So when I'm running Prime95, my CPU temp is hitting 72 degrees C right now. Is that normal or too hot?
i'm running the Small FFT's right now.

72șC is way too hot! Look into a better cooling solution as the first step to correcting this.

I cleaned out my PC, it was a lot duster that i thought it was.
So I replaced some fans that where like 5 years old and added and new intake fan in the front bottom.
I took the cpu chip out and replaced the thermal. I found what looked like a piece of burnt dust on the pin side of the CPU, it came off easily thankfully the CPU now looks clean.

Net effect when i ran the Prime95 Small FFT's test, the cpu never went above 50C. so it looks like my PC is running a lot cooler over all.

I was able to play WOW tonight for 6 hours with no BSOD. Which is a big improvement.

Going to do some more testing to see if BSOD problem is fixed or not.
