Pentium D running extremely hot

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I put together a pentium D system, but i can't seem to do anything because of overheating. I set everything up as usual, adding the right amount of thermal paste, topping it off with masscool heatsink. But when i boot it up, motherboard readings tell me the cpu is at 66C almost immediately, and then proceeds to jump up to 76C, and even up to 80C. When trying to load up the windows installation cd, the pc shuts down, most likely because of overheating. is there something i missed or could do differently?

hmm I am not familiar with that heatsink, but you prob just need to reseat it, as in take it off, and put it on all over again. A common mistake is caking on thermal paste, pentuim D's run hot, but a good HSF should keep it below 40-50

Thats the heatsink if it helps. Im going to try reseating it and possibly adding some AS5 instead of the provided thermal paste.

yeah, looks pretty cheap, but I don't think that it should be that bad. If it still puts out high temps, I would invest in a tuniq tower or zalman 9700, if you are going to OC, if not, I am sure you can find something better for cheap

check if its flat then reapply/reseat thats it, other then that get a better sink Ds do run hot mine idles at 36c mostly with load up in the high 50s with 62c the highest i ever let it go

well if he's not gonna OC, a 9700 or tuniq's gonna be just overkill O.o

if you're not gonna OC give these cheaper options a go if that masscool doesn't work out for u:

Yea, i bought a cheap heatsink since it wasn't going to be overclocked. At the moment, I'm hoping it's just the cheap thermal paste not doing a good job. Is there any other factors that may affect the cpu running so hot? its definitely not an environment factor, as room temperature when i ran it was in the fifties, possibly lower.

Mine runs at 30c idle and at load it runs at 49c. This cpu does seem to give varying results temp wise. Mine is running the stock HSF btw.
Reseat the HSF as stated above and see where you are then.

Pentium Ds will run hotter on a crappy $10 heat-sink.

Try a Tuniq Tower 120 and you can squeeze up to 1,000mhz and temps wouldn't go above 55c. My Pentium D 945 does 4.51ghz fine, up from 3.40ghz.

That heat-sink/fan is definitely cheap, and as bad as the "stock" one. No offense but it's just the reality.

If you dont have much money and dont want to OC at all, get a cooler for about 20$.

Also, there much be something wrong. Even stock cooler can do better than that.

Did you try to put the stock cooler in?
