I believe I have the x1800 XL.

its a bit better than the X1800GTO but it doesnt need as much power as the X1800XT and it doesnt create as much heat either. So i dont think the gpu's heat is the culprit b/c even with the stock fan at 100% it gets around 46C.

Yea, I just connected it. Not much seems to have changed.

Since I downloaded SpeedFan, I'm pretty convinced this is some sort of CPU problem... because I watch the CPU usage bar and my CPU pretty much overloads when loading up guild wars and them temp goes up to 98 degrees.

So here's where I'm at:

-I don't have any thermal paste
-I'm thinking about getting a new PSU to see if that fixes the problem
-I found something VERY interesting in that WIndows SP2 article on the Microsoft site, it's a problem that applies to My exact processor and my exact version of windows: http://support.microsoft.com/?id=896256#appliesto

The problem with this ~ They want me to call WIndows support to get a 'hotfix' for this problem (which means paying), additionally, I don't even have a legit version of Windows!

I dont believe its the PSU because the X1800XT needs a 450watt minimum and the X1800XL shouldnt use as much so u should be fine, but i dont know your amps on your 12v so u might have to. Is there a way to find out the amps on your 12v even though u cant see it?

Missed your temp post. Yes, temps are the issue. 81C is way to high.

You might cause damage at those temps. Make sure the heatsink is properly connected. Do order some thermal paste. AS5 is generally considered the best: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835100007

For now, don't do anything stressful with this rig; I'd recommend to keep it off even until you have those temps under control.

Once you get the thermal paste, remove the heatsink; clean both the CPU and the heatsink with 99% alcohol; apply a little bit of AS5 (like the size of a grain of rice, on the center of the CPU), and re-install the heatsink. Make sure it is securely mounted.

If you want to spend a litle more money, you might want to get a new CPU heatsink/cooler, like this one:

No need to get a PSU at the moment. It's your CPU. It's throttling because of the high temps. High temps cause the CPU to slow down dramatically in an attempt to stay cool. If getting your CPU temps under control does not work, then you can always look fora PSU.

The Microsoft article does not apply to you . You do NOT have dual CPUs. You have a Pentium 4 with hyperthreading. This reporst in Windows as two CPUs in the Task Manager, but that's just a trick. The MS article does only apply when you have two physical CPUs or a Dual Core CPU (Intel Pentium D, Intel Core 2 Duo, AMD X2, and some AMD Opterons.)

Prescotts do run hot, but he should stay below 60C load under any and all circumstances. I suspect the lack of thermal paste and/or an incorrectly mounted heatsink

check if all four pins are fully pushed through the motherboard.

So you guys really think that the CPU overheating is my problem?

What do you think of that article I showed you? It says in the article that the problem affects both my CPU and my version of Windows...

First of all I'm going to phone around town to see if anyone has any AS5. I'll try and keep off any games for now. I hope I didn't damage my CPU. :S

I sure hope you're right. I DO remember having trouble when i was putting on my heatsink, it wasn't going on easily. What the REAL ***** is... I bought AS5 when I first built my comp but I wasn't sure where to put it on. So I put it in a little box that's not 500 miles away (in storage). Ugh...

Thanks everyone for your help, I have to go to work for now but I'll try and quickly get some Thermal paste and reconnect my heatsink and pray that it works. I'll report how everything went in about 7-8 hours. Thanks!
