Default Why is my Intel CPU Overheating?

HardOCP got this send it: "We run a PC repair shop. The other day one of our customers brought his PC in and says it keeps rebooting and the CPU temperature is very high. He told us he has always built his own PCs and that he knows what heís doing, yet he canít figure out what is wrong."

Maybe if he had used a second HSF on that top vent as well then his CPU wouldn't be getting so hot...

That's obviously adhesive paste, to better hold the HSF to the side of the case once mounted....
