  • Need help crazy heat problems

    CPU: Intel i 7 860 @ 2.80GHz
    Mother board: Biostar TH55XE
    Memory : Corsair DDR3 1600MHz 4GB x 4
    Graphic card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 ti

    am having major problem with my cpu heat, idle is around 60c, and can goes up to 99c when playing games. Just cleaned the fan and everything and nothing changed. Thermal looks like dry out.

    plan to buy a Phanteks PH TC14PE heatsink. does it fit in my mother board? will it decrease the temp? is there something wrong with the cpu?

    Did you re-apply thermal paste?

    Yes that cooler will drop temps and it will fit your motherboard. But make sure your case has enough room for it and the RAM doesn't have any high-profile heatsinks on it.

      Invest in some higher quality thermal paste. Only a few dollars more expensive, but will go a long way. If possible add water cooling or a better heatsink. If dust is a problem you can buy some fan filters to decrease the amount of dust getting in.
