OverheatingFollow

Im having a problem, last night my system overheated and turned itself off. I thought as ive had this problem before it would be the cpu fan and just went out and bought a new one. So i got back and installed the new fan, fired up ffxiv and after about 5mins the computer restarted itself.

I had a look on CPU ID Hardware and discovered something was at 101*C. I dont know if anyone else uses this hardware but it gives two temperature readings: TMPIN0 and TMPIN1. What does the TMPIN0 relate to, as this was the one overheating.

I checked the heatsink and it was fine, but the processors are sitting around 76*C.

If anyone has any advice it would be much appreciated :p

Might be a dumb question, but are you using thermal paste between the cooler & the heatsink?

Edit: ninja'd

Also:
What is the CPU?
how much do you have your CPU overclocked?
What is your voltage at?

Not to sound like a jerk or anything, but are you sure you applied the paste correctly & in the right amount? That's the only reason I can think of for your CPU running so hot if you have a heat sink on it.

It may not be an accurate reading that you are getting. Restart and go into bios and check your temperature there.

If you have not overclocked and not adjusted your voltage, then your heatsink is most certainly not applied correctly.

Don't use to much thermal paste when applying the heatsink. Just a thin strip will do. Check you thermal paste manual.

Did you verify that the old fan was bad? With computers, never just buy a new part cause you think the old one is bad.

I got my friend who "Knows everything about computers" (lol) to fit the fan for me. I took the fan off and discovered he hadnt applied the paste properly so ive just re-done it myself and see if that helps. Still appear to be running a little high though.

How many fans do you have on the case? Are all these fans working? Is there a lot of dust inside?

I have the main cpu fan and a rear fan. Im waiting on a new rear fan from amazon because the stock one is a bit crap.
Ive cleaned the rear fan and of course the cpu fan s brand new.

That's a dangerous breed. They know a little bit and think they know everything, which winds up getting them in trouble.

Sinth I couldn't help but notice your temp. Your running 76 at load or idle? I assume Load which does seem a tad bit high for not being oc'd and a amd chip.

Is your cooling ok? Sometimes over time a intake or exhaust fan can collect dust which can actually slow down the RPM of your fan, less airflow = higher temps. If it still stays high after the new fan pull out the dremmel and cut some more holes in your case.

I'm using one on the top of the pc:

still way too high. reseat your heatsink, and make sure it's tightened. and when I say tightened, I mean VERY tight. don't be afraid to crack the cpu, because it won't happen.

TMPIN0 is the CPU case temperature.

TMPIN1 and TMPIN2 would be the northbridge and southbridge of your mobo, but yes TMPIN0 is the CPU.

VERY bad advice. You can very easily damage a CPU or motherboard by applying too much pressure.

Okay ive seated the fan properly, cleaned the rear fan, applied thermal paste properly but the cpu temp is at 75C.
Seriously running out of ideas now :(

Right, ive tried again with the fan today, ive noticed the heatsink itself isnt hot whilst the cpu is overheating which makes me think that isnt the problem.

I phoned my local computer shop and he said it could be the either the cpu or the motherboard is on its way out. I cant really afford to replace both at the moment, Im just wondering which of the 2 it could be, or whether it could be something completely different.

The heatsink you have, are you sure its compatible with your specific CPU?
