Overheating with 2 CPU's - Page 3

post #21 of 31
Get a bottle of rubbing alcohol and some q-tips, and put the alcohol on the q-tip. Then rub that around on the Cpu and heatsink. The Tim should start to come up. You probably shouldn't do this, but what I do to make it go faster, is then get a paper towel, and rub it on the Tim, to get a large percentage of it off. Then clean the rest of it off with the alcohol soaked q-tip until it's nice and sparkely. Then re-apply some Tim.

Coffee Filter>Qtip Unless you like lint getting into your contact surfaces. Anyway this has all already been stated, please read the thread.

Thank you guys, all your info is appreciated and I will reapply the thermal paste after cleaning it properly. I'm actually on my way right now to purchase an aftermarket heat sink and better paste. Hopefully this will help my issue.

Just make sure it has some sort of fan that way you're not just passively cooling your cpu. If you can find a Hyper 212 or one of Zalman's models you should be good to go.

What do you mean by passive? Like one that turns on randomly? I ended up purchasing one, I'll let y'all know of the results.

It's fixed!! Thank you all for your help! I cleaned the CPU and added a gob of thermal paste, purchased an aftermarket heat sink and when I started up Windows I immediately saw the difference! my temps stay in the low 30's now when I'm doing normal stuff in Windows and in game it stays in the 40's. Man, I am so relieved, I thought it was my new Quad core that was causing the issue. Apparently it was just a really crappy stock heat sink that came with the processor. Thank you to all who helped me on this thread, +1 to all of you. Here are my new stats which include the HIGH that I reached during heavy loads. I also included the BEFORE picture too. The first pic is the BEFORE I got a new heat sink with my idle and HIGH temperature, the second is the AFTER the purchase and clean up of thermal paste with idle and high temperature.

No Problem! Thank you very much! Those temps certainly look MUCH more reasonable for a quad core. Actually very good temps in fact. Now you should overclock it a bit . It's running too cool to not oc it. lol

I know huh? I was thinking about doing that tonight. I have read that it should be pretty safe for me to OC to 3.0 Ghz. It's a Q8400 2.66 Ghz. I'll see what I can get out of it now that I have an actual heat sink that works properly (:
