in order to run dual channel properly you can't just stick any ole chip in, they have to be paired and you have to keep them in pairs.
if you have processor useage always hanging around 45% no matter what you are doing you have a rouge process that is hung and eating up clock cycles, which causes the heat to rise and build.
pull up task manager, go to the processes tab, show processes from all users, then sort them all by the highest CPU. The one with the highest number that always keeps coming back up end it, see what happens.
you could also do something as simple as booting from a live ubuntu CD and reading your stats in that to corner it down to a system issue and NOT a hardware issue. Sucks that you've already spent money on this issue and nothing has been resolved.

well my mobo got only 4 ram slots...2 black 2 blue: from what i understood as reading around that the 2 rams got 2 be in same color slots...is true? when checking with EVEREST benchmark it says: unganged dual channel...this means?
my processor usage no more hangs that high without any process running its at 4-8% but once i launch any process it seems like taking double what it used be4... i just made fresh system installation in case i had something wrong on the other one and no kind of change shows:S

no that is not always true.
look by the slots should say something like
DIMM 1A DIMM 2A

so whats where i should add the rams?
considering my temp prob? any ideas what could be the reason?:S

you replaced the heat sink, you applied thermal paste correctly. All bases covered. Have you tried manually setting fan speed in the BIOS? I would manually set it to medium and see what that brings you.
How hot is in inside your current location?

is 24 here...could that be a reason for the processor's high temp?:o
considering the heat sink and thermal paste yea am pretty sure r applied correctly as i just bought the cooler and got it steady on the processor... what bases u mean? for manually setting the fan speed...well am not so good at that and dunno how :$ if u can instruct me ill much appreciate it... could it be a PSU prob?:o

no this can't be a PSU problem.
Are you comfortable navagating the BIOS?

i guess ill after all have 2 take it to where i bought it from as its now dead...i start it fans and everything spin everything got power connected to but there is no beep or monitor display:/

No monitor or beep means something screwed up terribly inside. Either the CPU fried, the memory is bad, or the PSU died. Given the history of your problems I would guess this box needs a CPU replacement now. After overheating problems due to inadequate cooling CPUs often work for some days or weeks before dying completely. You may have reached that point now.

thanks for the hint:) ill guess is what ill have to do just hope i wont be stuck and have 2 pay for a new one and that it would be just replacement due to the warranty
thanks for the help really appreciated:)
