Heat issues with 3500

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Blah, my friend just bought a new comp like 3 weeks ago. His amd64 3500 venice usually runs around 42-48C. After about 2hrs of playing COD2, he noticed his room was getting really hot, so he checked his cpu temp and it was 57C. Usually, he plays COD2 for around 3-5hrs and its only around 47-48C. I havn't went down to take the heatsink off, but you think that thermal expansion may have lifted the heatsink from the cpu? Also, on his mobo, we had the hardest time originally trying to put the heatsink on. By far the hardest one ive ever did. I could barly get the side clips on, but after the 2 were on, it almost seemed like the locking arm was gonna break. It seemed quit secure without using the locking arm, but i told him to check on it to make sure it didnt get loose and to keep checking temps for awhile. And what do you know, a problem has occured. Should I try to force the arm down, even though it seems like its literally going to break it? Also, I need to order some Arctic Silver 5 because I don't have any left. I usually have used the thermal pads that come on the heatsink itself, so when applying the arctic 5, I just use a bb size right? Thanks

With all the difficulties you were having getting that FHS on you may want to check the seating.
I prefer to spread a very thin layer with safety razor to assure full coverage.
Don't use your finger because of oils in the skin.

BTW, was kitty cought raiding the frig again

Yes. Make sure it's seated right.

As for buying thermal paste, this is like the best deal on the planet (ceramique more less equals as5). Ceramique 22g $7

Smart cat
Anyway, .... still
Does the case have good air flow...
The volume of air in and out could be the issue.
In earlier days of OCing ...
Just upping the front and rear 80mm (each) to common 92 Sunnon fans droped my CPU temps 5-8c

ack,a 2800+ that i built had that problem. it seemed like it was goin to break, but since it was in an ofice that i dn't use, i just clipped it and went to town because i wasn't goin to change anything.

but ya, as duke said, spread some as5 w/ like a razor or a credit card or something, always works the best to put a thin layer...

Yeah, airflow seems fine. 1x80mm exhause, 1x80mm intake and 1x120mm intake on his case. He may need more sometime, but anyway like I said.. the first 2weeks he used it, it was only around 45-48C now its 55-57C. I asked him on phone and he said that the fan is still spinning on his heatsink, but ill be able to go look at it tomarrow and check out the thermal pad. Thanks guys

Edit: oh yeah... what do you think is MAX that should be allowed temperature wise?
