Have you overclocked? What thermal paste did you use?

Nope, no overclocks...

I have no idea, pc wasn't put together by me, but by a company (alternate) :/ (I knew I should've done it myself :/)

edit: Realtemp shows temps around 68C... but that's still way too much :/

lol

Ok in which case, I'd take the heatsink off, it sounds like it's either not got thermal paste, got miles too much on, or just not rigged it up correctly. I'd also download realtemp and see if that comes back with the same numbers

Reseat the V10 right now.

No way idle @ 80C is normal. Also thermal paste will not impact heat THAT much that his idle @ stock is 50C hotter than mine overclocked.

You did use thermal paste, correct?

it's midnight now and got school tomorrow, so I'll try to do this asap (never done it before, better start reading up first tongue.gif)...

Realtemp shows temps around 70 now, so something must be wrong...
