ahm, whats "re-paste the cpu heat spreader"? i disassemble the heat sink i think...hmmm and then wipe its portion facing the processor...i notice their is a pencil like color and its sticky so i wipe it out then slowly assemble the heatsink...and open again my pc...its the same it reaches 97C...can figure it out wheres the problem and how to fix it? im afraid it will not function anymore and this pc cost much...please help me! im begging!
Ah, you forgot to put the thermal paste that ensures maximum heat transfer from the CPU to the heatsink. If you don't have one, I recommend Arctic silver 5 which you can purchase here: Newegg.com - Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-3.5G - Thermal Compound / Grease
After applying the thermal paste properly, you should not get over 70 celsius when compressing, gaming etc.
thank you so much for your suggestions. i'll try this when i have a money!

You must turn off your computer. unplug it from the wall, take off the heatsink, get some alcohol for electronics, and cotton swabs, then clean the CPU until it's shiny and free of a gray substance. Do the same with the heatsink part that goes on top of the CPU.

Once you do this, you need to apply a paste known as thermal compound, or thermal paste.
What this paste does is transfer the heat from the CPU to the heatsink in an efficient way so your CPU does not overheat like yours is.
omg! that gray thing is a thermal paste? i just wipe it out. i thought that causes my temp too high...is that paste available here in Philippines? i hope it cost less cause im only a student
No, it does the exact opposite, it transfer heat from the cpu to the heatsink in a better way.
And I am sure that if you go to a local computer store they would have some, take your computer, and ask if they could apply it for you as well, generally it is not too expensive, there are different brands, and types, but they ALL do the same in the end.

Alright, best of luck Julius! Don't forget you can always ask as many questions as you need! There is no such thing as asking too many questions when it comes to computers.

Do a google search for applying thermal paste as there IS a right way and a wrong way to do it. When cleaning the heatsink and cpu, I would suggest using something like a coffee filter as it doesn't leave lint behind. When applying the thermal paste, put a small drop in the MIDDLE of the CPU. A drop about the size of a grain of rice is plenty. Too much and it could squish out beyond the CPU and cause problems.

Important things to remember: A clean heatsink/CPU surface is a happy surface. DO NOT touch either surface with your fingers after you have cleaned it. Use a coffee filter if you have one to do the cleaning and prepping. A SMALL drop right in the middle of the CPU about the size of a grain of rice or small pea will be more than enough. Reinstall the heatsink/fan carefully and torque it down evenly from corner to corner......this will evenly distribute the paste across the face of the CPU.

Follow those steps and you should be fine.

They are not responsible for computer hardware faults if the OP had his computer custom built, and I don't see him saying his computer has OEM hardware. Plus, if it was the case, he already opened the case, and the waranty has been voided anyway.

Julius, can you take a picture of your heatsink, and CPU with the thermal paste as you applied it?
Is it an aftermarket heatsink? What type?
