Windows 7: CPU Temperature Overheat

I believe the voltage range for that CPU is 1.13 - 1.4V.

If on auto the bios of the motherboard is setting it to 1.5v then that is way too high. If the cpu is at that voltage it could explain the high temps, well I think so anyway. I must admit I have no knowledge of that CPU but 1.5v on any CPU is a heck of a lot and temps will get very high very quick.

You have to ask the question as to why the motherboard bios on AUTO is setting the voltage so high. It could be a number of things. Have you tried removing the CPU from the socket and re-seating it? That could be worth doing. For some reason the motherboard is throwing too many volts at the CPU, whether it's a bad connection or whether the motherboard or CPU has been damaged or gone faulty I don't know.

If that doesn't work then I would suggest you read the online manual for how to set the voltage manually and get in and set it to say 1.2v as quick as possible after booting to avoid any damage if you can.

Not sure what else to suggest.

I think I have to enable Extreme OV to access the other voltages for the CPU. There is CPU Vcore (1.5v) and CPU Voltage. I'm not sure which one is set too high as other values are messed up as well. It's like my CMOS jumper has incorrectly configured my voltage settings or something.

Can you please measure the rail voltages at the 24 pin plug using a digital multimeter as I still would like to see those readings.

Mike try the Arctic Silver cleaning and prep solutions the clean solution will eventually remove just about anything and I have removed some pretty awful hard compounds with it.

Another solution is citrus oil left to soak and then cleaned off with rubbing alcohol I think you know it as.

With that hard compound you had it could possibly have been the adhesive type too

Did you ever Load Optimized Defaults after resetting BIOS with the jumper pin ?

Some motherboards also have a Load Fail-Safe Defaults option.
If your BIOS has such an option you could try that.

I don't have a multimeter. The PSU isn't the fault. It started when I removed the jumper pin.

I'll try loading fail safe. If I keep trying to power it on and it keeps saying this over heating, won't it damage it more?

You never said if you ever did a Load Optimized Defaults after resetting BIOS.
No one here knows for sure except you, if you did this.

Do you have your motherboard manual ?
Hopefully info is in there documenting how to Load Defaults.
It may be as easy (quick) as enter BIOS, tap a function key, and save and exit.

I haven't loaded optimised defaults, no. My BIOS does have this. However, I'm installing a new cooler right now as I've read way too many temperature issues with this cooler. I'll post back with updates.

I have attached 2 photographs of the CPU. Luckily it doesn't look damaged or burnt. Thank goodness!

Good luck with the new cooler and hopefully that will fix the high temp warning.

As you never loaded optimized defaults that could explain why the voltages are set the way they are.
You are using "factory defaults".

Even if the new cooler fixes the temp warning, i would not want to run the system with voltages higher than they should be.
I would still Load Optimized Defaults, check voltages, and go from there.

I did the CMOS clear jumper pin again and will also be sure to load optimised defaults.

That's the top of the CPU pump block. The heatsink/thermal pad is on the bottom of the block.

Here is that "scratch" I was telling you guys about. Those very tiny little scratches. It's the one right under the sticky pad.
