I'm forced to use Duron aluminium hsf before I get the TR equipment. Although I run it on 2235Mhz@~1.568V it gets hot as 54C. It ran a continious period til 60-62C before I dropped the voltage/speed. (I'm running FAH, so it's constantly ~99% load)
Last time I removed the CPU I noticed a shining area around the core (used a neon lamp). I'm using AS5 , and some particles could make it from the HS to the core on areas there's no contact between the CPU and the HS(around the core , where the resistors are placed).
I hope I clarified the picture, sorry I don't have a digital camera.
Is there a danger of damaging the core?
