    Hi,Im using PC Wizard to see if I can overclock my processor,but u know what?
    My CPU temperature is 201 C! is that normal if I havent overclocked?

    How close is your processor to your psu..my friend had that same problem he just opened up the side case and put a normal fan there lol maybe a bit lud but it worked...

    It has nothing to do with the case its the position of the cpu socket on the motherboard.

    its just a bunk reading from a crappy onboard sensor. ignore it. It would however, be good to check it by feeling the side of the heatsink, and as long as that isnt hot, it is fine. ;)

    Its misreading...the max temp before failure on them is 85C I believe. If it was 200, you would have a dead CPU.

    What'd be cool is if they made pins and all other pieces of processors, or coated them with, or had shells, made out of a really high-heat-tolerance material, so heating wouldn't be a factor. I mean 85C can burn you but it's not that bad. If you could do that, we could either have a new generation of CPU's about 5x as fast or be overclocking them about that high. That'd be awesome, I think that should be the way of the future, not new generations of technology that make them faster, but a simple physical technology that lets them run hotter, or even better, both.

    Well why not just more powerful power supply's with more current flowing through the hardware to make up for lost flow through heat?
