[HELP] Temp Problem @ E4400 2GHz - 73°

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello,
Firstly I am sorry for my bad English, I use "google translator" in order to convey my message guiltysmiley.gif.
That, my computer is 3 years old now and my cpu has never been overclocked, and for two days, my CPU overheats. I almost try everything but nothing workeda, I opened the box, add fan, clean the cpu fan, add a new thermal paste, The bios update ...
CPU temperature exceeds 70° when I run TAT (Thermal Analysis Tool) and do not fall over 40° in IDLE.

And here's some information:
Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP3
Intel DG31PR
Intel Core 2 Duo E4400
Intel Core2CPU 4400 @ 2.00GHz
10.0 x 200.0 MHz
800.0 MHz
2000 MHz
1.325 V
NVIDIA GeForce 9400 GT (1024 MB)
MAXTOR STM3250820A (250 GB, 7200 RPM, Ultra-ATA/100)
2GB (DDR2-667 DDR2 SDRAM)

Up plz !

In my opinion the temperature isn't really that big. TAT is known to push CPUs pretty hard, it isn't a realistic load. Try running 3DMark and monitor CPU temps to see how much it would heat. It would probably hardly go over 60°C.
If your cooler is the Intel HSF that came with the processor, the temperature isn't bad. To get lower temps you should get another cooler or improve on the case airflow.

Yes, I use the original Intel fan, I will launch the 3Dmark test and try to see after. But just to know, when the temperature exceeds 60° my computer starts lags and FPS drop too.

Et merci pour le welcome biggrin.gif

Ok, so you have a possible solution to your issues: changing the stock Intel HSF. For the lower end processor it's nothing alse than a tiny piece of aluminum and in my view they can cool a processor well enough only if the case airflow is really great (which it rarely is).
You can also improve case airflow, you mentioned you added another case fan. You may have to add some more and/or tidy up the cables so that they don't block airflow in the case. You should post some pics with the inside of your case, we may give you one or two ideas.

Maybe you can try pressing the heatsink down a bit. I know for a fact those stock heatsinks are a pain to put in. Maybe it got loose and is not fully touching the CPU. That temp seems pretty high for load, so that's my theory.

I had the exact same issue last week. My CPU was idling @ 60 Celsius and under load it was reaching @ or above 100 Celsius. I replaced the stock heat sink that came with the CPU, cleaned the thermal paste off of the CPU and added a little glob of it. My temp's are back to normal and in the low 30's now smile.gif

try a good cooler like the cooler master hyper 212 plus. you can put 2 fans on it.
