Maybe I didn't push them in correctly I will check later. I don't know about the other stuff, but like I said graphics card, hdd, motherboard are all at a normal temperature.

Since he's hitting 95c at 100% load I'm pretty sure that his cpu fan is being powered. However like someone mentioned, make sure that you have the fan plugged into the cpu pin on the mobo. You can tell because they put writing near the pins and should say something related to the cpu fan. If this doesn't work then you just mounted the fan wrong.

The only thing is now that I've turned the computer on, I'm scared to go back in since I don't have an anti-static wrist band. How long does a computer have to be off for that not to be a problem?

Just touch the case before you start messing around in there. You don't really need an anti-static wristband to work inside your computer. Just make sure you ground yourself by touching bare metal inside your case.

turn of the the PSU from the back, but keep it plugged into the wall. Take off the side panel and touch the PSU to ground yourself. While working, you can touch the PSU every so often. you can also touch the case too

You do NOT need a static wrist band, just discharge yourself by touching your metal case or something else metal. I work at a computer repair shop in the last 4 years I've seen two items get zapped this way. It is very uncommon.

Second I really, really think you don't have the heatsink secured properly. Most of the time when a customer comes in with a custom build that is overheating it is an improperly installed heatsink. Pushpin has its pluses and minuses but people new to computers are sometimes afraid to push them in as hard as they need to for fear of breaking something. You can put a pretty good amount of force on those push-pins before you break anything.

So, turn off the machine, touch the case, open it up and lift gently on the heatsink. Does it have any play at all? A properly installed heatsink will have nearly zero give. If yours does lift up you need to push the pins in all the way, until you feel them "click".

Now another common mistake first timers make is that they see the arrows on the pins and so they rotate them after installation. In fact those arrows are only there to show you how to remove the heatsink, rotating the pins actually unlocks them. You want to leave them in the same orientation you installed them in.

If you still have problems post back with pics of your computer (internal obviously) and what happened when you checked the pins.

Yes I turned the pins the way the arrow showed the first time. I fixed that and reinstalled the cpu heatsink the right way. The pins are through the motherboard. It's still overheating though.

Buy yourselves some thermal grease (my recommendation goes to MX-4). Take out your CPU heatsink. Use rubbing alcohol to wipe off the thermal grease on the heatsink and the CPU (make sure none is spilled on the motherboard, take out the CPU just to be safe). Put a small drop of new thermal grease (size of the uncooked grain rice) on to the CPU (after putting CPU back to the motherboard). Firmly install the heatsink back with all 4 pins firmly pushed down and secured.

I already have thermal grease.
