|Your CPU has a maximum rating of 90C so it is designed to shut down at that temperature to prevent damage. If you continue to run it at those temperatures, you will reduce it life span. Your CPU is a mobile Pentium so you have a laptop or possibly an all-in-one desktop. You need to clean out the vents with a can of compressed air to blow out all of the accumulated dust. If needed, open all of the access panels and blow through those also. Understand that laptops are made to be used on hard surfaces, not laps and beds which block many of the vents on the bottom and the sides of the unit. There are laptop cooling pads with built in fans and many of them can be used on soft surfaces to help keep your system cooler. |
If blowing out the dust through the vents and panels, plus a cooling pad does not solve this for you, you may want to seek professional help, unless you are comfortable disassembling the unit to do a more thorough cleaning.
As long as you have used the unit for quite a while with out trouble and no one has disassembled it, it is probably not an improperly installed heat sink. If it was serviced recently, then that is a distinct possibility.
You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
