Super high CPU temp!

Last response: in CPUs

Its been 2 weeks since my comp started randomly shutting down without any warning (like someone pulled the plug from the wall)!
But 2 days ago i started HW monitor just to check out some stuff when i noticed the 90 C temperature.

Opened up the case and came to know the CPU stock cooler fan is throwing out cold air :| Touched the CPU and it was damn hot..

I tried cleaning the heat-sink but it still didn't help.....temp rises to around 90 C in just 4-5 minutes after turning on the PC...

Googled a bit and its all buy a new heat-sink/thermal compound/case with more fans etc etc and I'm damn confused on what to buy

Plus last week was diwali(an Indian fest) and i blew all my money in shopping etc and my budget is really tight

So...Any suggestions?

Thank you!

1. Try re-seating the CPU and heat sink properly. Did you do some cleaning or something recently?

2. Get a Thermal paste and apply it and see if the temps drop.

3. Get a CPU Cooler.

heat is not being transfered from your cpu to the heatsink, maybe the clamps are damaged.
