Default Processor overheating

Hello to everyone,
I am a new member on tech-forums.My name is Hammad and I am from Pakistan.
Basically I joined here to share a problem of my pc with you and I need help with it.Last month my motherboard died, and from the past 1 year I was having overheating problems with my pc, it used to shutdown suddenly or restart and then I used to get the error " Your CPU was previously shutdown due to a thermal event (overheating)"
Haven't had this error with the mobo that I got replaced with warranty.But my Processor is still overheating .... I changed my Heatsink fan with Asus VR Guard Cooler.That did not help the cause either and the temperature of processor is still around 65C at idle.I got a new mobo , new heatsink fan, new casing , new psu but nothing solved this problem so I want to know what should I do to solve this problem.I applied new thermal paste reseated the heatsink fan and everything I tried but to no avail.I am attaching a few pics here.I hope I can get a good advice regarding this problem.

Default Re: Processor overheating

this almost sounds to me like your processor is going out. is it possible for you to get a new processor?



btw, there are a few utilities you can use to check your temps other than the intel utility you are currently using. They are called Speedfan and MBM5 (aka: motherboard monitor 5)
