65c way too hot. What core does this CPU have? Northwood or Prescott. What is its original clock speed?

Im not sure. Do you want me to attach his DxDiag. He doesnt no wot it is. Ive ran him through and got him to install EVEREST liek CPU-Z he also says theres no GPU Temperature on there

Yes i thought it was very hot. He says his PC sounded very loud from the fan but its only 30 RPM more than mine and mines not that loud.

Thanks

65C is fine....if you're cooking egg's.

Make sure that the heat sink is attached fully and that there is good contact with the CPU. If everything is fine there, I would take the heatsink off and re-apply some good thermal paste.

Its a Northwood core. Try to clean out any just in the heatsink/fan with an air can. Maybe some Artic Silver 5 and a neew heatsink/fan combo will bring that temperature down.

I would say first try to reapply the thermal paste and clean the heat sink. Also if the fan is making noise it might be because the ball bearing is damaged and therefore the fan might be going slower than normal(Of course it could just be a loud fan). If this does not help, than getting a better heat sink and fan is an option but you could also try and slightly down clock the CPU.

Ya, if your using the default fan that came with the processor then it should work if you applied its thermal paste. Though, all stock fans SUCK usually... heres what I would recommend:
Zalman 9500
or something better...
Arctic Silver 5
