    what do you mean by "high CPU numbers"???

    did you clean all the old paste off the CPU and heatsink with isopropyl alcohol and apply new thermal paste prior to installing it in your new board? if not then there's a good chance that it's overheating

    Yes, it is probably overheating.

    Also, in your coming posts, please use proper english and vocabulary, you are hard to understand and this makes our job hard.

    i had no problem reading his english.

    it wasn't perfect but I got what he was saying. not everybody is a grammer and vocabulary expert, nor is it a requirement of this forum to be one. also english may not be his first language.

    next time try to welcome a new member, instead of criticizing them ;)
