I have an HP Pavilion Elite m9500y, AMD Phenom x4 processor, 8gb RAM, a GeForce 520, and some problems.
On startup I had heard some odd grinding noises and occasionally got an error message saying the fan had failed. I replaced the video card, power supply, and 2 fans inside the computer. The fans were a 90mm case fan and an 80mm CPU fan. After replacing all this stuff, the grinding noise has disappeared and the computer isn't nearly as sluggish.
HWMonitor says my SYSTIN is at 105 Celsius, my CPUTIN is at 54 Celsius, and my AUXTIN is at 110 Celsius. It says the processor cores are all at 47 Celsius. Before I replaced everything those first 3 were at least 100 Celsius. To me that seems like I would melt my computer and I'm wondering if it's a heatsink issue or if the sensor is wrong - why would the processor say 47 and the other 3 say over 100? If it is a heatsink issue, does anyone know of a good one that would fit given that the CPU fan was 80mm?
