    I currently have an i3 dual core processor, and it is running at 90+ degrees Celsius, yes Celsius. It is connected to a cpu fan and a heat sink, but is still at 90+ degrees Celsius. I have tried reinstalling the fan, heat sink, and cpu, but none worked. I could use some help

    There is insufficient information in your post to assist you
    1. Which i3
    2. What computer motherboard and full make and model of computer if branded
    3. Where is the temp reading from please
    4. Are air flow vents in case clear as of course cpu fan must have cool air to draw in
    5. Send paste of the results of this please

    i3 for instance
    Core i3-3220 28 to 35°C (Idle) 50 to 60°C (Normal) 65°C MAX
    other i3 go to 72Max
    if yours really was 90+ it would most likely have gone to low speed - throttled to protect itself and if it reached 95 + it would have shut down

    6. Is it overclocked
