Cpu high temperature

hi to all
I've got a qx6850 extreme CPU from Intel
I've got the "sensors view" to watch the CPU temperature and as i can see it it's always 60-63 degree Celsius at idle while playing games it's 70 and when playing brothers in arms hell's highway it's 72 and i can hear the cpu fan speeding up trying to cool down the processor anyway i checked the temperature of the CPU as well in the bios and it's 25 degree Celsius such a big difference i think the first temperature is the right one and if it is is that safe temperature if not what I'm supposed to do in the bios i disabled the fan control speed and as soon i pressed yes to apply the change i could hear the fan speeding it's too loud and windows load up i checked the temperature it was 56 and the fan speed is like 4000 rpm i went back to bios to set the default settings but b4 i do it i checked the CPU temp in the bios and it was 33 :) so in the bios with default settings the CPU temp is 25 with speeding the fan it's 33 :) dats funny but with sensors view with default settings(fan speed 1000 Rpm) it's 60 idle with speeding up the fan (4000 rpm ) its 56 !!!! what do u guys should i change the CPU fan it's only 6 month old should i take back to intel for replacements

  1. Check the push pins on the heatsink to be sure they haven't come loose.

    Check the core temps with Core Temp. If they are still high get a heatsink with a backplate.
  2. Also check the heat sink is still seated properly and the thermal paste or tape is ok.
