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?

Hmmm, this is looking very very strange. Try using Core Temp and post a screenshot. Also is it possible if you could take the side panel off and take a clear photo of the system internal?

The most accurate temperatures are seen in BIOS.   

  • Enter BIOS setup -> Power on top menu.
  • See how the reported temps compare to the other utilities.

I checked the BIOS and couldn't find any temp readings at all. What the computer is doing today is even worse - it worked fine last night, I went to bed, tried booting it over my lunch break today and...I hit the power button, the fans start up, spin at full speed, and then I get a CPU fan failed message and the computer shuts down. This happened two days ago when I first installed the fans (with the case fan backwards like an idiot) but stopped when I reinstalled it the correct way. Also, when the fan was backwards, the fans would stop after 10 seconds. Now they just keep spinning until the computer shuts down.

Everything seems fine, also did you try using Core Temp?

I haven't installed Core Temp yet only because I can't even load Windows any more. Can't even get the BIOS to open before it shuts down. I think I'll try blasting out the heat sink but does anyone know of a good 80mm one?

Something is telling me that the heatsink may need to be reseated to fix the issue or it is defective. So basically try taking of the heatsink and then clean out the thermal paste and replace it with new thermal paste and pop back it on.
