CPU Temperature 100 celsius!!!???!!

Very recently I started to here some weird noise coming from my computer, and then my 2.80ghz processor dropped to 2.66 and again to 2.13.

I knew something was wrong when I saw my temperature at boot was 70 celsius, and it was rising to 80 in about 20 seconds! And rising to 100 in 2 minutes

And I have no idea why it decided to become so hot because my fan is running at 1800 rpm so can someone please help!

Thanks!

Hello there. You may open your case and pull out the cooler for the processor and clean it.

Is that the temperature as reported by the BIOS, or by a 3rd party program? Either way, it seems a bit excessive. As regards the speed drops, this is normal and is a mechanism that is built-in to many motherboards and processors to limit damage caused by excess heat (higher speed = more heat).

Check the CPU fan. Is it actually spinning? Just because it is reported as spinning, it doesn't mean that it is as the motor may be spinning but the fan blades aren't. Are the fan blades damaged or impeded in any way? Could there be an accumulation of dust on the heatsink/fan, preventing them from working efficiently? Could the TIM (Thermal Interface Material) want replacing?

Sorry, couldn't resist. When you look at the motherboard - it's next to the ram. It's easy to spot.

If it's a stock heatsink fan and they are spinning - check there is not a large amount of dust on the blades etc.


And don't pull the thing off - you need to apply fresh thermal paste when you remove the heatsink and replace it.

I boot up the pc

35c 800rpm fan is spinning
It risen to 45 while I typed that line
Fan speed 1300

50c already 1400

It continues to rise to 55 and 1600rpm

The rising has slowed down but it goes up 1c every 15sec

60c 1700

Still rising very slow

Are you getting sufficient airflow through your system? An obstruction with the inlet of fresh air can cause a rise in internal temperature.
