My 940BE is running really hot. - Page 3

post #21 of 26
What exactly did you do when you noticed the high temps and loss of performance. Backtrack your steps. How did you have your CPU set up when it was performing OK. It could be a few things, but we need a little more detail on your set up. I would get rid of any software OC utilities, they arent worth the headaches. Get everything back to stock and check all your voltages. Also check to make sure you have a current BIOS. Right now the only two things I can think of is a bad controller on your MB, or you put too much TIM on the CPU. You only need a small (rice grain size) drop of TIM. Too much will make your CPU overheat like crazy.

I haven't done anything, I don't use any, just have AMD overdrive to use it's test. It has been running fine for a month now, and all of a sudden I get huge losses for PPD and such.

One other thing I just thought of. Go to your task manager to make sure that you dont have any background tasks going on. See if your CPU really is at idle. You might have something running or maybe picked up a virus.

Also, uninstall AMD Overdrive, it gave me all kinds of headaches.

My cooler is a Xigmatek Gaia sd1283 which has great reviews and is supposed to be great(friend has his running awesome), and I used arctic silver 5, I applied it well, and I know my heatsink is set up just fine. My card got to 3.6GHz stable for a bit, but it won't even do that. It has trouble getting to 3.5. Is my CPU just a POS or what? Can anyone please help?
dust..

Your CPU may be getting bogged down by other applications/processes. Virus and or malware.

Bounces around 1-3% like it always has.
