You got a reading of 80 degrees and decided to test it by touch? Yeah, well, you have fun with that...

I dont think that is the help/advice the OP really needs right now.

OP, do as Puckbandit35 recommended and reseat the heatsink. When doing this, make sure to clean off all the thermal paste using alcohol, then reapply a grain of rice sized dap in the middle and make sure the heatsink is tightened/secured evenly.

I would also recommend getting an aftermarket hsf for that chip I've been out of the amd loop for little bit but I'm pretty sure that's a 125w 90nm cpu and it runs pretty hot. Still something is wrong though temps shouldn't be that high definitely re-seat with the above recommendations.

It could be the Southbridge. What I would do, is enter your BIOS and look for temp monitoring. Compare those temps with the ones you see in Everest.

Great advice. Be very careful when doing this though, as not to damage the chips or mounting clips/assembly.

Are you sure the temp programs are not showing the total temp of both cores? I heard bad things about everest, but im not sure if it would do that or not.

Sure seems like it... but it couldnt hurt if u put ur hand on the heatsink. If ur hand doesnt get burned in any way, i think its fine and u should look at the temperatures of core 1 and 2 instead of the "core" temperature in everest.
