This should not be happening. Whenever I render video using software such as Handbrake or Sony Vegas the processor heats up to 83c and then the system shuts down. I'm using the heatsink that came with the processor. It should be designed to dissipate this heat!

For now I have hooked a vacuum cleaner hose to the heat sync and it keeps the processor temperature in the 50s. I can render files now without crashes.

Take the vacuum cleaner away and temps rise and system crashes.

WHY would AMD provide a heatsink that is inadequate?

Probably because you also have turbo enabled and your CPU voltage set to auto. Your BIOS is probably providing way too much voltage to your CPU (at load) than it needs to maintain that CPU clock. This is why you should not leave the BIOS values set to AUTO.

Acttuly the stock heatsink is not that bad, with good air flow through your case and the auto fan control set right it will do the job.

Now you may have a tiny air pocket between the heatsink and the cpu so I would remove the H/F clean it and re-apply some good thermal paste and reseat it.
Also adding a couple more case fans would't hurt either.

PII 1100T (Extinct)
Asus M4A78T-E (should be Extinct)
4Gb of Corsair XMS3 1600Mhz DDR3 (Going strong)
2x1GB 5850's (On their last lags)
Corsair HX850W (Awsome)
NZXT Phantom case (too ***** big)

I agree. I've used the stock cooler in a few different systems from socket 754 to AM3 and they all performed well . Of course, none of these systems were overclocked. The cooler in my sig is my very first aftermaket one and I only bought it because I wanted to try overclocking.
