Assembled my pc for the first time. Booted right up into bios with no issues. everything seems in order accept the CPU temp is sitting at 91 degrees. Isn't this too hot for just running bios?
I am running an asrock motherboard with the 785g chipset and a AMD Athlon II X3 425 Rana 2.7GHz CPU. I used the thermal compound that was already on the included heatsink. When I installed the heatsink, I made sure I pressed down and twisted slightly (very) side to side.

Yes way to hot!
Did you make sure the surface was clean before installing the compound? Have you tried any other compound such as AS5? And is the processor installed in the socket perfectly? Also did you remove any plastic or sticker that may have been on the bottom of the heatsink?
didn't clean it but did remove all plastic. The CPU did drop in place perfectly and I made sure it was in the right way.
crap, I guess I have to pull it off and scrape off the thermal compound and apply some AS5 then?
