PC overheats after BIOS upgrade - Page 3

post #21 of 41
dont worry about the beers,i dont drink alcohol myself(i use it to cool my pc),
the rep+ button is a virtual beer token though

Plus(and much more importantly)
What you learn now you can help others with in the future,we all start somewhere right?

Each one Teach one!


please fill in your specs though!
they are in this forum not your BIOS (its been a long day!)

1)Click on user CP,its at the top of THIS screen,6th from the left.
on the right hand side you can see a heading entitled System Information,
Add System....fill in your system details please

Sooo
when you put the pea sized blob on the processor,
push the heatsink down onto it right away and kind of move it round in a circular motion to spread it a bit whilst maintaining pressure
(this will avoid any air bubles stopping the coupling of processor and heatsink whilst ensuring good coverage and spread of paste),
then centralise the heatsink and push one clip down the roll the handle on the other end once its latched into place to secure it.

Their are so many guides and threads about how to apply the paste etc,what paste to use and how much each one decreases temps etc
you could easily spend your 2 hours reading up on it!

This is an extremist forum for extremely extreme extremists though =)

Push the paste tube until you get a blob in the middle of the processor,push the heatsink down and clip it in,plug in the fan and turn the computer on!

^That!
A pea sized dot is almost too much,but the excess will usually spread out.
Filling out your PC's specs in the User CP>system info>add system, really helps when you need some assistance. When the PC is turned on the thermal paste will heat up and fill in more of the microscopic gaps in the metal on the CPU and heatsink. Btw Zumlah,are you using the AMD factory heatsink,what paste do plan on using? Any brand is just fine,and much more effective than the factory applied stuff.
EDIT- Saw what the OP posted,the dynex paste is fine but only apply the pea sized dot,do not spread it.

Ok all sorry for the late reply. I cleaned EVERYTHING and added the thermal paste to the heat sink and placed everything back into place. Now I did a stress test when I first started my PC and it passed great.
However, the power supply box is getting hot and I can smell the PC is heating up again. I have added as much system info I know about, I am missing a great part here but I just don't know the other stuff on my system.
And yes I am using the factory heatsink. Everything asides the ram which is GSkill now is all factory parts.
I am back at square one I guess, because I am afraid once I load up a game the PC will shut down on me again.
When I upgraded my BIOS I went step by step via the manual and it rebooted great. I have however something saying " Unleashing enabled " and I was told my mobo doesn' support that.
Do you guys think I may need to change some temps or hmm what else could I do to not have a hot PC again?

Thank you all so very much for showing and walking me through this stuff, I added the rep points to all of you even though I am not sure what it does, lol.

Well it was nice while it lasted.....my machine when turned on wont start W7, it rolls and searches but takes me to W7 screen with F8 button to repair it. Which I did and it can't be repaired, so it does this all over again and I am fed up right now!

I don't think this damn PC can be saved, I had it for a year from Cyberpower, the power supply box was burning hot, didn't shut down but I guess it would have if I would have been able to actually run it.

I need a new PC... I am so frustrated.

I think the "Unleashing Enabled" means Core unlocker is turned on,but i'm not sure. Core unlocker is something that can enable cores that are sometimes locked in a AMD CPU. If you're lucky,your X2 can get unlocked into triple or quad core. However most of the time these core are bad and locked off because they can cause errors.

1.Something got corrupted,or the BIOS messed up stuff. You can remove the CMOS battery (round shiny thing on the motherboard) for about 10 minutes, and hold the power button for a few seconds. This resets some motherboard settings,but I don't know if that will make it go back the original BIOS.

2. You may have a bad power supply.

Yea I did the battery removal before, forgot to do this tonight but just took it out.
I think I do have a bad power supply but I don't know if I can change this myself or have to take this to a shop, since someone said earliar not to open up power supplies...

The powersupply is removed from the PC case,no need to take apart the power supply itself. The power supply box comes out with 4 screws on the back of the case, and you disconnect some cables from the motherboard. If you search around the forum,i'm sure you'll find how to replace one,installing one is also the same procedure.
If not,you can label each cord,or take plenty of pictures where each one went.
This video might be a little helpful,

ok well it would seem that your bios in causing an issue here,have you checked its not increased your voltage,or disabled c1e + cool and quiet?

Can you turn on the computer and run it with the side case off to check exactly where the heats coming from?
It is possible the "on load" strain is showing up your psu to be defective.
i would imagine the unwillingness to run windows is due to heat and the processor struggling before its even got past bios.
when you turn your pc on,press delete to enter bios and monitor the temperatures in the bios please

keep it simple boys,is your psu fan blowing?
why are you recommending him to change his tim when he temps are fine?
32c is standard for that proc and his NB is fine also...100+ for the mainboard is too much but not something that will change from a TIM replacement.
OP,check your PSU fan and clean your filters.

zumlah said he can feel the heat coming off it
also thats the direction i was heading in with "case off,where is heat coming from"
they mentioned having cleared the psu fan out and having had the pc for a year,thats abit short for psu failure no?
