Take a look through here: http://www.google.com/#hl=en&q=cpu+coo...8f821b775d1d408

If this is a laptop, you can buy something like this: http://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-NotePa...S/dp/B0009WPSEC

Thanks for the reply,

I have been searching and found programs which runs through windows 95/98/NT but can't work in windows 7. and particular programs like CPU Eat'n'Cool makes my laptop crash, CPUIdle doesn't work and says application error, and CPUCool says application runtime error, too. Both of them shows a registry? value that is the source of the problem, like "can't be found" or somehting. And I have set the compatibility settings to the required OS and still not working...

A few options:

1. Opening up your computer and cleaning it out with a can of compressed air (which makes a HUGE difference in cooling if it's been a while)
2. Buy an aftermarket CPU fan, Freezer 7 Pro by Artic Cooling is a popular option, make sure it fits your socket type, though http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16835186134
3. Freeware that you can adjust fan speed? Look no further than SpeedFan http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php Not the best website to navigate, so don't get fooled by those ads, direct download link is here: http://www.almico.com/speedfan440.exe

I have a sneaking suspicion about SpeedFan, however, that may be causing a small, but annoying glitch of occasionally beeping once at a random keystroke and skipping that particular keystroke in Windows 7 (at least the 64-bit version), but I have yet to confirm it.

You need to get a more heavy duty cooler for cpu and cooler for mainboard compatability not a requirement for coolers and fans get the temp down to about 38 degrees for cpu get a good thermal paste apply a thin layer in middle of cpu and spread with a credit card or similar tool too much and will create heat build up and increase temps have system fans which pull heat out of system above cpu and fans that draw cool air in below cpu cool air drawn into sytem and hit graphics card an cool air drawn into hd's too cool.

Any software you use to monitor temps using win 7 needs to be compatable cpuz or similar.

Not to mention any additional software you add will cause your processor to be used more, which will in turn make it run hotter. The way to cool a processor is to get air across it, and decrease the load. Make sure all the air channels, fans, and fins are clean.

Exactly.

There is software out there that can report temperatures, but not necessarily control them. Your fans automatically take care of that (which is why you should keep them clean). :thumbsup:

Vacuum the air inlets/outlets with the laptop off.

Use a good laptop cooler

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

there is software out there that "claim" to lower CPU temps, but most of them are rip offs, lying, or even if they do, do very little to actually help your CPU cool off, just shutdown background processes that may or may not necessarily be needed. If your motherboard has a built in fan controller and supported hardware, you can turn the fans up which makes it cooler, but chances are you dont have this equipment. Freeware won't help you, you need to improve the airflow of your case, especially over the heatsink, put in a better heatsink, or both.
