Recently I'm running my AMD Phenom II X4 965 at almost 3.7 ghz wich went pretty good, but after a while the CPU Cores went constantly at full power.. Even when I'm at idle! Usually the cores were at 50% (like 1.8 ghz), but now they're all running at 3.7 at all times.. Temperatures got real high up to 66 degrees celcius when playing BF3 at ultra.
