Hi a buddy of mine recently came to me complaning, his pc was turning off when he was playing any intensive game, so i figured ok must be faulty psu, i gave him 1 spare i had, and it kept doing it, so ok must be the cpu, i asked him, what were his temps on idle, he said 80c+ i was like ***, so i asked what heay sink do you have, he said stock one, so i promplty told him to get a third party heatsink+thermal paste so he did, he got a ac freezer pro 7 and artic silver thermal paste, today i changed heatsink + thermal paste, and to our suprise we turn windows on, and boom the tmepeture are roughly the same, idle 70-71c, and any intensive game cause the computer to shutdown(this mean the cpu is going over 88+ c). so yea i need your help guys, this makes no sense to me, brand new heatsink and thermal paste , form a stock one, and the temps are relatively the same. and yes i removed the thermal paste that came with the heatsink and the old one from the cpu.
