    i7-3970x overheating - not over clocked, recommended stock heatsink and cooler


      Hi folks,


      According to Intel Desktop Utilities my CPU is fairly routinely hitting over 90 degrees. I've stripped the thermal paste and reapplied carefully twice, but still the same thing. The fan goes crazy and the temperatures still skyrocket.


      It's in a DX79SR - this shouldn't be happening, right?
