I have a Dell Inspiron 560 - 5 years old. It is:

 

Dual Core i5 E5500@ 2.8ghz

6 Gig Ram

750mb HD

just put in Seasonic 620 PSU

room temp around 75 degrees

 

I see core temps up to 140F. I first thought the PSU would fix the issue, but it did not (another internal fan). This has been going on for several months (before Seasonic PSU). The CPU unit is kept clean. My thoughts now are thermal paste and a new core/heatsink fan?

 

Any thoughts?

104F = 60C  This is not that bad.  The maximum temperature for this CPU is 100C.

Thank you for the feedback about my "CPU too hot". I noticed a temp change this morning. I had it on about 60min, and I noticed that the Temp was 127, and the Core was146.

 

What concerned me was when I first purchased the unit, it was under 100 for both readings. I am still think about core/heatsink and fan. I am leaning that direction because I feel that I need to apply thermal paste. If I am going to do that, I may as well improve the core fan.

 

Any thoughts?

When you post a temperature you need to indicate whether this is F or C.
