my cpu is too hot and keeps spikeing

45 is perfectly normal for summer. Also, unless you are reaching 95+, it's fine.

Not quite. The max temp on the Phenoms, much like the FX chips, isn't anywhere near 90. It'll throttle at 70c.

Max recommended temp is in the 60-70 range depending on TDP.

my cpu the phenom II x4 975 stays at a constent 40 to 50 c when im just brosing or watching youtube and the stander temps that the internet says that it should be around 25 to 30 c and also adding on to problem it spikes up quite a bit and makes cpu cooler to ogo faster and sence its a smaller cpu cooler it makes a lot of noise i saw that in the bios it siad that it was rung at 4500 rpm or somthing like that and it gets anoying also probly gets really hot while i game and could kill my cpu

Clean the fans, heatsink and old paste off the cooler and CPU, reapply thermal paste and retest. The Phenom is 11 years old at this point and has

a low heat tolerance, so it requires some more maintenance.

The Phenom doesn't even have turbo, only the X4 T Zosma and X6 T Thubans do.

 

The Phenom II has a vastly different architecture (K10).
