Changed HSF orientation and switched to diamond 24 (WOW Temp Drop)

And it appears I was right. I am seeing a 16º C drop in temps at 100Mhz (4.4 to 4.5) faster than I was when I was banging 105º. I am also needing less voltage to do it so it must be the thermal resistance increase causing more voltage to get past the higher resistance which causes more heat and then volts to overcome the resistance. There is nothing wrong with this CPU there are no major heat issues like we thought (At least within reason. Over 4.6 and I get hot but I can bench at 5 now.

This may not work in every case but it is worth a try if you can swing it.
