Real overheated CPU

Intel Core i5 750 qaud core processor

Specs: Windows 7 x64, As listed
Okay, so my CPU is beyond warm.

There is a screenshot of pretty much idle and I
hit 90 degrees C.

My components listed here:

The computer is rather new so I truly doubt it's
because of dust in the fans or something like
that. Had it for two weeks more or less.

I think it all started by installing CPUIdle, not
sure though. Before that I hit around 40C idle
and 30-40 min after I installed it and rebooted I
start hitting 90C. Uninstalled now but as you
see it still haunts me.

So now, I beg you for answers. Help.

And the computer haven't died from
overheating yet, and I think it always go pretty
high while playing games (80C).

Speedfan may not be reporting the temperatures accurately. In fact, your computer probably should have shut down before reaching those cpu temperatures. A better program is RealTemp, but even better is to go into the BIOS and see what the temperatures are.

Oh, forget to write that. Gone into bios which says 88C.
RealTemp saying same as SpeedFan. Same goes for
CoreTemp.

OK-I'm not sure how installing CPUIdle would have caused the cpu to overheat, but have you tried uninstalling it ? By the way, your last two links don't seem to work properly. Did you just buy this computer or build it yourself ?

I built it myself. Worked perfectly fine so far. And yes, I
uninstalled it and rebooted several times.

"Work now?"

I know how to post a link. And it works for me so not really sure
why it doesnt work for you. Since it doesn't work when I write it
normally so just remove the _ and copy paste. Not that hard

"just remove the _ and copy paste"

I realize that will work. The _ shouldn't have been there in the 1st place. And I don't know about anyone else but I don't speak Swedish.

Did you read the documentation before installing CPUIdle? It doesn't support the Core i3/i5/i7. In fact, it hasn't been updated in over 2 years.

Looking at the Speedfan screenshot...how can you trust software that reports the +12v rail as 5.31v & the -5v rail as +3.58v? Why is one core at 1.09v & the other at 1.58v.

Well, read some comments on MajorGeeks and some guy
got it working with a newer processor of some sort. And yes,
of course I understand that most of you don't speak swedish,
but that wasn't really of much importance to the issue
anyway.

And I really don't have any clue whatsoever what the +5 -5 V
and so forth is, but here is another screenshot with CPUID
Hardware.

I'm not sure what the word is in english but the CPU "pasta",
the thing you put on the CPU was rather hard and almost
burnt. I remember when I accidently put my finger on it the
first time I mounted the fan and it was all sticky.

But that might just be natural. Maybe it will be better if I go
and buy some new of this cold thing and apply? Or invest in a
couple of fans?

Now it's solved. The CPU fan was a bit loose so had to force it
into place. damn intel fans

It's good that you finally figured out what was wrong-you might want to check the cpu shutdown temperature in the BIOS, though.
