    Default Processor overheating

    Ever since I installed Storm of Zehir the temperature(according to the case) of my processor skyrocketed. It was usually around 50 something now it's around 70 even if the computer is idle. Some time ago I read that someone had a similar problem, but now I can't find anything on it. Q6600 by the way, not overclocked. Someone please help me fast, the case alarm is driving me nuts(and since the computer is still under warranty I don't want to open it and disable the case alarm from the inside).

    You need to worry about temperatures if you are hitting over 120..
    and you processor will really fry at about 160.

    unless you mean 70CELCIUS, but I doub't because then you'd have fried your cpu already or are damn near it.

    Not to mention, what temperature are you refering to? Core or CPU?
    Anyway

    Q6600: Tcase Max 62c, Stepping B3, TDP 105W, Idle 24W

    -Tcase/Tjunction-
    --60--/--65--65--65--65-- Hot
    --55--/--60--60--60--60-- Warm
    --50--/--55--55--55--55-- Safe
    --25--/--30--30--30--30-- Cool

    Use http://www.techpowerup.com/realtemp/
    and check, as long you not past "HOT" you fine.. you should be between safe-warm.. unless you got some serious colling

    Not really. 70C is slightly on the warm side, but still fine. I'd worry when it its 80C or so.

    Also, the video card alarm starts when it hits 60 celcius. I thought that was quite low for a vc. Oh yeah, case is now indicating 47 celcius on the cpu, but that program indicates:
    56|55|51|52 or something around that.

    check your Bios setting if there are any changes.
    but I doubt the Storm of Zehir would change the bios settings

    70C? Wow, I'd always freak out if my cpu temperature goes even 50...

    Well... According to Intel's T9000 Series Datasheeet [pdf], maximum allowable temperature for the CPU is 105C, and it seemed that's where the temperature was derived from. Now that's all cool with mobile processors. Mine idles at 52|57 - blame HP for that.

    The problem with your processor is that Intel didn't publish anything on maximum allowable junction temperature (I checked the Q6600 datasheet [pdf]), so the value readout from RealTemp (and basically all temperature measurement tools out there that depended on Intel's onboard DTS) was pretty much guesswork. There is a way to find out, but someone's gonna have to open up their case and find out (by manual calibration using a thermometer).

    Anyway, back to topic, have you tried the humble CTRL-ALT-DELETE and check the CPU usage..? Maybe something's taking up resources like hell.

    I ran Baldur's Gate 2 and kept checking the temperatures on the case and on realtemp. When the case showed 70 realtemp showed the first core was at 91, the second wasn't very far, the third and fourth were a little cooler, but still hot. ON BG 2! This is ridiculous. I've owned this computer for around 10 months and had never seen the cpu temp on the case going over 62 celcius(and reaching 60 wasn't common) on anything, crysis, mass effect, fallout 3, Dynasty Warriors 6 or wathever I palyed, never before.
    Anyway to totally rid my system of nwn2(I already uninstaled, no difference) to see what happens or to see if it changed something?
    Would reformating help?

    It just doesn't make sense how a piece of software INACTIVE being responsible for you temperatures..

    If you have, get another HD, install windows, check temp.. install NWN, check temp.. if the same thing happens again.. I'll be damned..
