It says 1 core 1 thread. Could a overheat do this ? because my cpu hit 90 degrees Celsius and shut off 2 days ago because of stock intel cooler. And yeah i put thermal paste on the cpu.

The Intel® stock HSF (heatsink/fan) comes with TIM preinstalled on it; did you clean it off?

Most of the time when I see over heating with our stock cooler it is because the HSF isnt seated well. Check this by reaching in and pull each of the twist clips straight up if you can than it wasnt locked in place and you want to reseat it and make sure it is seated well and locked in place.

And do a CMOS reset. The BIOS may have automatically disabled 1 core to save it from overheating.

Yeah, but the weird thing is that it only deactivated the core 2 days after the overheat. It actually deactivated the core after i activated windows :(  i dont get this !
