Intel CPU Overheating

Hi
I am having the following configuration
My Specs
MoBo - Intel DP55WB
CPU - Intel i5 760
CPU Cooler - Cooler Master Hyper 101
RAM - Transcend 4GBx1 DDR3
GC - Nvidia GTX460
HDD - Seagate 1.25TB


Few days ago my stock cpu cooler's fan blade broke by accident and was overheating so I purchased after quite some research the above said cooler. But now my cpu temp is fluctuating(from 30 to 70oC) even if I dont use the system, Kindly assist me with the problem. Ask any details and I shall provide without much time loss. I am extremely dependent on my Desktop. Also this temp. fluctuation is not even all throughout my cpu cores. When one core is at 30oC other core strikes 70oC. When I play games such as Splintercell Blacklist at lowest graphics it gets stuck up for sometime and then freezes after which I have to do a Ctrl+Alt+Del.

I used RealTemp s/w to watch the cpu temp. But the weird thing was even after the fan blade was broken my cpu temp went even upto 20oC.

    That cooler uses the stock Intel style push-pins. It's very likely one or more of the push-pins isn't fully seated. 70c is a safe load temp, but if your CPU is hitting that temp at idle your cooler isn't installed correctly. Did you use new thermal paste?

    Hi Shortstuff_mt
    Thanks for replying. And yes I used new thermal paste that came with the packaging. Saddest part is even with blade broken and puch pin broken stock cooler the temperature was never this much fluctuating or high.
  3. Actually solved it...The issue was I plugged in the temperature sensor cable in reverse manner...
