Current temps are at 110 Degree's Celsius. IDLE. This is underclocked from 2.6 to 1.8Ghz. I am using a stock cooler on the athlon II x4 620. I was wondering what kind of temps SHOULD I have? Just bought http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... , Any other ideas on solutions? The case temp is about 28 Degrees Celsius.

At those temps, it should be burning its way throught the mobo. 230F

You must have a bad temp. sensor or the cpu voltage is sky high, should be 1.25/1.4v depending on the chip and load. Also check heatsink is fitted correctly.

People have hit 3.2Ghz with no voltage changes.

+1 bad cencor, you can check thermal paste to be sure

Your CPU would shut down long before 110 C. Try Core Temp. If the results are the same you have a bad thermal sensor.

Core Temp says TJ. Max 70 Celsius and 41 Degrees celsius on Core #0. Doesnt tell me heat of other cores for some reason. It HAS overheated, multiple times. That is why I underclocked it from 2.6 to 1.8Ghz. Voltage is stock, 1.2v per Core temp., switching coolers tommorow, and will check the thermal paste then :) . Thanks for the posts.

Update for those who want to know: My CPU now stays under 48C at all times, even during stress testing (8 hours straight). Thanks for the input guys!
