Overheating problem

So i'am having problems with my pc temerature.I downloaded fanspeed and ran the program.My cpu tems are very low around 35 C ,but the core temp is high and it goes up to 110 C and then the computer shuts off and restarts.I cleaned my computer,making sure everything is dust free and theres nothing clogged up,but still the temperatures tend to rise.If Im chrking my email or doing anything not processor demanding it runs at about 60C butmif I start multitasking it will eventually go up pretty high.When it comes to gaming ,i simply can't play anything for more than 2 or 3 mins due to high temps and them getting blue screen of death.So yeah,I was wondering if anyone knows what i can do to fix this problem?I am desperate right now ,because I cant use my computer for anything even remotely demanding.

P.S? imhavent touched the settings of SpeedFan,because i dont know how to configure it.

  3. Hi,Ive uploaded a few picutres to show you exactly what happens with my PC.

    Hope this helps.

    I can't upload them as separate images to the forum,because they won't show so I'm going to give a link to my photobucket library

    http://s1094.beta.photobucket.com/user/Hristos_Gyurov/library/

    Also in addition to this,when I place my hand behind the power supply fan,the air coming out is warm.
  4. I cant seem to configure SpeedFan too,I found a guide but,when I go to the advanced tab,I cant change the speed control from on AMBIENT to manually control.

    Please help,anyone!?!

    I really want to fix my problem,I thought people here would know what my problem is and tell me what to do by now,I have more than 70 views on my thread by now,and only one reply and I've already provided enough information I think,even pictures of my system.

    If there's more info you need I'd be glad to provide it.Its just that I need an answer if I need to replace a part that is faulty.I don't really wanna cough up money for someone else to fix it,when I can probably do it myself,if I knew what was wrong with it.
  5. Check the fans inside the case.
    let us know what you have for fans in there as I cont find much info on it. Ideally you'll have 1 in the side, 1 in the lower front, one on the cpu cooler, and one in the upper rear.

    Also, the pc's location makes a difference too, The hot air blowing out needs a way out and cool air needs a way in so putting the case in a cabinet is not a good idea you see.


  6. Only these 2 fans and the fan on the power supply.That's it.
