    A stress test will push it to the limit, you will find most games and programs wont.

    Try this

    Download and install hwmonitor
    and see what the temps etc are. Download the 1.17 setup, english on the righthand side.
    ....take a reading when PC Idle then put is under heavy load like maybe a game for awhile CPU(core) and GPU Video card and post them. (Just a screenshot of results is fine)

    take another reading post the results

    no it was like this when i bought it. People here in my country don't sell quality stuff. I don't game all the time though 2 hours tops a day unless games i've been waiting for are out

    there's like a 0.1 sec freeze every 3 minutes or so on Crysis and GTA 4. Every other games are fine mass effect 2, black ops etc.

    You could get another heatsink cooler for it or try replacing the thermal paste and also get a can of compressed air and blow out the heatsink....if it is clogged with dust.....I myself would want to get the temps down

    The max thermal spec for that cpu is around 71C so IF your reading of 92C is correct, then you have a problem.

    Here is what I would do;
    1 Since this is 2yrs old, pull the hsf off and clean ALL parts with 99% or 91% alcohol
    2 Apply fresh thermal compound such as arctic silver or other compound
    3 Reinstall the hsf
    4 Make sure you have all cables, wires, etc tied up and out of the way so you can get good airflow through the case

    Note for intel type cpus, I always recommend pulling the motherboard to R&R a hsf. This is for two reasons;
    1 With the board out of the case, you can check the 4 pushpins to make sure they are fully engaged
    2 You need to push pretty hard on the board to seat the pushpins and I dislike having to push so hard on the board when it is supported on standoffs.

    re applied the thermal paste and it's running at 43c idle but it still reaches about 100c BUT before it was underclocking itself to prevent overheating but now when i ran a stress test it isn't underclocking itself it's running at a constant stock speed
    Edit: It was a really low quality thermal paste but probably the only i could find in a place like here
