Did you build the computer yourself? Does it have a stock heatsink and fan on it? IS the computer new?

Were the temperatures always that high or did they only go that high a while ago? What Heatsink and fan do you have on the CPU?

The temps shouldn't be this high even with the stock cooler on it. I'm thinking that the heatsink mightn't be seated properly. Did you put Thermal Compound on it?

Yo, OverClocker!

Did you apply the thermal compound and then do your damndest to remove it all, pref with a credit card? If not do so.

Thermal compound will act as a heat insulator if doing anything other than filling the recesses on the interface twixt HS an CPU. Metal to metal Xfers heat far far better than Arctic silver etc.

When you say you're OHeating at std, are you sure you unclocked all the settings?

If you think the HS is coming loose or not seated (watch the stepped lip on the HS/Zif socket interface)then pay it immediate attention.


Get back to me if this is of no hekp
