Intel i5 Overheating

Hello,

Lately I have been sensing my PC is becoming slower and slower, and today it started shutting down randomly after being powered on (about 15 minutes into operation) I installed a hardware temperate software and I believe the problem is in my CPU as both cores are reaching a temperature of 105 Celsius

I have attached an image below from the heat monitor I can see two very high temperatures, the CPU and my Gigabyte TMPIN2 temperature ( though I do not really understand what this is)

What is usually the best solution to proceed? Checking this website I have seen most have recommended placing a new thermal paste, I will start with that but could it be also a motherboard issue? (due to that TMPIN2 temperature?)




Thank you for reading!

CRAZY temperatures, you need to take action ASAP to avoid killing your chip.

1. If you haven't already, use a can of compressed air or something similar to clean dust out of your CPU heatsink and your PC in general.
2. How long has it been since you've applied thermal paste? You're right, reapplication would definitely help.
3. If you want to improve the lifespan of your parts you could get an aftermarket cooler that is much better than the standard cooler. I recommend the Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO. Cheap and effective, best in it's price bracket.

If the motherboard is overheating, it's likely due to the heat of your CPU.

Check to make sure the stock cooler is still seated good. I had this exact same issue where my PC got jarred around and knocked the cooler loose enough to not be making solid contact. However if that does not work, then I would highly recommend cleaning the dust out and reapplying thermal paste. To do that you can take a cloth and rubbing alcohol (dabbing the cloth in the alcohol) and rubbing the CPU and heatsink to clean off the paste.


I would also highly advise investing in a Hyper 212 Evo or similar Cooler Master cooler. You can't beat them in the price range.

1.5V for the +12V? Fan running so slow at such high temperature of CPU? Core temperature higher than CPU? Something wrong with your PC, I recommend you to check with it at a local PC store.

umm.. @JOOK-D see his picture again and see that his fans are running very slow... Hence the airflow is not enough to cool down the PC... This is like to slightly spin the fan with hand... Seriously man get the Cooler-Master 212 Evo or say goodbye to your CPU... Cleaning heatsink, replacing thermal paste, cleaning the cabinet, changing the cooler.... If you have done all this options and still your PC is heating up check in your BIOS if accidentally the PC was overclocked...(maybe or maybe not)... If it was overclocked then change the settings back to normal ASAP....

What? Why are you questioning what I suggested and the suggesting the same things to solve it? Haha.
