    My i5-2500 is reporting temperatures that are much higher than they should be, and are, and subsequently the processor hard shuts off.


      My i5-2500 managed to "go" from 30 degrees celsius to 80 degrees celsius while running high ift prime95 in 2 minutes. These figures are gotten directly from hwmonitor. This is impossible, because I have verified that the cpu fan and case fans are working fine and are attached correctly. When the processor gets to 91 degrees, the monitor and speakers fizzle and I assume the processor just shuts off. This is a problem, because I cannot RMA it. I do not have the box, nor do I have the means to access the serial numbers on the processor. Any suggestions?
