I THINK I might have done something bad.. When I was putting my mobo back in my case, My hand hit my CPU HSF, and it rotated a bit. I moved it back, but think I did something that's bad.. It says I'm running IDLE at 50 C. Which almost makes sense because it's 80F in here.. hmm....

Any thoughts?

If you rotated it, it's likely that you broke the seal between the CPU and the heatsink. I'd suggest applying some new thermal paste.

Yeah, reseat the HSF and see if it helps...

Cured AS5 will crack if it's rotated or twisted.
