Overheating problems

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Ok, I'm in a pickle here, I've got a p4 3.0ghz HT cpu, 1gb ddr2 pc4200 ram, Abit AL8 motherboard, and a Geforce 7950 GT, with a 500w power supply. I OC'd the vid card to a good point, and it ran perfect.
then yesterday I went out an bought another 1gb ddr2 pc5300 ram stick, and a new sony dvd burner which i replaced the old burner with, and added the ram right next to my other stick, I have 4 dimm slots, and my 2x 1gb sticks are side by side i the same channel.
After starting up the first time, it went to the regular motherboard load screen, and stayed there, I restarted, and it loaded all the way to windows, it recognized my new memory stick, and then I went about doing my normal stuff, I tried loading Ghost Recon advanced warfighter, and my CPU temp monitor started beeping at me, so I exited out, downloaded my motherboards recommended monitoring software (Abit uguru) and my CPU was running about 50c in idle, so I tried paring a movie that I had downloaded, basically unzipping it, and my temp shot up to about 75c and my CPU beep alert started *****in at me again. So I was monitoring it for a while and saw that any time a lil stress was put on my processor, the temp would shoot up, and my fan would roll full blast. I went out and bought a CoolerMaster Hyper 48 heatsinc and fan, installed it, and was still overheating the exact same.
All of my fans are clean, everything was installed perfectly that I just bought, and even with this new fan n stuff it's still running the same temp in idle and i'm overheating just trying to do regular stuff.
Is there any connection between adding my new ram module or OCing my GPU? or can anyone give me any suggestions, because I really don't want to go out and buy another CPU or motherboard.

Have you tried running without that RAM you installed or that DVD burner. I'm not familiar with DDR2 exact rules with them because I don't run it, but maybe you can't run 2 different speeds?

Try taking that Ram you bought out and unplugging the DVD burner. Too fishy for it to jump up to 75C instantly with a little stress!
