So, i bought this fx-4100 with stock air cooler approx 2 months back & then the temps were in control (around 37-38C when the ambient temp was 32C). Past few days its been winter and the ambient(room) temp is close to 17C. When i switch on my pc, the CPU temp shoots upto 51-53C. so i let it cool down a bit, and it steps down only by 2-3C (in winter) after 10mins.
The fan speed is always 3856-3879 RPM. now the normal idling temp of the CPU is 53C (with no CPU-intense program running) and hardly reduces to <37C.
I never fidgeted with the cooler for i read strick warnings about the problems of the thermal paste. The installation was perfect!
I need to know where the problem is (CPU of stock fan). Since the CPU is still in warranty, maybe i can get either one replaced.
Also it has become very slow! When i bought it, .xml files in Eclipse Juno used to open without any delay & now Eclipse hangs when i try to open ANY file in it! (not a problem of Eclipse since its a stable build).
