    the exact same thing happened to me and my went all the way up to 100 c. youll be fine just the heatsink out and put it back it to make sure all the pins are down and snapped. if one isnt snapped then the heatsink isnt making enough contact causing high temperatures
  2. oh ya dang that Crazy & its still working todayy?? & I got it back in now temps are way under 49c.. It not bad or anything on the cpu for that happening??

    yea it still works now its at 25 C idle and ive never seen it go over 40 C since i but the cpu cooler on right i dont thinks it bad but im not sure. glad to know it worked =)
  4. I did the same thing my first build. I was going to suggest cleaning off the old TIM and putting some new stuff on there but it looks like its going ok
  5. Read the 2 guides in my sig.
  6. Ya that good thanks for the heads up I hope my cpu is alright I didnt know if it burn it or anything like that when heatsink was not snapped in on one pin there thanks again
