Did the stock cooler go bad? You might look at your case cooling to make sure it is pushing the heat out of the case. If the cooler is simply blowing hot air on the heat sink, a better cooler may be of no help.

Well, sorry but I don't have cooler to suggest, but I would still be concerned about case cooling. 100 is high, but not really excessive - that is, not to the point I would be worried about damage. Are you having stability or artifact problems?

You mean the sound from the fan running full speed?

What are your CPU temps?

If the CPU temp is high too, then you need to concentrate on case cooling. In the meantime, if you are overclocking, stop. Overclocking should never be done without constant temperature monitoring. Your motherboard utilities disk should have a monitoring program (or check for a more recent version on your motherboard or PC maker's website). If none, I recommend CoreTemp for newer Intel and AMD64 CPUs, or http://www.techpowerup.com/realtemp/' class='bbc_url' title='External link' rel='nofollow external'>RealTemp for Intels. SpeedFan is a great and popular alternative, or you can try Motherboard Monitor. Unfortunately, I have found that these programs often have problems properly identifying and labeling the sensor they are reading. The temperatures shown are as accurate as the inexpensive, low-tech sensors will allow, but it may say System Fan instead of CPU Fan. Fortunately, the programs do allow you to edit the labels, so I use Everest to verify the temperatures (as it is able to put sensor to label correctly), then edit the label in the monitoring program. In Everest, look under Computer > Sensor, then wait a couple seconds for the readings to appear. Unfortunately, Everest does not minimize to the system tray to show real-time temperatures, otherwise, you could use Everest instead of the others.
