Hot cpu and core

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
so yeah...
i was planning to overclock my cpu but i noticed that it was running too hot at 100 C and my core 120 C my cpu is AMD sempron 1.6 GHZ petnuim 4
this temprature is when i play games for about 20 minutes so i have to wait for it to cool off every 20 minutes
when its just running windows for 30 minutes gets up to 60 C core 55 C
oh and aux is a problem too not sure what it is but its 55 C in windows and
90 C when playing games
what is wrong??

AMD Sempron 1.6 pet 4? O_o
Fill in your system specs and it could be dust and what is your cooler?

What's an AMD sempron 1.6GHz petnium 4? First since it's probably an old computer, open it up and dust it out with a hair drier or something, but do it outside .

Yep, get rid of all the dust on the CPU heat sink (and everywhere for matter, including case intake mesh cloth) and fan and give it ago again. Chances are if it's old it's dusted beyong belief!

If that doesn't help, it may be beneficial to re apply thermal paste to the CPU.

Aux? And what are you using to take these temperature? Absolutely sure it's degrees Celsius?

Apologies for coming across as patronising, just covering all the bases

I've heard about that happening on the Phenom i7's as well.

Edit. Hang on!

Yeah apologies for the the message previous to the edit, I didn't see what you'd written in the Rep message.

Firslty what are you using to monitor these temperatures?

OK. So, don't worry about opening the case! If you are careful, nothing bad is going to happen. Although there are sensitive parts, the inside is far less fragile than what your average user thinks.

Firstly, you can just have a look. May not be necessary to do anything now. Although I'm betting if you haven't opened it before, It's going to be pretty dusty in there. So, turn off your computer. On the back where the power cable is, there could be a power switch. Turn it off if there is. If not, no problems, just switch off at the wall and pull out the lead.

Next lay it on it's side. Open the side of the case. Nothing to break so far, don't worry! Have a little look around. Just don't touch anything inside. Although if you must, keep one hand on an UNPAINTED part of the case, or something else around you in the house that will keep you grounded. There are also static wristbands for the purpose, but many just do what I said before.



That's your motherbaord. Where the white socket is, is your CPU incase you didn't know, and the cooler is on top of that. Usually a heat sink with a fan on, or it may just be a heat sink.

How does the dust look on this? If it's pretty bad, you could go online and buy some compressed air. This is used for cleaning inside, and is preferred as there is no moisture inside the bottle. Don't use a hoover as there could be a risk of static. However if you wish to spray the air, and then hold the hoover above the case slightly and aim to direct the dust into it, that's completely fine too.

If you wish to take this on step further, you could re apply the thermal paste. This is the substance between the bottom plate of the Heat Sink, and the top of the CPU. It acts as a bridge to compensate for the inconsistency in flatness on the 2. And is a much better conductor than Air.

Sometimes over time this substance can become less efficient, or it may have not been applied properly in the first place. Re applying it can sometimes be beneficial. A small tube of this can be bought for $5 or so... It will last ages as you only need a blob smaller than a pea. If you wish to do this, search the forums closer to the time...

Lets see how we get on with this first!
