    i7 930 CPU seems to be running VERY hot


      I've had this PC since 2011 or so and have never really bothered to check the temperatures of my PC hardware till now.  Below is some info I have on my PC.  If there is anything else I should add, please let me know.  I've searched around and it seems like my CPU is running very hot.  I do a lot of gaming and can usually hear my PC's fans working a lot harder during these times.  I recently applied some new thermal paste (arctic silver ceramic) to see if it would help lower the temperature of my CPU.  I'm not sure if it really helped and I heard there was a break in period, but even then, it seems like my CPU is running very hot.  Currently it seems like the 4 cores are idling around 70c.  When I'm gaming it's maxed out around 100c.  It seems like when idle it should be at 40c or so?  I'm not sure if my heatsink may not be working propery or what's going on.  When restarting my PC at times, I do get an error that my CPU temperatures is high and that I need to press F1 to continue.  Just looking for any help as it seems like my PC is running much slower compared to when I had first build it 5 years ago.
