Reply to vince232 m 0 l laviniuc a c 106 à CPUs a b À AMD February 6, 2014 10:05:49 AM which means either the heatsink it's thoroughly placed on the cpu - you can check by trying to tilt it as i said, if it's seated ok it will move only a little bit - power off before trying! or the readings are wrong - either sensor or program used for reading but since all seem to be wrong... probably sensor.
