    First thing to do is to check your fans and see if they are running, also look for blockage, like tons of dust.

    95C for a CPU is very, very hot. Make sure your fans are working and turning. Check the RPM values. And also check for dust.

    Was it always this hot or did this just happen recently?

    OMG, turn it off and keep it off! That has to be the highest temp I've seen a 'live' cpu running, and still working :eek: :eek:

    Recheck the heatsink is fitted correctly and a reapplication of heat compund like artic silver or similar would not go amiss.
    As suggested recheck your fans are all working correctly.Most modern board have either bios or windows software to monitor them or try Motherboard monitor here:

    I figured it had something to do with my interenet connection, due to the fact that the computer kept killing itself alot when it was online.

    I checked my internet cable wire, and it looked pretty beaten up, so I went and got a new one, and now the computer works fine !!...thing is, if i played a game on my computer (the game requires 256mb ram and i have 256), and then went off it and did something else, the computer shuts down.

    I'm guessing its cos I need more ram?...thing is, I can easily avoid the problem, so its not annoying serious like last time lol :)

    "SEEMS" isn't the key word here.

    You still have a major problem. And if you keep running it that hot, you will have a bigger one ;) Depending on your elevation, that is above water boiling temperatures :eek:

    Hi. I am just curious about what kind of CPU is that you are using.

    I don't know if there would be any misreport of temp in your sensor software. I personally did not trust too much about the figures because I have came across on wrong temp measurement with the mobo and old display card hardware sensor before. However the difference is not too critical as yours.

    Per chance for you to have some handy heat sensor to try having a touch with the heat sink abve the CPU? If you have no experience before then forget what i am proposing as the result is meaningless if you don't know what i m saying.

    You have to open the computer up and check the CPU fan and heatsink. The heatsink should be attached correctly, the notch on the bottom needs to be matched to teh socket, and the fan needs to be spinning nicely. Most CPU's die at the temps you're running at.

    If its a sensor malfunction then you should be able to touch the battom of the CPU heatsink without burning your fingers, it should be slightly warm but not hot.
