Ok, I have an I5-2500 running on my computer. A few days ago, all of a suden, the temps started to climb for no apparent reason, around 25-30% load, untill the hit 70 and were still climbing. It was then the safteys kicked on, turned everthing off. I then let it cool down, botted to bios, and then it did the same thing.
I have since re-seated everything, reapplied thermal paste and it has getten a bit better, sitting at around 51-55 at bios. It has a stock cooler on it, no overclocking and has two case fans, one directly above and one directly to the side. Does anyone have any advise?
If the sensors are OK, i think you should buy a better cooler, and if no results, go to warranty
That`s my opinion
