I Checked that and it said a different reading it said 34, Windows said 74, and my Temp probe says 45 this is soo confusing.

Mate, that is fantastic that you can do that yourself!
Just be careful with the paste, any air bubbles can affect the heat transfer.

One of the difficult things here, is not knowing how much or how little a person knows. There is no way I would have suggested to someone to do what you did.

Now I know that you seem to be "on the ball" I can be less reserved when suggesting things to you, if you need any assistance in the future.

But, outstanding! Well done!
