I have an ASUS p6t deluxe v2, thors hammer cooler, two 3000 rpm 120mm fans going full blast on the cooler, 5 120mm case fans, a 200mm case fan, ambient are temp is 68 F, why are my core temps going through the roof at 30% processor load?!?! 100C before I could shut OCCT down. And it is not even overclocked! I could swear I smelled Intel BBQ... Bad paste job maybe?

Bad mounting job more likely.

YAR! Bad mounting it was. Problem solved. 100% processeor load for 60 minutes and I didn't go above 55 C.
