I've got i7 920 for more than a year now,
Temp without any load (1-5%):
Temperature when system load is high easily goes up to 95C and over (then system shuts itself down)
I cleaned up the cooler (default Intel i7 cooler]1:
All fans are in the maximum speed, room temperature is no unusually high.
While cleaning the fan I noticed that thermal paste looked horrible, not even only a little stuck around, I wonder I messed it up while initial installation (can't remember whether I applied it or it came up with ready to use apply band-ish stuff).
Shall I clean up the thermal paste and reapply again? Can it be related with this?
Any other ideas? How can I decrease the temperature without buying a new aftermarket heat-sink or something like that.
I'm not quite sure how long it was like this, I think it gradually get hotter and hotter
