Windows 7: CPU Temperature 100 celsius!!!???!!

Going back to the basics, even with the fan spinning properly, the fins of the heatsink can become clogged with dirt very rapidly, depending on the environment in which it operates. Remove the HS/F and thoroughly clean both the fan and the heatsink, before reinstalling them. If they are both clean to begin with, then you have to determine where the airflow problem is. This can be facilitated by comparing the case temp to the CPU temp. Obviously the CPU temp is normally a few degrees higher than the case temp, but if there is a large difference, the higher the chance that the problem is limited to the CPU cooling itself. If the case temp is also high, then the cooling may be the combined result of both the ambient, case and CPU cooling.
