Temps going to 105 Degrees

For some reason, every now and then my temperatures will go to 105 degrees, and each core will be on 100%. If I run maxprime for an hour, my temperatures go to around 51-53 degrees. So I know it's not a hardware problem.

What do you think is causing this? I have used rkill to kill any malware processes and it doesn't find any to kill.

    Have you already tried to reattach the cooler again? Take it out, clean it, and make sure it is under pressure and well tighten. Is it only a spike of 105 degrees or does it stay for a while?

    Well maybe the temperature sensor is a faulty one....Maybe it is giving a faulty reading in either of the cases.

    Yeah, try using the mb software to read the temps, aida64, HWmonitor, and see if they all give you that spike

    I can't use my PC, literally it's that slow when the temps go that high...
