Will someone confirm what he is saying?
I have no clue regarding normal temps for things, but it is very possible that the CPU is overheating. It IS the fastest CPU on the market, and it was installed with the regular fan that came with it. I am not sure how effecient that is, and many recommended an aftermarket fan or even water cooling.
Is this the source of my problems, possibly?
Remember that this temp was of a UNDERCLOCKED CPU. So I am assuming that if I brought the CPU up back to it's normal clock frequencies, it would be even hotter.
