My name is Jacob. I have a Compaq Presario Notebook PC (CQ62-209wm).
I've recently installed a new CPU, AMD Phenom II N660 (3.0Ghz).
Since I installed it, I've been monitoring my CPU temperature. It usually averages around 60C, and today while I was trying to convert a .avi file to an ISO to burn it to a disc, it reached 93C.
I'm pretty sure I applied the thermal paste correctly; I used a dab about the size of a grain of rice and spread it into a thin layer.
(I used Antec Formula 7)
I cleaned the old thermal paste of the heatsink.
I'm pretty sure everything is clean, and I make sure that I do not block the vents.
My fan works fine.
What is a normal, safe CPU temperature?
At what temperature should I be worried about CPU damage?
What is the problem here?
And what can I do to keep my CPU cool?
