check the shutdown temps in the Bios as well, these by default are quite low and need to be changed when a system is built. If you are getting 110 degrees in your CPU I think you should be rather concerned though.

xpd: That or if you have the time before it shuts down, go into the BIOS and tell it to load the Defaults.


I would rather not, as it might shut down while the BIOS is being wrote to, and I do not wish to damage my BIOS.

ok will do yeah i am really worried about the cpu i just hope that the temp it says is false i would of thought it would shut down before it reached 110c

ronindanbo: ...if you are getting 110 degrees in your CPU I think you should be rather concerned though.


I'd say so. Those CPUs should be idling around 30C and have a safe max around the mid 60s. (Unless the BIOS is giving temps in degrees F  in which case about 140F would be a safe max ?)

animebuster, have you swapped this processor into a new board or just lifted the whole board assembly into a new case without touching the processor? If it's just a new case then difficult to see how the thermal interface could have been disturbed.

Other possibilities are a board switch/jumper being accidentally changed in the move (if that board even has physical "switches") or maybe the processor not quite seated (seen that cause a CPU to get very hot, very quickly and not run for long !!)

But if that was a real degreesC number then I'd want to be checking all physical possibilites without putting a power supply anwhere near it !

thanks

I took the motherboard, processor and ram straight out of my old computer. Without disconnecting the motherboard, processor and heatsink. the only new things are the case, power supply and graphics card.

I will have a look and see if the board has any switches/jumpers and if i accidentally switched something. When i get my new thermal grease i will make sure the cpu hasn't somehow been moved out of its socket under the heatsink.

On Wednesday I'm going to exchange my power supply for a new one because the power supply I have had obviously been dropped before i got it and could be faulty? and I'm going to get new thermal grease tomorrow

hopefully changing the power supply and thermal grease will solve this :)

I guess if the PSU has been dropped it could be supplying an incorrect/unstable output voltage, but I'd expect it just wouldn't work.

If you get to dis-assembling the heatsink and re-applying the thermal grease, pay attention to the very good link posted earlier and understand how it works - it's not like icing a cake, too much of the stuff will do way more harm than good. And bear in mind not all processor/cooler assemblies even need it so probably worth double-checking the specs on the cooler/heatsink assy.

good luck !

thanks, I have downloaded the pdf that OmniouS posted and im pretty sure the heatsink and cpu needs thermal grease as it came with some.

I guess we will see on Wednesday whether the power supply or cpu is the problem hopefully it will fix it

I just installed the new power supply and thermal grease and all seems to be working awesome. Cpu temp didn't go above 57 in bios there must of been a fault with the power supply.

Thanks so much for all your guys help!!!!!
