Hello,
At full load SpeedFan 4.0 reports my core temperatures as 100C, 93C, 90C and 92C. Is it dangerous to keep running it that way?

If those are accurate temps - yes. Your CPU should be throttling down to keep itself from burning up.
What kind of idle temps are you seeing?
Double check that SpeedFan is giving you accurate reading. Install HWMonitor and compare readings.

Ya do what WR2 said. I think it could be you need a new TIM. Your old one may have dried up or you may not have applied at all.

Thanks, I ended up putting in a new heatsink (Zalman CNPS9900A Led). It dropped the idle temps an average of 8C and the full throttle temps about 45C). So much for the standard Intel heatsink.
