Hi, I am having a problem with my CPU temp that I cannot solve and need some help with.
Each day that I start my PC, after about 20 mins the CPU temp rises very slowly from 40C to 55C even though there is no heavy CPU processing. If I then play a game the CPU temp rises to 65C. Note that the CPU does not overheat and cause a PC shutdown.
If I restart my system the CPU temp reaches 40C and stays there whilst the PC is idle and stays at this temp for hours. If I then play a game the CPU temp never rises above 50C.
It does this consistenty every day I use the PC and have no idea why.
My PC is: - ASRock P45R2000 motherboard - Intel Q9650 overclocked from 3 to 3.6 Ghz - Arctic Cooling Freezer Xtreme v2 CPU Cooler - MSI Nvidia GTX275 Video Card - Creative SB X-Fi Sound Card
As far as I know the CPU has been seated correctly in the motherboard with the correct amount of arctic silver. This is the 5th PC that I have built and so know a little about these things.
Any ideas? Is this a BIOS, Motherboard or CPU Issue?
Thanks for your time.

Hi, I will try a reinstall of the CPU in the next few days.
I am using an ASRock Utility to measure the temp.
