I got a big problem. - Page 5

post #41 of 42
What are the temps? You repeatedly post very vague questions. Remember, we can only know what you tell us about what is going on. We aren't psychic...

Your options for decreasing temps are (in the order I would suggest trying them).

1. Make sure the GPU and CPU heatsinks are clean and free of dust.
2. Try manually increasing the RPM of the fans.
3. Work on cable management of the case. Try to improve the overall airflow of the case. Even the best heatsink in the world will run hot if the case isn't ventilated properly. The case will simply fill up with hot air... Possibly buy better case fans for the case.
4. Try reseating the heatsinks and re-applying thermal paste (From reading your posts I'm afraid this might be too hard for you, just being honest)
5. Buy a nicer fan for your CPU heat sink.
6. Buy a better heatsink. Again, I'm wondering if you can install this properly. Just sayin...

I dunno, it seems like he just doesn't know English all that well and is trying to get help without having to type out that much. But yeah if he hasnt done it before he could think that its OK to not clean/reapply the thermal paste.

Arkray, my questions are:

1) What did you do to get it working again?

2) How high are your GPU/CPU temps? Use HW Monitor if you have it, but if not just tell us what's in SpeedFan that you're seeing.

If your temps truly are high definitely do a reseat. Make sure you do the reseat properly and very carefully. Do a youtube/google search if you aren't sure. You'll need Isopropyl alcohol and a thermal paste for CPUs like Arctic Silver 5.

Also you should not clear CMOS if power is going into the computer (meaning unplug the computer first). When I read your post a few back it sounded like you cleared it with the power on, but I may have read it wrong.
