Before I started having issues, the idle temp was 28C but speed fan reported high core temps around 48C-54C.
It's the i7s that tend to run hotter-that's why I opted for the LGA1156 quad core i5.
And I didn't need the built-in video either.

If Monkey Goo is some sort of cleaner, I would not use. The "correct" type f cleaner is 99% pure Isopropyl Alcohol or a kit like this, > http://www.newegg.co...N82E16835100010
Are you using the new PSU?
Try removing the RAM and test.
I do think you would get lower temps by again cleaning up the CPU/heatsink and applying Arctic silver, (or similar) straight, no mixing with something else.
Great that you got the problem, so I will mark the topic as solved, but it will not be closed in case others may find the steps useful when attempting solving thair problems.
Good luck. sorted
So apart from the temps being a bit high, is the rig running OK now?
Good to hear the temps are better.
Try the mouse in a different port, try a different mouse, see if same results.
