are u sure u took off the bit of plastic off the bottom of the cpu? ( if new )
are u sure its on right?

even on stock cooler it should be like 60 - 70 underload.. when its pretty hot.. :/

Yes I'm sure it's on right I even put on a second CPU and that was running hot too, not as hot though.

mmm thats really weird... :/ shouldnt be that hot on stock cooler..

u can get a cpu cooler pretty cheap if u wanna try that.. i would recommend the Coolermaster Hyper 212+ cheap but good cooler :]

if its running that hot i dont think a arftermarket cooler would make that much of a difference though. might keep it stable though...

what are your volts on ur cpu?
something aint right lol

You should get an alcohol based cleaner and complete polish off the CPU & heatsink surfaces. Use coffee filters to keep from getting any dust or skin cells on them. Then only put a small amount of the paste on the cpu, not gobs. Then try again. If you're uncomfortable about what type of cleaner to use this brand is great for making sure your CPU is spotless.

What sort of thermal paste are you using currently?

Does your current CPU heatsink have a fan attached or is it passive? Do you know the exact brand name so we could look it up?

Alot of rehashing going on in this thread so I'll sum things up.

Yea, use rubbing alcohol to clean off the CPU and heatsink before applying a new application of Thermal Interface Compound. Not too much TIM or you'll smother it and increase temps. Too little and there will be areas not touching metal to metal increasing temperatures. There is a science to applying TIM, a formula you must do in your head based off pressure + flatness of the two surfaces.

Yes those temperatures are insane even for stock cooler if you aren't overclocked.

No your GPU being hooked up improperly won't increase the heat of your CPU, although its presence may as it gives off heat. This is a necessary evil but for someone conscious about this kind of thing they might notice an increase in CPU temps when upgrading video cards.

Hyper212+ also has my vote for its price point in the $30 range.

Any other questions feel free to ask, I'll be watching this thread.

Thanks for all the input! I use this stuff called Thermal Grease, I was thinking that getting a better cooler won't actually resolve the issue, only treat the symptom here. I will look up my volts, I think I saw it in BIOS. I noticed that the system temperature was @ 28 Celsius. I'm going to follow your directions and clean the thermal paste off properly and put a little glob on it. I took a picture of my BIOS with my phone, sorry that it's a little crooked, take a look at pic. Also, Here is the test I took last night right after playing a game of Black Ops, take a look at where it says 'HIGH', that's what the temps went up to during game. Is it possible to speed up the cpu fan ?Another thought, couldn't this just be a bad CPU that I got from Digiconcepts ? I just purchased it 6 weeks ago.

Yeah thats still really hot.

You didn't mention though, is your CPU cooler just a heatsink or does it have a fan attached as well?

It might help if we had a photo of your case interior.

That is correct, the LEFT shot was right after a game. The HIGH that you see was during game play.

sounds like you used way to much TIM... clean it all off and apply just a small pea sized dot of it on th cpu
