I agree with martin, don't fear the technology. resetting a cpu heatsink is one of the easiest things to do and if you are that much of a doofus then you shouldn't even post here. Run, do not walk to your nearest computer service center.

Make sure your CPU heatsink fan is working. A friend's PC temps went up just like yours and the stock fan had died.

Easy trick for that... heat up the cpu for an hour... then remove the heat-sink-fan carefully by twisting slowly instead of pulling. Oringinal posts here about having someone do it or have someone SHOW you how to do it should be considered 1st. Makes no sense to ruin a perfectly good computer making rookie mistakes. Point of reference: Friend googled replacing the TIM and came home with thermal epoxy instead... I don't have to finish that story.

I'm gonna bet money that HSF is glued to that cpu after 2 years.

Lol, point taken. I assume that people who have a computer would know how to use search engines to get info on their own and be capable of going to a brick and mortar service center for advice. Unfortunately you cannot stop people from making mistakes 100% of the time, I call it the "school of hard knocks" Apologies to the OP for not going into more detail.
