Windows 7: New GPU and PSU causing CPU Tempreture to skyrocket?

New GPU and PSU causing CPU Tempreture to skyrocket?

Hi

So Installed a new GPU and a PSU and everything seems to be working fine. However I noticed when idel the CPU tempreture is 50+ and when playing a game it goes up to 90+, I turned it off of course as I do not want to risk blowing the cpu.

Although I am not 100% certain I do believe the tempreture never really reached that high before I put in the new GPU. These tempretures are not safe are they? Will I have to buy a new cooling system for the CPU or are there some tweeks I can try out first.

They are high.
I would check to see if the CPU heatsink was dislodged during the install of the power supply.

The heatsink is the fan and the little cage its in above the CPU right? If so im pretty sure it has not moved. It seems to be the the same position as always and does not move an inch.

Can you take some pictures of inside your case and post them? As pbcopter pointed out, the cpu fan may have been bumped. It doesn't take much to knock them loose.

Push down the 4 pins on processor heatsink and see if one of them clicks, perhaps on of them got loose causing temp to rise.

Just tried, it seems to be fitted properly. Still having the same problem with the tempreture. Any other ideas?

Take the graphics card out and see if the temps change. Report back.

I took the graphics card out, temp stays the same. According to ''GPU Temp'' my GPU was running at 40 degrees

So does this mean there is a problem with my CPU cooling?
