I'm also suspecting it's showing Fahrenheit. 106 F is a very acceptable 41 C.

I'm with ignatzatsonic on this. If you computer is working properly, it's unlikely to have temps that high. The "thermometer" may be culprit.

If he is reading temps i Farenheit, it is normal for this CPU. After reading some reviews on the CPU, everyone is mentioning the high temps.

It's in Celsius. When i check the Fahrenheit box, it shows over 220 degrees. I use SpeedFan.

to ignatzatsonic: I would enter bios to check the temp, I don't know how though. I wouldnt care at all about the temp if I hadn't noticed a severe slowdown when using the computer. And yes, no overclocking.
Btw, i thought I kept this for another post, but after startup, CPU is at 100% without me doing anything. No scans, no backups, every program in the task manager list it's at 0%, still both the cpus are at max. This goes on for like 10 minutes, after which the usage drops to a normal 2-4% rate.

to p5bdkw: No BSOD. The fact is i had this problem, as I said, 3 months ago, when i had it to a specialist to be dusted. It simply shuts down when the temp reaches a peak level.

It might be worth it to replace the CPU. They go for next to nothing on Ebay.

Could a virus or Malware cause a 100% usage at start up like OP describes? Could it be helpful to sweep system in safe mode to eliminate this as a possibility? It does sound like a mechanical problem though but system sounds like it is getting cool air and cooler is functioning properly.

I scanned the whole computer, thoroughly, with both AVG Full Edition and Malwarebites. Found nothing. Also went to user/appdata/local/temp and saw no *.exe.

Sounds like a poorly seated heat sink with either too little or way too much thermal paste to me;

At least that was my experience (took me 3 tries to apply my own paste and set my heat sink and get it right, now with proper air flow i idle at 25*C or lower)

What kind of case do you have? Is it well ventilated? I agree. it sounds like a bad heatsink, or bad installation. Maybe consider a third party heatsink. Some are not expensive at all. artic silver installation instructions. There are several methods.

CPU and Motherboard Temp over 80 degrees C
Hello. I have lately been noticing the temperature on my CPU and Motherboard is really high. Its usually 70 degrees C but once I start gaming and code Java in background it will go up to 80+ degrees C. I am really worried. What can I do to prevent this to happen? Why does this happen?

Cpu at 50 degrees when virtually idle
I have noticed that my cpu wasn't always as cool as it use to be, but I have now noticed (since I installed my ram, whether that's coincidence or cause and effect I don't know) that the CPU is running at 50 degrees Celsius with a load of only 1-5%. It is an Intel i7 2600k with the stock cooler. Any...

Lowered GPU temps by 6 degrees!
Been looking for ways to lower overall case temps so I decided to see about lowering my video card's temps by replacing the stock thermo paste with Arctic Silver's MX-3. The result was a 6 degree temperature drop on the card! Went from idling around 67-67 to 61-62 idle. Cool. The first...
