getting really high temps on stock volts

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
im thinking maybe it's because of the warm weather but not sure

think i need to clean my heatsink? how often should this be done, cuz i've never done it

but since it's only on stock volts, could temps really get too high and damage my cpu? even on stock v?

very high temps, i happened to see it went up to 69c when i was gaming

yea the info in my sig is correct

ive never re seated my heat sink before, is it hard? i dont want to screw up

i remember trying to do it before but it was really difficult

i'm guessing it's more complicated than that

i don't have the tools at the moment, like the thermal paste or anything

Reapply the thermal compound the right way

aka Size of an uncooked rice grain in the middle

Remember to clean off the old compound from both the heatsink and the CPU with rubbing alcohol or acetone

should i stay away from gaming till i replace the thermal compound?

is it normal to get numbers like 69c from stock voltage?
