    So what am I suppose to do now? Please give me suggestions with details (consider me an absolute novice).

    By the way, the max value of CPUTIN once reached 423C. That's right, 423 degree Celsius!

    My configuration is: Intel Core i7 870 2.93 GHz, Intel DH55TC Motherboard, 4GB RAM, GPU: Gigabyte GTX560 (Non Ti or OC), 1 TB Samsung HDD, Gigabyte Superb E720 PSU, an ASUS DVD-ROM & built in sound card.

    Please Help. Thanks.

    Bad temperature sensor, it'll burn long before even reaching 150, let alone 423, lol.

    That said, re-apply thermal paste and re-seat the heatsink. You'll be good to go.

    Normal Casing. Non brand. But I keep the side of the casing open and keep it clean & in open space.

    I read in other forums that CPUTIN sensors are not very accurate. That's not my biggest worry. My biggest worry is the 4 CPU core temperatures.

    And I don't know anything about how to apply thermal paste or re-seat the heatsink. Could you please give me a detail guideline on how to do that? Thanks.

    Latest bug of HWMonitor. It shows high values in max temp. Try Core Temp or Real Temp or Open Hardware Monitor.

    Ok. I took my PC to IDB and reapplied Thermal Paste. Now my 4 CPU cores temperatures are around 78 - 83C when running battlefield 3 or other games, basically doing some heavy work. And at idle, it's around 37 - 43C. Keep in mind that I have only used the PC for about half an hour after applying Thermal Paste.

    Now is that better? Should I get a heat sink just to be safe or keep it as it is? Thanks.

    That's fine enough, yeah. Still seems a bit high for the 'in load' temps, but I reckon you'll need a non-stock cooler for that.

    Could you suggest me a good cooler or thermal heat sink which is compatible with my CPU & motherboard? My CPU is Intel Core i7 870 2.93 GHz with Intel DH55TC Motherboard (I think both are LGA 1156, I'm not sure whether it's relevant or not but I heard it was).

    Thanks...

    I faced the same problem with my i7 too... bought it from rishit & they provide low quality product... & those technicians are even worse !!! they couldnt even set the heat sink properly... sooo what i did ... bought a new heat sink with fan & thermal paste... applied it properly, went to the bios boost up the fan speed to maximum (almost 3000rpm) now its running good

    when setting up the sink make sure its having enough contact with the cpu! & make sure its clean ...

    Get a tube of CM or Tt paste and then re-apply it. Should bring the temps down. Otherwise get the Hyper 212 EVO. Ask Binary to install it for you if you cannot. I guess those IDB technicians applied 20tk White Thermal Paste which are really pure BS.

    I'm not going to overclock. But what do you mean by "Intel Mobo"? Do you mean since I have an Intel Motherboard, I won't be able to install some other non-stock cooler/heat sink or that I will face some other hardware issues? Please let me know.

    I saw some Thermaltake CPU coolers at UCC. Are they any good (what about when compared to Hyper 212 EVO since Thermaltake ones are priced at Tk.4500 and Tk.5400 while Hyper is Tk.3000, I think.......)?

    Are those coolers (Both Thermaltake & Hyper 212 EVO) compatible with my hardware (processor/motherboard or whatever is relevant)? How do I find out which cooler is compatible with my PC?

    And by the way, I read somewhere that the i7 8xx series processors heats up more than other processors. Is that correct?

    He meant that with an Intel Mobo you cannot overclock hence you won't need a cooler. You can install any cooler on your board perfectly fine.
    Anyway, if 4,500 is the SpinQ VT, then stay away from that. A Hyper 212 Evo would be better. But if you want a slightly better cooler you can get one of the Tt Frios, those are more expensive and in return those perform better.

    @eXcavator said it all. And i7 9xx series produces more heat than the 8xx series. I suggest you to buy a decent TIM and live happy
