Well, i just finished building my new computer and i have a problem. It is an e6850 dual core processor on an Abit IP35 Pro motherboard. I checked the bios and after about a minute on, the CPU reads at 79 degrees, with the shutdown being 85. What could be the problem?? Im fairly certin the heatsink and fan are on correctly..
Seems like you've got poor contact between HSF and CPU. You have to apply a Lot of pressure for the stock HSF to fit right. I knew about this problem before hand and purchased a better cooling HSF. Tuniq Tower 120
