So I was given this pc to repair because it was shutting down. It resulted the CPU was over-heating (90+ centigrade). I replaced the TIM with AS 5, now the CPU is idling at 53 degrees and loads at 68 degrees. Which I think is too hot for stock clocks and speeds, even though it's on the stock cooler. I replaced TIM again, but I'm sure I did a good job because it's not my first time... I checked the bios to make sure everything is really at stock, and even put the voltage on "power saving" for good measure. This CPU has always run warm. It was bought used, and presumably the previous owner overclocked it heavily... It's a 5000 Black Edition. Could the over-clocking and over-volting by the previous owner have damaged this CPU so that it runs hot permanently now?
