Well, my system i just built has been shutting off randomly, and i have been thinking that it is the power supply, but i just saw something and now im worried.

I opened the program "SpeedFan" which monitors your components temperatures.

I am using an i5-2310 processor.

It lists my temperatures here:

It is saying my Core 0/1 are at 60 degree C at idle; just browsing web etc.

That seems very bad, should i be worried? How can i fix this?

I applied thermal paste before putting the heatsink on, and i plugged in the cpu fan as well. Are "core 0/1" temperatures my CPU temps? and could this be causing my shutdowns?

My e5200's stock HSF had preapplied thermal paste on it. Maybe you put a layer of paste on top of some already preapplied. Too much paste can be just as bad as too little.

Does the HSF move what you touch it? If so; it's not correctly mounted.

The first you should try is to reseat the HSF. If it does not work; clean and remount it.

Yeah, that's pretty bad. What kind of cooler are you using? I hope it isn't a stock Intel.

Everyone has the ir own method for applying thermal compound, personally, I do the pea method.

Logan (TekSyndicate) has some tips if you need any help.

I've found Speedfan to not be accurate for CPU temps. Try Coretemp instead:
