What have you overclocked it too?
Is it stable for whatever 24/7?

Why am I getting these readings... the mobo moniter feature was shutting the pc down before I disabled the automatic limits. But its still showing warning as before of course
What the fork is the problem here?

Thats majorly too hot if its centigrade, infact your lucky its not dead at 90, we probobly have a HSF problem.
What fan and heatsink you got on it?

Is there anyway of telling if its damaged? Could I find out by checking speeds or something like that?
The problem is I think from when I installed the HS/F, I messsed up the pin things that go in the holes + the paste was not spead over the whole surface of the heatsink fan (only spread over 70% of surface)
So, today I resmoothed it (I know your meant to reapply new stuff, but its just for today) and my cpu temp is now a good 10 deg. C cooler. But still high I guess 43 idle 71 in game.
I got a thermaltake typhoon coming tomorrow and some arctic silver 5 so that should sort it out
Away with that piece of rubbish that came with the cpu

( I've read that you can get bad readings from these temperature sensors but they were just talking about when the sensor was not touching the core or something thus making an (lower, not higher) inacurate temp.
Is there a chance i've damaged my processor through a long period of 90degC?
Also, im not totally sure what does updating the drivers includes, i've updated the chipset chipset drivers or something, and the bios and the lan feature thing, but is there not another, main part to update? (thats all the updating I could find)

Here it is: Do this test to get a idea if the sensor is accurate or not, after the computer has been at idle for 15 minutes or so very carefully touch the base of the heat sink
40c to 49c = comfortably warm
50c to 55c = warm near hot have to pull away after 2 or 3 seconds
55c to 65c = hot need to pull away after 1 second
65c and above = burnt fingers
Report what you find back
You could also use a themometer and touch its probe to the base of the hs.
That should give you an indicator of how hot if its at 70 or above you wont be able to touch the heat sink at all.

With a little luck the typhoon will be here today
SO, you say if the temp really got to 91 gaming then the PC (i don't know maybe the BIOS) would have shut it off? (nothing to do with the mobo monitoring i mean)

I guess that maybe the sensor is 5 degC out or something also.
Im just wondering if this is important. Im getting a warning from the uGuru that the cpu woltage is wrong, I'll explain..
basically, there are different modes default, turbo, quiet.. ect when I have it on default (voltage seems lowest on this) the voltage flicks up and down, down being 1.20V/1.21V, this is when it goes warning.. The mobo has this EQ feature which fluctuates the voltages/ rpm according to temp and stuff. So as the Voltage goes down to 1.21 its warning
So, can this harm the computer?
Oh something I did not notice; the voltage numbers go down to 1.20/1.21 in normal just like they do in default except it only shows a warning when in default (the warning is shown ajaisent to the cpu volts, not cpu temps)
PS sorry to expain everything out so much but I thought you might not know exactly what I was saying.
