My System Specs


Hi- 95 is definitely too high, but there are a couple of thigns to consider- there is setting time for thermal compund so temps will drop a little over the coming week- also temp sesnors can be off and give inaccurate readings, and while prime 95 is a good stress tester, it puts a higher load on the CPU than just about anything you'll run in day to day use. That said, try another temp program like real temp just for kicks- see what it says under load bu tdon't run it too long if they're still 95. Then I'd try to reseat the heatsink- maybe use a little more compound this time and be very sure the pins are in the mobo right- they can be tricky and deceptive little buggers. Then try testing again.
