    Thank you mate! That is very kind of you to offer! I have been doing my homework and think I am well prepared, but if I have issues, I will certainly take you up on that very generous offer!

    Got my new CPU cooler today and just finished installing it. Hurray! So far the core temps at idle are running around 30-32 degrees, which is much cooler than the stock CPU cooler ever managed. I was thinking I should run a stress test with Prime 95 and see how good of a job it does. So, should I wait for the thermal paste to set up before running the test, or can I do it right away? The test will be a very good indicator on how good of a job I did on installing it.
