Hi everyone, when i turn my pc on my CPU is already at 60C, in games it reaches 100C, and basic operations is at 70C, my CPU is a e6750 (not overclocked), i gotta 5 fans (GPU, PSU, CPU, and additional 2 fans).
Is the sensor damaged or what?
Sorry for my bad English, i'm portuguese.

Your thermal paste is most likely dried up, you should replace it.

Did you installed the Heatsink firmly? connect the CPU heatsink fan correctly? is it spinning?

if its running at those temps you did NOT install the HSF correctly

e6750 = 65w cpu = efficient

thermal paste doesn't really dry up as such as at high temps it softens up usually and even then its moulded in the right efficient shape, its only when you remove the hsf where you should replace that old thermal paste

Check everything over but it's likely a bad sensor or faulty temp monitoring software. That chip tops out at 72C, if it's truely up around 100 you would have killed it by now. I also question why the overheating failsafe is seemingly turned off...

It isn´t turned off, is just set to 110C, and that temperature it never reaches (just when i try to overclock it)
