So I have had this i3-2120 for a long time now.
It has always run super hot like 70-80 degrees on idle, doing nothing
have took the fan and cooler off multiple times and re applied them and the paste but never helped.
stock cooler running at 2700RPM

Bios says my voltages are
cpu = 0.912v
3.3 = 3.360v
5V = 5.040v
12V = 12.192v


speedfan says these temps are high
auxtin0 = 80Celcius
auxtin2 = 90Celcius
the rest seem normal.

can anybody help ?

Celcius? Those temps would look normal if Fahrenheit.

Not sure what auxtin 2/3 represent. They could be VRM's or Sata controller or other such chipset, which can run hot.

I'd suggest verifying the temps with HWInfo (NOT Hwmonitor!) and check the box for sensors only.
