Windows 7: Error's, Crashes, BSOD Oh My. Combo BSOD's

I'd suspect the CPU is the one with that temperature, but check your BIOS for the final call. If you don't know how to find the CPU temperature in the BIOS, check Page 50 here:

If the CPU really is the culprit, confirm the CPU fan is working right, and if so, remove the fan and cooler, remove the old thermal paste, and apply a fresh layer of Arctic Silver.

Seeing the announcement of the last few posts being nom'd by ye olde crashe I figured I would throw one up here for posterity. I have a new fan in the case and I have placed new paste on the cpu. The store I went too didnt have arctic silver but it is still a silver based paste. So far temps remain largely the same at idle but I noticed a dramatic decrease in temp during full load.

The CPU is 10 degrees C cooler now under full screen load then it had been before. The GPU is still getting to 65-70 during full load but ive been reading thats nominal for the HD 5770. Going to eventually place the third fan into the rig if I can find someone with small enough hands to assist on mounting.

As of now I havent had any crashes or black screen at the event log is showing nothing over the last 24 hours. Fingers crossed but I think the problems been taken care of. Also may as well go out on a classy note and ask to have Jonathan's children as you have been so very extremely helpful.

Will post back in a couple of days for follow up and to mark this as solved it everything stays stable.

Ninja Edit: I forgot I meant to ask, is it..normal for the cpu to be affixed to the heatsink when you pull it from the motherboard? Cause..mine kinda did that. The old paste looked like something you'd apply to a highway to seal the ashphalt. Is there a life to the paste? When I wiped the old stuff off it still had a bit of grease to it on the top layer but I had to really dig to get the rest to come off.

Glad to hear it! I just threw Arctic Silver out there, but as you figured, any thermal paste will do.

Doesn't surprise me...old thermal paste can get real nasty. It does have a life, though I'm not sure what it typically is. The way I figure out if the paste has exceeded it's lifetime is when the temperatures rise.

Weeeelp its been quite the long while and so far not a single crash. Not a one. Heat was still somewhat an issue until I re-checked the fans and saw both were blowing into the case. Now that ive flipped the big nasty it didnt even go above 3500rpm to keep temps within range after a small marathon of gaming (Previously it would hit 6500rpm and sound like a cesna was flying around in my case.) So thanks for all the help, this one is solved.
