Hi guys, I hope someone could help me out. I installed realtemp to see my cpu temps because I'm having a very poor pc performance on games (fps drops and such) and on regular tasks aswell such as going through websites, etc..
So this shows up on my dual core E8600 3.33 GHz.


link in case it doesn't show: https://ibb.co/e6cUwF

So I'm very worried about this, what does it mean and I hope you can help me.
Thx in advance, thomas.

It means it's running at, or past, its TJ max temp. Which is not good. Notice the 0 distance to TJ max on that core. Which basically means you're having some serious cooling problems. Possibly the fan isn't working properly, or the heat sink is clogged with dust, or you've overclocked/overvolted it beyond your current cooling capacity, or any combination of those things.

Verified link as a screenshot of realtemp.

Log means the CPU is overheating and has created a log file for you to look at. With the CPU getting to that point, it is thermally throttling the CPU speed to lower levels, which is causing the behavior you are experiencing.

Ok so, sorry for the link I put on there, I didn't know how to make an image to show up. I'm playing diablo 3 btw.
So my fan is working excellent, going at normal speed, as always. On the other hand, I've never overclocked anything. So that leaves maybe dust inside it? My uncle tells me not to open it, what should I do?

Something is fishy in that screenshot.
-27°C as minimum on one core?
Also 91°C minimum on other core?

Take a look at your cooler. Probably you have a problem with it.

Hi guys, It's 7 am here, I'm going to work, but I wanted to see the temps.


This is what I'm getting at startup, btw I'm using an intel cooler, must be stock. I haven't changed it since I bought the computer like 10 years ago xD

Good hope you also RE-PASTED THE CPU after cleaning the cooler and before you Re-fitted the cooler
That way barring accidents it will last you for a few years
thermal paste was re applied if that's what you mean :)

edit: sorry, it was selfish of me not to upload an image after cleaning and repasting
