This seems to be the best explaination this is a pretty old model and I was tricked into buying this I had ordered a Gigabyte one.
It doesn't even supports 4 GB of ram. If only there was a Mobo that would support core 2 duo and future processors. As I mentioned if there is no future proof upgrade that can be done then I would rather use this PC to its limit until its dead, even saying that makes me feel guilty, these things feel like pets tongue.gif

Its like maybe sometime in you life you lost a lot of equipment from a PSU and now your always scared something will happen. I'm not saying it wont but I'm not acting like oh god this is going to DIE and BLOW UP EVERYTHING!

His point was that saving $20 isn't worth the increased risk of losing $1000 worth of PC components. Not that all low-quality PSUs will kill your family.

And only put a small amount of paste when you reapply it. Like, about the size of this smiley face: smile.gif
Although the stock intel cooler is junk, it should still give you better temps than that.

Yup, applied very less quantity of paste and I used isopropyl alcohol, it came with the thermal paste. I used coffee filters to wipe it off. Left it for 15 minutes then used my PAN card tongue.gif to spread the paste. I think its just the mother board as Zig-Zag suggested also the temps may be higher as I live in mumbai which is a fairly hot and also humid climate.

I think your stock cooler got damaged... I had this issue on a P4 machine, idled at 90C, replaced the cooler with a different one and the problem was solved... The way the clips are on this type of cooler are designed make them very prone to breaking..

The cooler is fine it was the pins., and they suck. I bolted that heat sink on the board and it's working fine.
