CPU problem

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have AMD Phenom 2 965. Recently the CPU has a problem.
The CPU usage was very high and sometimes was stuck on 100% CPU usage so I decided to format my PC. Now the CPU usage is not high but is very unstable and once got stuck on 100% CPU usage since i formatted the pc.
This is my CPU's temperatures:

Is it ok?

Thanks.

What do you mean by unstable? Are you overclocked?

Those temps are fine.

The CPU usage is ranging between 0% to 40%, it changes every second.
I didn't overclok my CPU.
By the way, look at the image and look that one of my components have 80 degrees, why is that?

Always go to task manager and see what is using the most CPU usage. Temperatures are what seem to be as idle temps.

Can you tell me what is the component that has 80C?

Its the motherboard sensor. Couldnt say which. Have you touched any of your NB voltages?

That would be the north bridge, but it's nothing to worry about. Just a faulty reading. smile.gif

So as a note to your problem, one day I too was miffed at why two of my six cores were running between 20-40% steadily. I opened up Resource Monitor to find out that 'Origin' was soaking up the cycles for something. No clue what it was as I didn't investigate more than just figuring out which particular processes were using the cycles, but I quickly closed and reopened Origin and the CPU went back to idle.

Now, as far as that kind of thing is concerned - even if you've formatted your PC - might be good to check for any rootkits that are putting your PC to use without you knowing. You can check into Sophos and other rootkit detectors to see what's happening.

If it's hardware related - just RMA the CPU with AMD. They're really good about it. You shouldn't have any problems.

Do you think if i will remove the heat sink of the CPU and remove the thermal paste from the CPU and apply again thermal paste, the CPU will get better?
