Pentium CPU temperature increase beyond normal operating temperature

I have a Pentium 4 3.00 GHz Prescott CPU which a rating of 450W on its power supply. This CPU has a problem wherein its temperature reading sometimes goes beyond the normal operating temperatures. This usually occurs when after starting the computer you load a game such as Call of Duty and the temperature rises from a previous reading of 55C to 76C. The heat sinks in the CPU are the default heat sinks that came with the machine.

Should I replace them or is this temperature increase due to a fault of the power supply? Please help, I need your advice.

The temperature increase is as a result of the applications that are executing on the computer. As you have already said that the temperature increase occurs when you load an application like a game, then it is clear that the game uses a lot of the system memory and the computers resources and therefore leading to the temperature to increase. What I will suggest that you do is to make sure that your fan is in good condition so that it will cool the system and prevent extreme overheating problems.

The temperature increase is not as a result of a fault in power supply but just the application that you are running on the computer.

Hello,

This is Common problem. 55-75 C is Too High value. 30-40C is best. So there are many solutions with this. First try to clean Dust in your system and Clean it, Check it again, Surely few degrees will reduce, If it's not enough, Try to Fix Heat sink and Apply Quality thermal paste. Fix with heat sink and cooling fan properly, also add some system fan. Now check it out.

Good luck.
