To start with, you have an Intel CPU so your socket is NOT "9** somthing", it's LGA775.

There are a few possible explanations to your high temp readings:

1. you installed the heatsink incorrectly - solution: remove the heatsink, thoroughly clean it, apply the proper amount of thermal paste, then reinstall the heatsink. Since you have a dual core CPU, the paste should be applied in a thin line across the cores, NOT perpendicular to them. Here's the instructions:

2. your temp readings are inaccurate - solution: update the BIOS.

3. your case isn't cooled properly - solution: make sure the case cooling fans are configured properly. Exhaust fan in the rear is especially important, front intake fan is optional, side panel fans should not be used.

4. a combination of the above.

Ok ure right about the socket its LGA775

The heatsink are installed correctly with the thermal paste.
I cant update bios bcoz there isnt any new bios 2 update fot my mobo
Its the p5ld2-vm

The case is cooled properly i got 2 120mm exhaust fans at the back 120mm fan in the front and a exsternal fan under GPU for ekstra outlet

Thank you for ure help , but i think the problem is BIOS

Just a more minor thing to chek, you do have high speed, or just regular fans installed ? Ive seen some 'quiet' fans that are restricted from going too fast so they stay..., well quiet.
Not what a overclocked PC is looking for.
Doubt it, but cant hurt to be sure ??
Goood luck sorting it out.

"I cant update bios bcoz there isnt any new bios 2 update"

Your board is about 4 yrs old & there have been 15 BIOS updates over the years. Are you saying you already have the latest? Version 1303? There's also newer beta version 1401, dated 08/14/2007.

If it's not the BIOS, my guess is you installed the heatsink incorrectly. Too much paste, too little paste, or the line of paste is oriented the wrong way on the CPU. Take a look at this picture & make 100% sure that is how you applied the paste:

Ah the bios i got is the 1401 bios. i know the thermal paste can b a problem if not pasta correctly but i think the problem is with fan speeds cant get it over 2000rpm
