Ok but how do I fix the overheating issue.

get a better cooler? Ive suggested everything that immediately would be causing your cpu to overheat so at this point I am at a loss as to what you could do except get a better cooler/airflow

But there is something thats causing this right? It started today.

Fan problem probably. And then reseated the heatsink improperly.

Generally there are only a short list of things that could make your CPU overheat. Im sure this isnt everything:
1.) A loose, misaligned, or warped heatsink
2.) Dried out thermal pad or TIM
3.) Improper amount of TIM used when remounting (too much, or too little)
4.) Heatsink fan isnt working
5.) Heatsink fins clogged with dirt and dust
6.) Damaged IHS


My guess is that its number 1 or number 3. The hold down clips on the intel stock HSF can be quite temperamental. You may think you have all 4 of them engaged, but in reality one of them may pop out while your securing another one.
It wouldnt hurt to pull off the heatsink again, and start over.

Things that could cause a sudden overheat:

1. Dust in the heatsink
2. Fan on heatsink stops working
3. Stressing the CPU to a point it has never been stressed in the past
4. bumping the computer hard enough that the heatsink unmounts slightly
5. Computer spontaniously combusts due to an overload of gastric juices causing a gigantic buildup of mana that instantantaniously gets discharged directly into the heart of the cpu. <-- Probably the problem lies somewhere in here if not the fan

We both posted a list at the same time... I love you

I have check twice everything is perfect.

If your temps are still unsatisfactory then we can no longer help you.

If your looking for some other advice other than what we gave you then your out of luck. This question has been asked 4 billion times on this forum. About as many times as "How do I overclock?"

Just to be clear, if you have done anything to compromise the integrity of the TIM that was installed, and you didnt do a reseat, you will introduce air bubbles into the space between the heatsink and the CPU. This could cause an overheating condition too.

One other thing I forgot to mention, is your CPU overclocked? If so, revert back to stock. The Intel stock HSF is not designed to handle a thermal load beyond the designed TDP of the processor.



If none of these things fix it for you, I dont know what to tell you.
