post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I've been trying to get this thing running,I've swapped the thermal paste, I've made sure the cooler is seated properly, but just no.The temperature is rising very rapidly and this is the 1st time i've ever seen it rise so fast.

Here's a video to know what I'm talking about

Pentium 4 630
1.2GB RAM
200GB IDE HDD
8600GT
ASUS P5GPL-X

the thermal paste sitting between the cpu and metal plate(heat spreader) may be the cause of the problem. if thats the case you have to replace the processor. you can get them from ebay for $3 if youre lucky.
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90
the other thing to try is to update the bios if temperature stays inside the safe range
