AMD Phenom 9850 x4 running hot

Recommended Posts

I am have an AMD Phenom 9850x4 black edition processor that started running hot earlier this week. When i first got the CPU it would idle around 37C and 47-50 with a full load. Earlier this week i noticed that the CPU would idle around 47C. Today i noticed that its idling around 58-60C. So I shut the computer down. My house has AC, which is set at 70F. Is this a sign that the CPU is going bad? Any help would be appreciated?

i use AS5. I have tried every way possible, from a little dot to using it as paint. i even purchased a corsair H50, and that didn't even do a thing. i never overclock my computer, so everything is stock.

If you have a H50 and are not getting better temps than the standard cooler then something is not right. Can you post a picture of your PC with the side panel off? Would make it easy to see any major problem (like fans not plugged in!). Could be the temp sensor going way off. Try a different program to view temps.
