wait, you are using windows 7 for it? you need to download EVGA E-LEET or CPU-Z. or the task manager i suppose.

it sounds like something, not necessarily a virus is either pushing the cpu to load, or the temperature sensing is wrong. those temps are normal for load? they seem a bit high for load. try rebooting the computer, that is the first step (if you havent already).

hmmm, that is very strange, there isnt a bug that i know of that makes the i7 do this. have you tried putting everything at stock speeds and updating what you are using to read the temperatures?

did you just download windows 7? if so, it seems like its a registry error and you might need to re format.

to be honest, your problem is a unique one. it doesnt sound like a virus though. the best advice i can give you is keep asking around or call microsoft, it seems like a registry error. im glad if i was any help though :)
