Why someone using Word, or browsing the internet, would want Overclock such a processor is beyond me. But judging by that ridiculous array of hardware spec, I'm going to just assume that you have.

58 Degrees Celsius is a very high temperature for a processor like that, doing such pathetic tasks. I'm inclined to think that you've either not applied any thermal paste, or you've done it badly. What socket is the e6600? Because if it's a 775, there's a **** good chance that you've not seated the heatsink and fan correctly.

found out what it was, the fan on top of the heat sink was spinning but only at half the speed it should. replaced it an its fine, running at 36 - 37 deg's now.
