    Microsoft generic chipset drivers can cause power problems like overheating - AMD are not the best chip firm to offer regular updates either, but an older suite of chipset drivers or just the correct inf files can better the Microsoft OOTB setup, or some Update foul-up.

    May just need new thermal past applied or the cooling fan replaced.
    I agree with this. I had a issue awhile back where my temps kept skyrocketing even with very minimal programs open and running. It turned out to be just this. So I tore apart the cpu; took the cpu fan off; re-applied fresh thermal paste and problem was solved. You have to apply fresh paste every so often especially after a very long period of time where it has not been refreshed because eventually the paste will start to degrade and dry up and get "crusty", etc which will lead to poor cooling. Granted yes I dont run amd because Ive heard not such good things about them in the past; so I have a i7 processor in mine; but still this can happen with any system if the paste goes bad.

    My old retired rigs, if not defective, go to somebody in need. I just give them away to somebody in need. The ones I give them too just want something to get on the Internet and Facebook etc. They don't have to be very powerful for what they do with them.

    Never say never. An FX 8350 handles those kinds of things like handbrake without sweat but even my 965BE @4 GHz gets pretty choked up although thanks to large aftermarket cooler doesn't get even close to overheating. If you overload even best processor it will have to produce more heat which has to be eliminated. Look at heat almost infinitely more powerful mainframes produce. On the other hand, most of those "Box" coolers coming with processors of any make are usually barely adequate even for normal use. There are so many aftermarket coolers that do much better job with less noise too. That and good case cooling can (excuse for pun) take heat out of equation. Heat is enemy #1 to any electronics.
    If I was you, I would opt to build my own system, to my own specs rather than to relay on some pre-built system as they never put best parts but only ones they make more money on. Brand name makers usually put something "special" in them, also special BIOS that make them difficult to upgrade or repair. If you don't have time or inclination to do it, pay somebody to put it together for you with of the shelf parts, it will surely pay in the long run.

    Hi there

    Getting new Mobo, I7 CPU, new box, PSU,more RAM, new bigger SSD and a couple of large HDD's. Should have fun with that later today.

    The rig is essentially going to be used as a headless media / file server and Internet gateway so I'm not bothering with external graphics GPU. I do want decent SATA HDD's and proper USB 3 ports though.

    I've decided to wipe the old machine, stick the side panels back on again and give it to the charity shop. They can send it away to 3rd world or other places. I'm afraid the Schools here have BETTER equipment than I do !!! so they won't want old stuff.

    Cheers

    That's what I do with my or other computers that I repair but owners don't want it. One difference though, there are many poor kids here and I know a few so they get either outright or theirs upgraded. I don't trust most charity organizations, most of their funds are misused and only small % goes where it should, I prefer helping directly ones I know.

    I prefer to give it to someone I know that needs it and will use it.

    +1.. Give it to someone I know who can make use of it. Best way to go IMO.

    I recently gave an Athlon64 3000+ (1.8GHz) w/ 2GB RAM and an old printer to a poor kid that lives on my street. That old computer is being extremely useful for his school works. That's fulfilling to know that I could help someone!
