qx6700 troubles overheating cant keep pc on longer than 15 seconds

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Okay here is the low down,

so I went out and got an evga mobo because I had believed the problem I was having was the fault of thte mobo, I installed all the same components and I still was getting the same problem, I have concluded with the help of lots of tech support that the processor is overheating so fast that the computer cannot stay on for longer than 15 seconds without shutting itself off automatically, I went out and got some Arctic silver 5 and rubbing alcohol, I cleaned off the old thermal paste from the cpu and heatsync and put a drop about the size of a grain of rice in the center of the processor then I put that in the cradle and attached the heatsync, this didnt solve the problem and the computer will still only stay on for 15 seconds then shuts itself off, suggestions? (I am using the stock intel heatsync fan for now) but I should still be able to at least boot up and set up bios.

Try a CMOS reset first. I had a problem like that, but a CMOS reset fixed it. Pull the motherboard battery out for about 10 minutes and stick it back in.

It's probably poor contact dude. Either you used too much or too little thermal paste, and/or you have a case of uneven HS and/or CPU.

Easiest thing to do it reapply the TIM and see if the temps improve, also know that it may take several days @ full load for the paste to break in (200 hours is what AS5 reports on their website).

My advice is to first reapply your thermal paste (AS5 is best IMO) like this:

Here is a shot of my q6600 installed in the MB with AS5 right before I added the HS. It shows the right amount in my opinion given a lapped HS and CPU (which is a thicker line than I used before); the red triangle I drew shows where that tag is on the CPU, remember that on quad core chips, the dies are placed in a different located relative to a dual core, see the instructions on AS5's website for more):



Those instructions will also tell you to gently rotate the HS once you place it on top of the guide which is good advice. Also, before you put the CPU in the socket, do a dry run and make sure your HS is properly centered over the socket. I can't emphasize this enough. On my board and with my HS, if you're not careful, you can get fooled into thinking the thing is centered over the socket when in fact it was about 30 % off center. I reseated it 3 or 4 times with load temps over 70 C in TAT until I figured it out. In other words, don't go off if it looks symmetrical when sitting on the bracket, make sure the exact middle of the HS lines up with the middle of the socket where the CPU will sit.

If you do that and your temps still don't improve after a few days, you may consider lapping the HS and/or CPU to help get the contact between the two better than it is currently.

My Q6600 was significantly concave, meaning the sides of the IHS were higher than the middle. I lapped the IHS and my HS which helped improve the contact between them. The HS was actually convex. You can some pics and temp data in those threads.

Assuming you have a stock cooler, reseat it without the motherboard in the case, like so.

1 2
3 4

In a 1, 4, 3, 2 sequence.
