I woke up this morning to find this error message: "Hardware failure please check blah blah" I go to check what is wrong, my CPU is 81c. Do you think my CPU fan is about to die? Whats critical mass for a anyways?

Most people would consider 81C (at an idle) to be way too hot for a CPU. Some computer bios's have a protection mode that will turn the computer off if it reaches 75C ( it can normally be increased to about 85C). Most computers nowadays consider 50-70C to be normal operation, but some of the new dual cores can get up to 90 under crazy load.

I would think that your fan has probably turned off, and the heatsink is doing all the work. You probably want to go out and buy a good heatsink + fan combo, and regrease the cpu to the heatsink. There is a possibilty that your cpu is totally hosed, but if it does boot into the bios, then it's probably alright.

Remove the computer case (computer powered off) and quickly turn it on. If you see the fan spinning at a good rate, then either your grease has failed for some reason (very rare), or you have different computer issues (maybe a bad powersupply feeding too much voltage to the cpu).

Hope that helps.

thanks for the help dustin. In my sleepyness this morning when I saw that the CPU was that hot I opened the case and checked the CPU fan and it was still going....thats when I started wondering wtf was wrong. Turns out the little wire to the case fan had been pulled out so none of the air was circulating. I plugged that back in and the CPU temp went down to 54c and the computer booted up properly. Interestingly enough that I could skip the error message and boot into windows normally. Maybe my CPU just wanted a Vacation somewhere warm

I'd probably suggest still getting a higher end heatsink and fan. A good aftermarket one by Arctic Cooling or Cooler Master should be able to keep your CPU cool, even without a case fan running.

Anyways, glad you figured it out

Another thing I have seen heat up a CPU pretty good is:
Some heatsinks have fins that are very close together. After a while a layer of dust builds up on top of the fins, totally restricting any airflow. The fan is running, but the air can't get down to the heatsink fins to draw out the heat. A good blow with some compressed air fixes the problem.
