Hey guys, im new to the forum and I have finally broke down for help. My CPU keeps overheating and there is the right amount of thermal paste and everything inside is cleaned, fan, heatsink, etc. Whenever I start to play any game, the temperature slowly rises then my computer crashes about an hour later and when i reboot the motherboard tells me that i've pretty much over heated.
when I idle i'm at a womping 45c, then when i'm in game it can reach almost 80c which I really hate to see. Should i invest in a new cpu fan and heatsink or one or the other?

my specs: asus m5appx evo motherboard

4gb ram

AMD Radeon HD 6800 Series
AMD Phenom™ II X6 1100T Processor
windows 7

gaming on your pc is a perilous adventure, my first guess is the GPU is not understanding the requirements . check out your video card parameters and research your best hardware compatibility.

im pretty sure its not my gpu, this all really started when i switched motherboards because my other one died.

How is the ventilation in the case? Do you have an intake and exhaust fan? If the heat that your CPU is producing can't escape you could have an $80 cooler and still have heat problems...

i have a huge intake fan on my case, like almost the size of a frisby, and an intake on the top of the case, exhaust on the back on the case, would it be a good idea to maybe disconnect the frisby fan?

The Intake on the top of your case should be an Exhaust, flip er around. Heat rises, so you are preventing it from escaping and essentially blowing hot air on your CPU cooler. Keep me posted :)

AMD recommends the temperature should not be over 62C(143.6F) although the CPU itself can take about 70ishC(158F). Have you overclocked this CPU and have you tried reseating the cooler? I have a very similar CPU like you the 1090T which is only 100mhz difference and depending on the cooling solution you have, at load around i average around 55C(131F) which is fine considering i bumped the voltage to stabilse the overclock.

i've never overclocked at all, i just reapplied the thermal paste 2 days ago, so the heatsink was off.

fan on chipset needs to blow onto heatsink, whereas the case fan(s) are more like exhaust, blowing OUT the hot air from inside the cabinet. can you post your speccy readouts? a mobo changeout could also be incompatible with your GPU. load up GPU Caps Viewer and post those readouts as well. it might also be a PSU concern, what is your wattage/rail ? use HW Monitor also.

Are you using the stock heatsink or is the fan of the heatsink damaged in anyway?

What is the ambient temperature in the room the computer is placed in?

sometimes it can get ridiculously hot in here, but since its winter its cooled down, i'd have to say during winter it gets to be about 65~70 degrees, then during summer it can be about 75~80 in here. the rooms not too big, its about the size of someones laundry room, also theres 1 other computer in here besides mine as well with 2 xboxes, so heat does really build up in here when theyre all running at once.
