i had a desktop with
phenom 2 940 , schte zipang cooler 140mmfan
4 gb ram
in a aerocool cube case with 480 watt psu, one intake fan
mainboard is gigabyte ma78gm s2h

i changed phenom 2 940, hd4850 with x2 5600+ and 2600 pro
changed psu with asus 400watt psu

i changed the configuration because it was much more power consuming and the processor was running at 40-50c which i think is high. I was not playing any games anymore so i did not need that 940 and 4850

after installing, the processor temp was around 30-40c for a while than after working 1 hour it slowly increased to 90c at which point i shut down
i reinstalled the processor and the heatsink but the results are the same
I used the same configuration for a long time and the temp never reached 60c.

i searched the net. but can not find any solution

now i have two possibility ,
-processor change (downgrade)may need bios update (maybe downgrade)
- psu was repaired at some point, maybe the fan blows inside the case because of some idiot assembling wrong.
- 5600+ processor was in some drawer , maybe it is broken somehow

what else may be the reason for this increase in temp . i need ideas

I'll bet you didn't apply any thermal paste to the CPU when you installed it.

OK, apologies. stupid question, but the CPU fan is working, right?

yes working
one more thing
i try to touch mobo near the processor , it is not that hot
February 26, 2010 5:30:07 AM

solved ( imho)
changed the cooler with stock and same thing
changed the processor , fan and temp ok

since mobo did not feel very hot touching, It seems a temp reporting problem with the amd x2 5600+ . i am sending it for service
i just want to know may a problem like that appear only 1 hour of use , and take into account that this same processor(5600) worked flawless for at least a year.

It seems strange that the problem only appeared after an hour's use, if indeed it is a faulty measurement. Unless of course the thermal diode stopped working properly.
