My guess is, if that is right and not some static message, that the Fan was possibly replaced or reseated.
Or other fan or heatsink, possibly on the board or case.
Have to wonder what Thermal Paste they use.

Is this water cooled at all? Possible air bubble int he line was removed?

Just guessing.

haha, yeah it sounds like a "Whoops, forgot to peel that off" situation, they perhaps even they forgot the thermal paste.
Sadly, I have forgotten to peel off the protective sticker once, and only once. Considering that was a 38 hour day and assembled almost 50 computers
With a bit of luck you'll get her back and all will be good.

Just rang the Tech support and was told the heat sink had been damaged and not correctly seated. Resulting in the overheating.

So they have replaced the processor and also put on a new cooling system

Now I can't wait until it arrives back in 2 hours time

I certainly can't fault them for service and repair time.

Ok Guys processor and Cooler replaced ran Prime 95 now for a while ambient temp in room is 28C and here are the result still warm I think but not a 100C on all four cores like it was before the repair.

Personal opinion....

I'm a little concerned about those high temps, especially long term. They could easily shorten the lifespan of the processor over the long run.

It's nice that the systems is running at 4gig, but remember, that processor wasn't rated to run at those speeds, and certainly not for the long haul. In my opinion, if you're going to run one of those processors at 4gig, it should be run on water cooling, not air.

With that said, what is the "warranty" of that system??? Something to think about.

Of course this is only my opinion, so take it with a grain of salt.

BTW, I'm running my i7-930 at 3.5gig with a Noctua NH-C12P SE14 CPU cooler, in an Antec P182 case, my ambient room temp is 80F/27C and these are my temps…

Temps OK?-current-system-temps.jpg

This is with my 4 120mm case fans avaraging 1400 RPMs!!! - Experience with Gigabyte motherboards? BTW, i'm replacing my case with a Cooler Master HAF-X, so that should help with the temps further.

One last point... I will make the argument that you're probably never going to stress your system in real world everyday use like prime 95 does, even in gaming, but... and high heat can cause other components to fail as well.

My two cents.

BTW What are your idle temps? Mines 44ish.

Yeah,, that why I say,, over-clocking is not a poor mans hobby.
Cause no matter what you do to a system, an over-clocked system is not going to last nearly as long as a stock clocked system. Regardless of cooling. your still pushing more voltage than the processor can actually handle which is why it is rated the way it is. It will last longer the cooler you keep it, but it won't last as long as it would at it's rated speed.

And in most (the majority) of circumstances, Over-Clocking gives a very minimal performance boost. 3 things to make a modern high end system faster....

A.) Faster CPU
B.) Faster Ram (this can also be minimal boost, depending on the system and what it is being used for)
B.) Faster Hard Drive
C.) Faster Video Card

One thing that doesn't matter much today, but I have actually seen a huge performance boost from, which surprised the hell out of me. Faster Refresh Rated Monitor, believe it or not.
