Question about Computers & Internet
Have you tried replacing the entire heat sink with a bigger fan. They sell heat sink plus fan but you have to buy one that fits unto the motherboard.
Also, if this processor keeps heating up, the processor itself might get damaged, if it hadn't already. You might want to get the processor itself tested at a computer repair shop or if you have another computer using same type of processor.

Yes the problem as you discussed was the processor's overheating. first, you need to open up the side cover of your casing then switch on check vissually if the fan of the processor is spinning if not then you need to replace this. and if this is spinning upon power on, the power supply will be checked its voltage.
