Hi, My cousin convinced me to start using this forum, so i'm giving it a go.

I've been messing with my computer quite a bit lately, and have managed to confuse myself quite a few times.

The computer I'm working with is an emachines t6522 (sold only at circuit city). It has an amd 65 3500 processor, and came with 1024mb duel channel ram *two 512 cards* The ram is made by samsung. Last week I installed two more 512 cards of Ultra ram. All my ram is pc3200 duel channel. I have also upgraded from the onboard ati x200 video card to the X700 pro. This system came with a 200gig hard drive and a MSI ms-7093 board.

This computer came with a bestec 300watt max power supply.

I've been looking into overclocking, so first I installed speedfan and PC alert 4 However, last night, after running aquamark and playing battlefield 2, I checked speedfan and it told me that my "remote 2" temperature was extremely high, as in over 200 degrees F. So i decided to open PC alert 4, and it told me that it was going to shut my system down because it was overheating.

I'm not sure about this PC alert 4 program for my system, because this morning, after my computer was off all night, I opened pc alert and it told me right off that my PC was overheating! while speedfan is telling me that my ambient temp is 25 C, my remote 1 = 31C, remote 2=36C and HDO=35C.

So, is remote 2 my video card? and was it about to ignite into flames last night? OR, am i just running the wrong programs, or do I have these programs set up wrong for my system.

Also, could having only a 300watt power supply be causing problems for having the upgraded ram and video card?

christ thats a nice system, but i don't think you can overclock, try going into your bios at startup and see if you can change the speed of the CPU

Remote 2 is your CPU, you should buy an aftermarket heatsink, or apply AS5 to the stock heatsink to fix that.
edit: and yes, he can OC his rig..

Right now "Speedfan" says my "remote 2" temperature is 117C. Is there any way this could be accurate? I would think that at that temperature whatever remote 2 is would be FRIED. And i couldn't understand why it would be that high because I havn't been gaming or using mediacenter.

HELP??????

Your temp sensor is wack. You should try updating your BIOS to a newer version, that should fix the problem. If it dosn't your MB's temp sensor is, well, messed up.

or it could be an empty temp sensor mine read 64C at beggining with all the updates and all that, turns out it was nothing. Best way to check is to put your hand close to it, but don't touch it and see if you can feel any heat.
