I just lost the 6 paragraph explanation I typed because my mouse is a POS, so this is the speed version because I don't feel like typing it all again.
When i shut down my comp last time it said that my CPU was running at 99 degrees celcius, and when I waited it started it again later it said it was at 55 but I could watch it climb .5 degrees until it got to about 84 degrees celcius.
When i got into the computer I downloaded speedfan, which told me that my CPU was at 42 degrees and my 2 cores were at 52 degrees. It never adjusted the speed of my fans though.
So I have the bios saying 84 and speedfan saying 52 degrees. Both are too hot and i'm trying to bring them down. Which reading should I trust more, and which methods would you suggest for bringing down the temp?
I'm about to go buy compressed air, a processor fan, and maybe a couple more fans to throw on my mobo somewhere, and some more thermal paste.
