✔ Best Answer
All modern CPUs have built-in thermal protection so it's virtually impossible to overheat one to death. If they get too hot, they simply shutdown.

Which monitoring program are you using? If those temps are in Fahrenheit, there is no problem. If they're in Celsius, I doubt your system would continue running. The -27 is most likely just a glitch in the software. Try another program or check the temp readings in the BIOS.

If your temps are really that high & it's not a software glitch (did you check the temp readings in the BIOS?), then it probably means the heatsink isn't installed properly.

high temperature is happening during game play otherwise it is normal 50 49 48 47 during idle and my PC did not shutdown when the temp goes 100 Celsius and i also check in bios it is normal one thing i forgot to tell you when i update my geforce drivers then high temperature happening after updating geforce driver

"i also check in bios it is normal"

Is the BIOS temp the same as the software temp?

Please report the actual numbers on BIOS as well as another software program like HWMonitor since high 40C's to low 50C's does sound high for your idle temps, even for a Q9550, even somewhat overclocked. If you are not running stock settings, please include your actual OC settings as well. Your issue may well still be a poorly installed heat sink with those numbers. Simply, if the thermal compound does not cover the correct area, is too thick, or has air bubbles (spread it on), it may well be the problem. Please also look at this:

select your processor from the list and read the advice.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
