Athlon 64 3400+ Temperature Resistant!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Not really but here is my story.....
I have the rig in my profile below. The cpu is overclocked to 12 x 217 due to AGP/PCI locks not being present. Anyway...my power supply blew the other week and was forced to temporarily use a cheapo 500w. All was well with the exception of while trying to encode or burn dvds the system would just shut down about 1 hour in. I was livid!!! I chalked it up to a weak power supply but then I thought. Even a weak 500w cheapo power supply should power this setup. I pondered for a few days and was like, "well, Let's open her up." The pc has been running 24-7 for about a week with the occasional shutdown as previously explained. I opened up the box and guess what I found!! My cpu fan had become unplugged during the power supply swap.
I freaked, plugged it back in and Voila!! No more problems! Even did Prime for 24 hrs to be sure. Now I am running about 38c. idle and 43 c. load.
Funny thing is, i played CS:S a few times for a couple of hours during the CPU fan dilema. Man I love the durability of this CPU......or probally just lucky!

Thanks for reading.

how?!?!? the heatsink on its own couldn't have conducted enough heat. i'm really surprised your system dnt shut down continously. Wat temp have you got your shut down set to in the BIOS? must be really high.

I have the same CPU and it is very durable. I have run it before without the CPU fan going when I broke it and had to wait a couple days to get a new one. Did just fine. I had it start stuttering like crazy on me once when I had my Radeon 9550 overclocked to over 460 on the core. Was putting out so much heat that it made the processor overheat.
