Help with upgrading Dell system

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
my mobo is a asrock p4vm800 (cheap i think?) i only bought it because it has oc on its bios and it supports a prescott 478pin 3.2gz with ht and dual dimm 184 pin ddr.But my desktop is a dell dim 3000 and used to have a intel 865gv mobo when my cpu was in the intel mobo my cpu temp never got above 35c with only a heatsink and no fan. Now i have a asrock mobo when i put my cpu in with a cooler master hyper 48 it can climb up to 59c-60c why? i find it hard to find a good mobo with 478 pin, usually now they are all 775 pin.any suggestions for a good mobo (not that expensive) and a good heat sink and fan that is supported so i can oc without frying my cpu. ps any good oc ing software recomendations.

thanks

Did you use thermal paste? Are you using the same cooler as in the dell? If not, could the one in the dell be better? Also how did you manage to get that motherboard in a dell case?

Hi Kingy,

I have to ask the same question as Fishie, did you use thermal paste or a "new" thermal pad?? You should not re-use the old thermal pad on the cpu when you removed it from the MSI board and placed it on the Asrock board. This will increease those temperatures dramatically! You'll need to scrap off the old thermal pad and clean the heatsink bottom. I've used a plastic credit card to scrap off the thermal pad stuff. Don't use any scraping device that will scratch the surface. When you remove the thermal pad gum, use rubbing alcohol or similiar cleaner to remove all residual. The cpu will also need to be cleaned of all the old thermal pad stuff. Then apply a good thermal paste. Apply it lightly, too much can be just as bad as too much. Some more help can be found here for applying the paste.

I hope this helped, :-)

Well I'm quite out of ideas then if you've used new thermal paste and it's still getting bad temps. Do you know the correct method for putting paste on or did you just squeaze a load on there? Also it may be possible that dell put an ofset on their temperature sensor to make you think it was running good.

Hi Kingy,

I haven't forgot about you, but I have been doing some research. There are some reported problems with the Asrock board on the internet. Some with BIOS problems, drivers, the board bending easily, but none with your problem of heat. Frankly, I'm stumped. If the cpu is sitting on the socket correctly, the thermal compound has been applied, and all other related items are good, I have no idea what is the problem with your board. However, that much additional heat is troubling (35C vs 59-60C). The board is a micro ATX variety, but that should not give you the heating problems you're seeing. If you do find a problem, please post back and let us know. Ok?? As for other motherboards with the 478 socket. I always go to pricegrabber for the best look at current pricing and availability. Here's a link for the 478 M/B's:
http://www.pricegrabber.com/search_a...e_id=40/popup1[]=60:278
Here you should find several boards that might be of interest to you. However, I see you live in the UK, so I don't know if these vendors ship overseas. But the list of boards should help you find something to look for in the UK.
I'm really sorry that I couldn't be of more help to you. :-( I'd love to see the board in question along with the setup you have and my wife would love to go back to London, but my families finances say no way...

In the meantime, good luck and I'll keep looking for some answers or checking this thread for updates.

Take care, :-)

A big upgrade would be to take a BFH and smash it (im gonna make one someday)JK. You should start by buying a new case and .
