When I run Prime95 on my machine, it gets really hot really quick. hovering near 100 on 2 of the 4 cpus and close to 95 on the other 2.
Everything is stock on the machine. The case is open also. Room temp is about 75F.
My exact specs are here
Is there anything I can do. I do not wish to necessarily overclock, but i got a couple of bluescreens last week due to overheating doing normal work (programming using visual studio and some 3rd party).
At rest machine runs at about 45F.
I dont know what other information i need to give to help people understand my problem.
Good combo on the heatsink and thermal paste,you should be happy after the install. Removing the motherboard is a pain but all good heatsinks require a back plate. The 212 is a pretty easy fan to install and in some ways easier than fighting with the ridiculous push pin method that Intel refuses to improve.
