Sorry for taking ages to reply folks - was trying to fix it, and almost broke everything.

Heh, it's stock unfortunately. Here's a pic:
Still don't know what the issue is, but I'm going to re-apply the thermal compound today. I'll do that and post the temps again. Really hope it fixes it. 'Cause it never used to go that high earlier, on stock speeds.

Hope it's not the case but you may have damaged something. I would put a better cooler on there and see if everything pans out.
Oh one other thing... I think most or all of those programs warn that they create an environment that is not normal and can damage components!
It's a Carbide 500R and the board is a Crosshair V. Crap, I hope I haven't actually damaged anything. This is worrying.EDIT
: I didn't see the other replies. I'll def. look into the voltages in the BIOS right now. Thanks for that! Also, there's a 200mm side panel fan that you can't see in the pic, 'cause obv. the door is taken off.Edited by firefiber - 11/15/12 at 3:33am
