CPU


That is way to hot for a processor. Either you don't have speedfan setup correctly or it is not working correctly.

That temp would also cause a shutdown.

Which may provide sufficient cooling for normal use but not gaming. Is the heatsink and fan clean?

Well, if you go by the reviews it is a decent one.

Also, have you tried booting into BIOS and checking your temps in there?
