160 degrees Fahrenheit = 71.1111111 degrees Celsius

 

OUCH. way too hot for me, you should be aiming for 55C load. Is that an idle or load reading? I think you might want to reseat that heatsink and fan. It's probably not making good contact. You used some good paste too, right?

 

*ppssst* I recommend you switch that system off an reseat ASAP

yea. hopefully you wont get this post cause the system will be OFF and you will be trying to reseat it.

 

search these forums for many many threads about how to make sure you are doing everything right to cool your cpu.

 

paste, good tight fit, working fan, etc.. report back!
