i run a memory check

I did 3 test with intelburntest and the temperature was very high 90-100c but the test was completed without problem

Any idea of what is my probleme
Thanks have a great Day


Apply new thermal paste to the heatsink, temps in the 90s is too high. If anything is overclocked set speeds to stock settings. Could be the power supply, it's almost 10 years old and not a great quality one. First thing is to go over the system and make sure it's clean, nothing blocking vents, fans are clean and all working.
