      Hi folks,

       

      Just putting together a new PC build. I am using the i5 CPU with the stock cooler and the cooling strip that is pre-applied. The motherboard is an ASUS P7P55D.

       

      I'm actually at a loss, the CPU feels fine and the bios is running fine, fan speed going at 1900 rpm. I wouldn't have thought there was a problem only for the temp reading in the BIOS. Could it be a sensor problem? Could some new thermal paste help?

       

      I'm really worried that my new CPU is already fried and am afraid to turn on the PC again.
