How long after thermal shutdown can I restart the computer

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hello,

2500k on a Corsair H60

I put together a system for a friend and it was working great before I sent it off to him. He just tried to turn it on, and it overheated and shutdown. I asked him if the fans were running and he said yes. I asked him if he could turn the screws holding the H60 on the mobo, and he said he was actually able to turn them all a bit...so I'm guessing in transit they became loose.

What is a safe restart process?

instantaneously. if your h60 is working properly it should immediately dump heat down to a suitable level for operation.

wait about 30 minutes, just to be safe, then try again

I would think you would just turn it on maybe 20-30 minutes after and let it boot. Immediately after, I would go into aida64 or hwmonitor and watch the temps. It could also be a thermal paste problem.

Thank you for the quick replies everyone!
He said he tried to restart it right away and it said something about manual mode. He then just turned it right back off. I'm not exactly sure what that is because I've never had a computer overheat. Is it something I should force it past? I'll wait about 10 more minutes, which will put us at the 30 minute mark just to be safe before I call him back.

I'd say ten minutes, go make a cup of coffee and by the time you sit down with the hot cup, it'll be ready to boot. He may need to remount the cooler.

all of you are way too precautious over the thermal limit kill switch.

as soon as your cpu reach the limit it tells it to stop doing what it should be doing.

this is metal on silicon. it doesn't take that long to drop cpu temps when it is off.

unless you are living in a desert you should not worry too much if your cpu shuts down from over heating.

So we just restarted it. It went into windows and was at around 85 degrees, and reached to 90 within a minute so we turned it off again. He said 1 screw was real loose, 1 screw was a little loose and the other 2 were tight. Just rescrewing the heatsink didn't help. So should I have him remove, clean the tim, and reapply? Is there anyway to tell if the pump is working? I wish these things had a little pump function light or something.

there is no harm in waiting a little bit extra. Nobody came in here telling the OP that instantly restarting was going to kill his CPU. No reason to bash on other people's posts just because they differ from yours, especially when the advice others are giving is not wrong or bad advice
