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

As far as I can tell GPU is working fine, its running at around 40 degrees, I even tried putting my old GPU back in and I get the same sort of tempretures for my CPU. As for the PSU its a Corsair TX 850W 80 Plus, I think that is a pretty well known brand.

My PSU does have alot of cables coming out from it, most which are not in use, can that have an effect? Unfortunately I do not have the old PSU anymore so I cant test it.

Is there a way to test if the PSU is working properly or not?

Ok so I was able to get my hands on a new heatsink, and I am still having the same problem. So does this mean there is something wrong with my PSU?

Btw how accurate is Core Temp? The only reason I noticed the temps is because I decided to check, the computer has not restarted without that software being open. As a test, is it safe not to have Core Temp open and push the computer to see if it shuts off by itself? I assume the computer shuts off once it reaches 99 degrees?

I would check the temperatures in the BIOS, if you haven't already done so.

That tends to be the most accurate.

Checking your temps via BIOS seems legit.Confirm with AIDA64 Extreme Downloads | AIDA64.

Hey guys

Since the world did not end I thought I might as well give it all another try. I brought a new fan, a basic one, and my tempretures are much better.

Do you think it is still a little high considering the computer is not doing much? I did not reapply the paste as the fan already had it pre applied on it.

Oh and Merry Christmas.

Your right, I did not apply paste as the new fan already had it applied and I assumed that was good enough... so i guess i was wrong.

So last week I noticed a weird noise from my computer, and opening it up I noticed it seemed to be coming from the fan. Pressing down on it lessened the noise, and I tried removing the fan completely and starting the computer and the noise was completely gone, so I figured, "ok, bad fan, no...
