looking inside the pc now and the cpu + heatsink are plastered in dust lol
I asked you that already. Oh well, I'll bet that's your problem. Get a can of compressed air and blow out the heatsink.

Over time, it will cause your CPU to slowly burn out causing your CPU's performance to deteriorate is my understanding.

I suppose if its running hotter,it could cause premature failure of the chip/board too.

If your overheating yes, it could potentially cause lag while gaming and doing cpu intensive tasks. Also 1.4v is mediocre for an OVERCLOCKED 65nm cpu. I bet the previous owner didn't bother to clean it out and instead bumped the voltage to stable the system.

Exactly as I thought, was just that the previous owner neglected the system. Clean everything out? Hows it running now?

EDIT: Also welcome to TPU! :)

im sorry but 1.4V is WAY too high for stock speeds, you should be looking at around 1.2-1.3V for stock (dependant on VID).

Try lowering that core voltage, I use 1.408 for 3.6Ghz nevermind stock! :eek:

I can achieve stock @ 1.2V, so try 1.25 - if post fails bump it up a notch, like 1.275 or something.

My G0 Q6600 packet reads 1.35V as max volt

First try latest RealTemp 2.90 RC9 and don't worry if you'll see 5°C more. :)
Second try to lower your Vcore as those guys told you already.
Third idle temp means nothing, try a load with prime95 Small FTTs and put a screenshot.

woah, so stock coolers = bad idea for full load work! Id recommend an aftermarket HSF mate, something like the Xigmatek HDT-S1283 or the TRUE.
