Heatsink problem, am I doing the wrong thing?
After receiving my Globalwin VGS08H, I took off the retail P3 heatsink/fan. I rubbed out the left-over white fluid (the silicon thermal compound, I assume) with my finger, I applied a new layer of silicon thermal compound on the P3 chip. However in Windows without game running, the temperature of my P3 450 surged from 46c to 60c. Anything wrong here? BTW, what is the dark grey square area on the new heatsink? Should I rubbed out those thing or shouldn't I apply any compound on my P3? Thanks.
