OK thanks again. Ordered GC Z9 which tested well and is a zinc, silicon compound that has tested as an A+ TIM for $6 @ ebay . Will 'Lap' the heatsink, since contact is the most important factor in getting max performance from the goop you but on & I'm not over clocking. Just want my box to run a smoothly as it can. @TobiSGD I'll look up how to get the Box running under full load. As for F - I'm not good with C so I convert everything. lol Old school American didn't learn metrics wasn't basic. Would this be a better topic for General Hardware? I just prefer posting in Slackware to learn how to do stuff under OS I know. Alcohol 99% is what I plan to use to clean everything, if need be since I'll be carefully sanding the heatsink, will know better after I see it state of components.

Unless you want to overclock lapping the IHS is not worth the effort, especially not when you don't have a high end cooling system. The E6600 is only 65W anyways, with a good paste and the stock cooler you should never run into problems.
Regarding setting the system under full load, just download wprime and let it run. Watch the temperatures, if they run over 60C check your cooling system.

@TobiSGD Search for wPrime results in windows cpu testing program?

Found the following:
Code:
 # stress --cpu 2 --io 1 --vm 1 --vm-bytes 128M --timeout 10s --verbose
And this small script:
[CODE]
#!/bin/bash

while : ; do
true
done/[CODE]

As well as, this combination of commands:
[CODE]
cd /usr/src/linux
make -j8 &
ping -l 100000 -q -s 10 -f localhost &/[CODE]

With the above where does the output go for me to read? Better yet how do I pipe the output to test_name.txt file to dissect once I have the info.?

Following may be of interest to others:

Sorry, I mixed that up, I actually meant mprime: http://mersenne.org/freesoft/

The output of those commands is irrelevant, their only function is to heat up the CPU. When running those commands/applications keep looking at the temperatures, using either Conky, an applet for your DE/WM or simply
Code:
watch -n 1 sensors
