In Desperate Need of Help

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
This is my build:

http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2365090

390


MY PROBLEM:

My computer is a Dell DImension E520 and I upgraded the GPU recently to an EVGA Geforce GT 430 1GB which I am loving. I also got a new CPU. This one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116391

When I put this new CPU into my machine, it makes my GPU fan go absolutely nuts. Even when I'm just on the desktop I can hear my fan getting louder, and when I start an app like minecraft, it goes bonkers. It gets LOUD. Why? I don't use thermal paste because I don't have any. I know it's cheap but I just don't have any right now. I'm sure thermal paste would not stop this, though.

Is something overheating?

My computer instantly recognized the new cpu, installed the drivers and everything. It seems like the only problem is my GPU doesnt like it and the fan goes crazy. What do I do?

Is something seriously wrong?

I suggest getting some software for temperature monitoring; realtemp for cpu temperature and MSI afterburner for gpu monitoring.

When you say you don't have any thermal paste, is that for the gpu or the cpu? It shouldn't be a problem for the gpu, but if the cooler for your cpu didn't come with a factory supplied thermal pad at least, your cpu might have a slight heating problem. HOWEVER, before drawing any conclusions I recommend finding out your actual temperatures thumb.gif

I downloaded those programs and this is what's been shown to me.

Yes, I am referring to the fact that I do not have thermal paste on my CPU.


Tomorrow, I'll pop in my new CPU (the one giving my problems) and show you the temperatures I get with it but this screenshot is with my current CPU.

Your GPU temperatures are fine, it's your cpu that's too hot and probably the cooler's fan going bonkers. 60C idling temperatures are way over the top! It should only reach those temperatures at 100% load. If you're not 100% clear on how to apply thermal paste and install the cpu cooler, this guide is on the 775 socket (with the stock Intel CPU Cooler, which comes with a pre-applied thermal pad).
However, since your cpu did not come with a cooler, I suppose you have bought your own aftermarket cooler for the 775 chipset wink.gif since you shouldn't be using a cpu without cooling.

WOW THANK YOU.

So it's been my heatsink making that noise this whole time. I really need to buy some thermal paste and a new heatsink ASAP.

Will any 775 Heatsink + Fan on Newegg work for the my chipset? And will it require anymore power than my current one already uses? Because I'm on a 305W PSU and I don't want to have to upgrade my PSU too.

You're welcome! Just to clarify though, I'm not sure if it's your heatsink that's been making the noise, it's just a guess.

As long as it says it's socket 775 compatible on the product you should be good. In regards to power consumption you're fine as the only thing on the heatsink that requires power is the fan itself and it get's that power from the motherboard which is supplied with plenty of power already thumb.gif

When choosing your heatsink, how effective should it be? There's no need for an expensive one if you're just going to run stock clocks (no overclocking), so go with a ~$20 or so. Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro might be a good choice, $30 is still cheap considering the bang-for-your-buck thumb.gif
