no shutdown yet?

In reply to: high cpu temp

I have a 2.2G P4. It used to shutdown when it got too hot. That's when dust blocked my heatsink. Before it shutdown, it slowed down gradually. If yours doesn't slow down gradually, I'd say it's okay. But if you're not okay with this kind of temperature and have a desktop, you can consider changing your heatsinkfan.

mbm or speedfan

Get a second opinion on that temp with motherboard monitor or speedfan.

That CPU would have shutdown or throttled back

In reply to: high cpu temp

drastically if the were a true temperature. The shutdown is issued from the CPU to the mobo. If the mobo does not have the proper circuits to shut the power supply off when the signal is asserted, the temp MIGHT be valid, but unlikely.

Hi. I don't think any CPU would stand that temperature so what I would do is download Everest Home (free) and that may give you a better idea of what's going on in your system. Good luck Stewart

In reply to: high cpu temp

That the cpu temp is actually a farenheit reading as 35c is roughly equal to 95f. just a thought.
