Re: Cpu overheating?
First off, what are you reading the temps with? I would suggest RealTemp is the best option
Secondly, what is the VID of the chip? If you're running at stock clocks then set the VCore to the VID in the bios, auto is notorious for overvolting.
As the others have suggested, check your case for restricted airflow.
How many fans does your case have and what is their orientation? Front and side as intake, rear and top as exhaust? or a variation on that theme?
