Hello,

I have computer which switches off due to CPU overheat !!

Here is the readings from the BIOS POWER

Suspend mode - Auto
Repost Video on S3 resume - No
ACPI 2.0 support - No
ACPI APIC support - Enabled

APM Config

Power mode button - ON/OFF
Restore on AC power loss - Power off
The rest options were disabled

Hardware monitor

AI quite - Disabled
CPU temperature - 103 C/ 218 F
MB temperature - 25 C/77 F
CPU fan speed - 2500 RPM
CPU Q-Fan control - Disabled
Chasis fan1 speed - 1804 RPM
Chasis fan2 speed - 1917 RPM
Chasis Q fan control - Disabled

So is there anyway that I can reduce the CPU temperature apart from opening the system and cleaning it manually. I doubt sooner system will be on fire :thumbsup:

Thanks

You might want to make sure that you've got some thermal paste in between your heatsink and your CPU, and that your heatsink is securely fastened.

If your CPU is running that hot, I would check to see if the heatsink is properly applied!!!
As far as your options, you don't have any other choice but to open up the case and check everything out. There could be a number of options as to why it's
overheating so much. Here's a couple of tips
  • make sure the cpu fan is turning correctly
  • make sure the heatsink is fastened correctly
  • make sure the thermal grease isn't dried up, if so you'll have to reapply some fresh grease
Let us know what you find.
