1) The heatsink is properly seated and fan is running.
2) using a good thermal compound.
3) It's running at stock voltages or lower.
4) You aren't running an overclock because of bad automatic bios settings
When i finally got to the computer, I noticed the heatsink was not seated properly so i took it off and swapped out the processor with the q9550 and then mounted it properly. Running about 60 degrees idle. I'm hoping that when the paste cures it will go down a couple more degrees, but it's much better as it is.
