    is heatsink seated properly on cpu as possibility 1 of 4 prongs attached to motherboard that helps lock heatsink in place is broken or popped out. happen to a friend of mine & the prong broke by itself & could see temp rise quickly in hardware monitor in the bios

    the prongs as i call them are the bracket(cpu retention clip) that is attached to the motherboard that surrounds the cpu socket. if a prong is broken, have to get a new one

    i don't think it is the heatsink but might be fan tho. unclip the heatsink/fan from motherboard, check retention clip is ok than reseat heatsink/fan clamped down tight. repower system than check temp. post results

    Your PC case must be engineered to completely exchange the air, ideally several times per minute.
    As you can imagine, there has been a great deal of attention paid to this recently, because of the enormous heat generated by new CPUs.
    Studies have shown that the traditional front casefan has little or no impact on CPU temps, however exhaust casefans would seem to be critically important.
    There is a new form factor coming, newer than ATX, that relocates the CPU within the case and attempts to restore the effectiveness of the cool-air front casefan.
    That said, 33C is not too bad, and so for you there is hope :)
    I would pay careful attention to the interior of your case, making sure that there is good airflow around the CPU and cooler, and ensuring exhaust routes are not obstructed by cabling or whatever.
    Get yourself some new, shielded round cables to replace the awful flat ribbon-type. These don't cost too much and will greatly improve airflow.
    Make sure your PS has at least two good fans; some power supplies are now available with three!
    If you have a place to mount a 120mm exhaust casefan but an 80mm has been installed there, pull it out and fit the proper size. A single 120mm will move 50CFM, quietly & easily.
    We haven't even gotten to your CPU yet!
    Get a nice big high-performance copper cooler, and mount it carefully using Arctic Silver compound.
    Studies have shown that the OEM cooler goes UP 5C from stock, when re-mounted with cheap compound.
    With Arctic Silver they may go down 5C (and that is a spread of 10C, which is substantial).
    An improved CPU cooler & fan, plus the silver compound of course, is what you need.
    I'll give you 10C for a carefully installed cooler upgrade, plus another 5C for detailing the case - that's 15C total, meaning the difference between 70C on your CPU versus 55C ;-)
    Heat is now the major limiting factor in the engineering of newer/faster CPUs - hence the upcoming new form factor...
    Regards

    either there is a gap or partial gap between cpu & heatsink or fan is not working properly but shows correct rpm. can you try another psu to see if that might be causing the problem
