strange problem need help!

So my computer keeps shutting down randomly and im wondering why it is doing this(it also shuts down when im in BIOS) and then i decided to check the temperatures and when i look my CPU(E6600) is AT 90C!


Now i shut down let it cool off and then i start my computer, i go back into BIOS monitor system to look at the temps, it reads now 65C which is still abnormally high, but i keep watching and i notice that the temperature starts rising by 1C slowly upward and wont stop, i watch it go from 65C to 94C before i finally shut it down.

I bought the E6600 from Newegg and have already RMA'd it once because i got Thermal paste on the bottom of the CPU by accident and now i i think i might have to RMA it again but to INTEL Corp.


If there is any solution it will be most welcome......

  1. Yes, using the Stock Intel HS,

    (EDIT)
    it appears your right upon returning to problem i noticed one of the pins on the HS was broken so the HS wasn't fully on when pressing down(with my finger on the HS ) i watch the temps fall down to 50C and when i remove the pressure it starts rising again thanks for the help.
