Hi, i seem to be having some kind of a problem with this processor, or maybe im wrong and its something else, but actually it goes into some high temperatures and i think it is not normal, the reactions i get from the pc when it freezes ( especially on games with high requirements ) are really cpu related i think..it might have to do with the card which is a NVIDIA 9600 GT nothing on my pc had an overclock or something similar so i wonder if it is possible for a problem like to just, appear..from nothing. Because this is a new pc bought it couple of months ago! Its really strange and i would really like to fix this because i think it is making some kind of damage to the pc in general =|
Check the Thermal Specification for the CPU if it is still within the range of operation.
Get your CPU sl number and search in the link below.
Website: http://processorfinder.intel.com/default.aspx http://processorfinder.intel.com/default.aspx
The temperature can go up to 71.4°C
If it is much over the range then, check the following:
Make sure that you have a PSU Atx Version 2.2 at least.
Make sure that the chassis is TAC - Thermally Advantage Chassis
Check for proper aeration in the chassis. (cable)
Update the bios to the latest version.
Re-integrate the cpu with new small amount of thermal paste (clean the cpu before)
If you are using an Intel board, use this software to monitor the cpu temperature

Check with board manufacturer if there is still problems.
All the best,
