    CPU Temp on Q8200


      I am currently trying to replace my old CPU, a pentium D, with the Quad 8200. My bios have been updated to support the 45nm.

      Comp specs:

      Pentium D 3.2 ghz (installed at the moment)
      3 GB Ram 
      Antec Tru Power Trio 650 Watt  
      Abit Fatal1ty FP-IN9 SLI

      OS- Windows 7 Home Premium

      The computer was working up until I installed the Q8200 with windows 7. The problem is with the CPU temp reaching up to 92 degrees. This seems much to high for it and triggers the mobo cpu temp alarm. When I reinstalled the old cpu the same alarm goes off, this creeps slowly up and I cut it off at 80 degrees to prevent damage. I am only able to get into the bios screen and do not wish to linger to long beause of high temps. If allowed to continue windows starts normally, but when it should reach the desktop load screen it BSOD, dumps memory, and restarts. I am using Antec Formula 5 silver thermal compound if thats any help. Heatsink is unknown but large enough to have handled the heat before. Have tried using the stock cpu fan but still no luck. Not sure if this is a problem with the bios or something else. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.


      Thanks ahead for any help.
