Overheating problems

post #1 of 7
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.

The temp. sensor on the motherboard might have been buggered up.. I don't really see how though. Put your finger on your heatsink and see how hot it is.. if it's really hot then there's something wrong..

Yeah I was kinda thinking something like that, i touched the heatsink and probably room temp, which cant be more then 68 F, the heatsink is not hot at all, but I dont know whats going on underneath it. its a *****ing heatsink and fan I got tho, and I dont understand how the chip would be jumping up 25 degrees F in a matter of 3 seconds when I run applications.

That's a tough one. If there's something wrong with the CPU's sensor then
you'll never know how hot it's really running even though the CPU is running
good. And if it is running that hot something is bad. Do you have an
extra CPU lying around you can test with? If the second CPU heats up then
the problem clearly isn't CPU bound.

Unfortunately I don't, yeah I somehow think this is going to end up costing me an arm and a leg,

check your temps on the bios screen, then compare then with the oveheat warnings
i had the same type of a problem with my gigadyte board when i was pushing my p4 prescott 3.0 to 3.6 /CPU-Z Database (ID : 141388).my fix was taking the board thru a good cleaning.[asus tower with temp monitor, and 2 case fans.now it is quiet[well except for all the fans running full boar...lol

Your temps in bios after about 10 minutes will reflect pretty close to a 100 percent load temp.
