Let it run for a while but may I suggest you are not quite finished yet after having read your last post.
Since you are running AMD and have had restrictions on your air flow around the processor, that concerns me. Running at high temperatures takes a good bite off the life of your processor. What are your ambient temperature generally and what temperatures are you running now?
If you cleaned your heatsink that is likely to be the main cause of "repair' around the cpu. The heatsink must
be working properly and must
be tigtheded or secured properly. Is the fan speed/load controlled or does it roar full speed all the time? The heatsink doing the correct job is reflected in the cpu temperature.
Since you have had cpu up at high temperatures I recommend you may have to lift the heatsink off and inspect the thermal grease. First perhaps tell me what is your running cpu temperature now? And under what sort of workload.
Was there any sign of heat discolouration on the heatsink? Distinct change of colour in broad areas?
I have listed one reference dealing with temperature, fans and heatsink mostly because there is a picture of what to look for if you do remove the heatsink. http://www.pclinuxos.com/forum/index.php/topic,65840.15.htmllm-sensors
, I have some notes around the place if they did not disappear with my disastrous exercise with my backup drive. Thanks for mentioning this I may be able to find my own posts about this in forum to recover some knowledge. From memory I had to do some fair tweaking and programming of the interface to make it look ok, you don't want empty figures in extra sensors.
Are you actually running lm-sensors?
