I wonder what caused this.
Is it normal to have overheating processor after six months?
By the way, my ram is at 2133 MHz default, but since the bios doesn't accept it, you have to set it manually. Does that count as overclocking?
uh... I don't even know where to begin.
but yeah I think we found your problem.
For one thing the chip is designed for ram @1600
1800 if it's XMP supported.
If you've done what I think you've done I'm surprised it hasn't exploded on you.
Could you please grab cpu-z and post a screenshot of the cpu and memory tabs would you?
you can attach images to your post using the paperclip icon.
Should look something like this.. (and yes the timed down speeds are normal in idle state)
