Ok, I've used artic silver 5 on my athlon xp 2500+. Bingo! My idle temperature went down from 47 to a mere 39...and this has been goin steady for almost 2 months. THEN, just last week, I've noticed that it went back up to 44 degrees while at idle. Upset yet curious enough I thought it was just some stuck up malicious program circling about my processes that wouldn't end so I decided to reformat entirely my system. Hoping that my temp would return to the normal 39 sadly it didn't...still 44. So can anyone advice what's this all about? Is this problem software or hardware in nature. I checked my fans, they are all working...or did the artic silver 5 fail? Do I need to reapply once more? Please...I can't sleep just because of this predicament.

Oh for anyone's concern here is the specs of my PC:

Athlon XP 2500+
ECS N2U400 motherboard
2x Geil Dual Channel PC400 Value 256MB DDR 2x256
Inno 3D FX5200 128MB-128bit
40GB Samsung 7200rpm HDD

I have 2x3000rpm case fans and my 400W power supply has a 12cm fan right above the processor.

Please, I'd gladly appreciate any help at all.

AMD Athlon XP 2500+ Barton overclocked to 3200+ (2.2Ghz with 1.68VCore)

You may simply need to re-apply the AS5. Either that or is it a hot day?
