    cpu issue(s)


    I am trying to chase down a cpu issue(s). Every time i do something that stresses the cpu; the cpu tends to heat up to the warning threshold. I just recently applied to thermal paste to the cpu heat sink and to the cpu cover. Please help me here as normally i can fix things pretty well myself but this one has me stumped. And I dont have the funds to go out and get a new processor which would mean i also have to change out my board to a newer one and i definitely dont have the funds for that either. Thanks matt

    A bit alarming here: "and to the CPU cover"......there is no cpu cover. You only apply the thermal compound to the top of the CPU (pea size and let the force of the heat sink spread the thermal compound out evenly and naturally. If you used more then a pea sized amount then you may have to much which can then cause overheating issues.

    Can you post a picture of what you are referring to about the CPU cover....that has me really worried.

    actually i think i may have solved this one myself as I believe my cpu fan was not seated all the way to the cpu. So with that im gonna mark this as solved as I solved it myself i believe.

    "CPU cover" = heat spreader, maybe? (Intel covers their CPUs with aluminum "heat spreaders". You don't get to see the silicon. Fanatical overclockers sometimes "de-lid" Intel processors to put the heat sink in direct contact with the silicon.)
