I bought an E7600 processor about 4 months ago and installed it. I installed a utility given along with my motherboard (Asus P5Q SE PLUS) that measures the temperature of the CPU. When idle it measures the temperature around 45 C. When I open a game or any other heavy application the temperature reaches 95 C! I' ve checked many times if the fan is correctly installed on the CPU. I've built my PC on my own and updated it many times the last 6 years. I've never had a problem like this before. I run the Intel Processor ID utility about a month ago and it measured the speed for both cores 3.06. Today I run it again and it's 1.59. Is it damaged from the heat or there's something else wrong? If it was damaged wouldn't it stop working completely? Microsoft's win7 Experience Index rating, rates the CPU the same as before, but I don't trust microsoft...
