Think I've killed my cpu - Page 4

And lone behold, that one cable was the cause of all those problems -_-

Thank you all who have helped me with this, it seems on top of the £300 upgrade I have planned I also need a new psu.

I did nearly have a heart attack as a cable blocked the cpu fan from spinning for a couple of minutes, but everything is okay. Now gonna overclock back to 3.5Ghz, after watching a few more tutorials to make sure I don't kill the PC properly this time!

What cable was the defect if i may ask? Also glad to hear you got your pc back up and running.Just make sure you do some testing to make sure you have it 100%.

It was one of the flat power cables that runs to newer hdd's and blu-rays. I've now got my cpu back up to 3.4Ghz with a load temp of 48 max. Seems to be running fine now, but I think I'll leave the case open from now on until I get myself some nice aftermarket cooling

Sorry I fell asleep, but really glad you got it fixed. I would definitely get that PSU changed out immediately. Ahh... computers. You love them when they work, and hate them when they don't.
