I just built myself a new rig, prior to the build I had very good stability, never crashed or anything remotely like that. When I built this new rig however my stability went down hill with the same CPU and the same cooling device (stock heatsink/fan). I pulled up speedfan to check my temps and here is how they read.

CPU Usage: 1.7%

System: 35C
CPU: 38C
AUX: 31C
Core: 101C

What is up with the core temp!? When I jump into BFBC2 it will jump up to 115C which seems a little rediculous. I have tried cleaning and reapply the thermal compound, I am unfamiliar with this one though, it is Ceramique from Arctic Silver.

My Rig:
ASRock A785GXH/128M
Phenom 9600 x4 2.3GHz
ATI Radeon HD 3600 PCIe x2
6GB DDR2 1066
1TB
320GB x2
650W Power Supply

How much of the same hardware are you using? and what software are you using to monitor it? Im assuming the core temp means GPU temp, which is your video card. I can think of 2 things causing that to overheat off the top of my head though there are others A: Not getting enough power. I see you have a 650 watt PSU which in theory should pack enough power, though depending on the brand and how much amperage it pulls out, combined with any other hardware your running (multiple hard drives etc.) May be the cause or B: improper airflow to the graphics card causing a overheat.

So, lets start with question one, what kind of PSU are you running? Brand, and how much amperage on the +12v rails. and How much hardware are you running, your post was kind of vague, looks like 3 hard drives and 6 gigs of ram? any card readers? and how many optical drives?

Second, how is the air flow in your case setup? is there a intake fan blowing in the front of the case and exhaust in the back, without anything blocking airflow from getting to the video card? any other accessory cards underneath/above the video card that would be blocking airflow, or giving out heat that would be causing the video card to overheat?

I helped a friend build a new pc recently and everything looked great, but would blue screen every now and then. We checked his temps and they were similar to yours. Are you getting any errors or freezing?
We found that one of the pins holding the heatsink to the CPU wasn't seated properly. Once we fixed that, everything went back to normal and we haven't had a problem since. A lot of people have a hard time with those OEM fans, although AMD seems to have better fans than Intel.

I was using Speedfan and the core temp should be in reference to the CPU core temp. I have used a few different programs including Speedfan and AMD Overdrive all are reading 99-105 at idle which seems more than just a little high. I haven't received any BSoDs or freezing, just getting totally shut down. I have used most of the components from the other computer that was 100% stable, including the RAM, CPU, Heatsink, CPU fan, and hard drive(after format). I am running Windows 7 Pro X64 by the way.

You listed your CPU temp as 38C there-so you have 2 different CPU temp readings?

CPU Usage: 1.7%

System: 35C
CPU: 38C
AUX: 31C
Core: 101C

In any case, what kind of case are you using, and how is your cooling set up? (how many intake/exhaust fans do you have, what size/type, and where theyre at in the case)

What kind of case do you have? Can you same pictures of it, and upload them to imageshack or tinypic then post them here?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16811147075 that is the exact case I picked up, Haven't changed anything. Been lookin for a intake fan mounting point, may have to make one.

Get another case with better air flow.

The max core temp for that cpu is 70C, get some better ventilation in the case and try to keep the case temp closer to ambient room temperature.
Chewy

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

Your case does have a place to mount a front fan.
You'll have to take off the front cover, to access it.

Yeah I noticed that as I posted up the link. Put a fan up there, not crashing anymore!

6.1%

System: 27C
CPU: 32C
AUX: 34C
Core:94C

In a 20C room, very much improved. I very highly doubt the Core is 94C, theres just simply no way.

Yeah, that does seem strange.... I wonder where that's coming from. Have you looked at the temps as reported by the BIOS? Check page 65 of this manual:
ftp://174.142.97.10/manual/A785GXH128M.pdf
(From ASRock's site)

What version is your BIOS? Looking on the same site it looks like ver 1.2 is out, adding something called "CPU Active Core Control" dated 12/4/09. I don't know what that is, but hey, it's worth a shot!

The temp in the BIOS is saying 41C, I updated to 1.2 right out of the gate when I started to have heat issues. Meh, I may just have to get a better fan, the one that came with it is kinda janky, it blows off to the side.
