I currently have a computer that never had problems until a bit ago when i got a new program and it runs at 100% usage for about 2.5-3 hours. I then noticed it is idling at 43 celsius and max out at 70ish. I know this is very hot cannot figuring out why its getting that hot i mean i know its running really hard so i expect it but whats the week point. Also fan speed is set to high would disabling cool n quiet in bios help? or adjusting thermal cycling? or is it hardware here is the machine. I have another pc in same room and more powerful stock cooler idles at 23 max is like 49. Added better cooling 5 120mm fans and installed new thermal paste.

Thanks. plus whats rig worth when i get it fixed?
shouldnt need better stock should be fine like i said i am running a much faster machine 6 core 3.2ghz and never above 48 thats with a more powerful card to and same case but i beleive the only option is a different cpu cooler. thanks
No, a stock cooler would not be fine with that overclock either, why would you think that?
Stock speed is 2.5ghz for that processor so get a cooler that can handle the heat or drop your OC is all I can recommend.
completely clean went over all of them and cleaned when i put new thermal paste on it the only thing i can think of is it does need new cpu cooler that one should be working a lot better though i dont understand it.
