    103C? I get 42C with MaxxMEM, 10C more with Prime95, you had 57C with MaxxMEM and now 46C more?
    Besides, temps should not exceed 100C as at 100C the CPU supposed to throttle down (TM2 must be enabled in BIOS Advanced BIOS Features)

    100C?????

    If that is correct stop testing now and be sure your cooler is fully and proper attached, that's way too hot!

    Sorry I was reading it wrong. I did recheck my grease, added more, and ran the PC for thirty minutes while I transferred files. Real temp was reading between 45 and 55C. I did not run the burn test. I do want to thank everyone insofar for their time, patience, and knowledge.

    Kind of. I am still monitoring it. Had heat issues, so I turned the CPU down to 2.8ghz to stem the heat until I get an aftermarket cooler. Going to boot it back up to 3.00 and monitor it since I added more grease and checked my fan.

    Which cooling are you looking for air or water?
    You can find good air cooler for 40 USD or less, under 30 with special deals, keep an eye on.

    Very nice, Ty. Using air. Do you know any GOOD fan coolers that use blue LED's? My father in-law and I did custom body work on my Antec to add more LED's, and I would like to find a good fan with said feature.

    Case fan you mean?
    I don't know what's good, by the specs Cooler Master fans look pretty good.
