    Okay forgive me for sounding patronising (sp?) but you have applied thermal paste... not too little and not too much? You've made sure that the bottom of the heatsink has no deformities? (eg., if you can notice a bend or such on the heatsink, take to a machine shop and get 'em to help ya fix it)... You've checked that your software is checking the internal CPU diode and not the thermistat on the mainboard? Or that your probe you use for your rheobus (if you use one) is positioned correctly? Because I know certain mainboards (like mine for example) display CPU temp incorrectly. Shows my CPU running at 72 C idle, 85 C w/ load, but, my bios and my probe both are in the neighbourhood of 28 C idle, and 35 C under full load (seti@home and gaming). Just a thought :)

    If you go to the website of the folks who make your next motherboard, you may find that you can download this thingy known as a "manual".
    Those manual doojiggers tell about the points of interest on the motherboard, like jumpers, plugs, and other silly stuff.
    Yeah, anyway, you might want to check into one of those for your next PC.

    Or, as an alternative, a lot of retail, auto, hardware, home improvement types of stores offer to sell these whatchamacallits commonly referred to as a "fire extinguisher".

    Yeah, anyhow, I'd reccomend checking into one of those 2 options:rolleyes:
