Overclocking troubles - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Thread Starter 
I wiped down the processor and heatsink, and then spread a thin even layer of the paste on it, but no difference. All the fans are fine, and I had already done a scan for viruses. I also just switched processors, I popped in my old p4, but the computer won't boot up. I can get to bios, and the board recognizes the CPU, but windows won't load up. I think it might actually be something with the motherboard... this blows.

Maybe your northbridge/southbridge is too hot. this was a problem for me after a while.

My board rarely goes over 35c and that's after several minutes of full load on both cores...........most times it's between 29-30c.......not sure if that's because of the Silent Cool design of this board, I think my P4P800 ran at about 35 or so also.......

Board in my sig sits at 33°C idle and 47°C load. I have been told by members here that this is normal. Abits can run a lil warm. Asus I am not sure of.
