    I am using it; look at my specs with no issues of temperature. I think there is still about 20-25 degrees of temperature offset; meaning you have to subtract that amount from your bios readings.
    Also check if the cooler is seated well, not extremely tight but with enough pressure to dispense the paste, assuring full contact of the CPU and cooler base plate.

    Regards.

    thanks for the response I think it's ok the temp only went up that high in the bios once that was a month ago it has been run ok since. I can't wait to get that bracket for the new cooler it's going to look nice.
