High CPU Temps (Phenom2 955)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My idle temps are around 46C and when playing Bad Company 2 (that's pretty much the only load its been under for awhile) it gets into 60+C. Why is this? I've got this fan with arctic silver 5 with no overclocking or anything.

try reseating it and make sure you apply a very thin amount of thermal paste.

i would look at how you applied your thermal paste, make sure you have a thin layer applied and make sure the heatsink is layed down flat and tight against the cpu, also this may sound stupid but have you mad sure the fan is connected, i've managed to put one in without the fan being connected before, it happens. p.s. i have a 955 overclocked to 3.8ghz and my idle temps are around 28c.
