Hello all,
I have a 3/4 year old gigabyte motherboard, onboard graphics + audio, 4gb ddr2 ram, am2 socket, amd athlon x2 6000 (xp 32bit pro). All my voltages, cpu speed are default.
It has been randomly, instantly, shutting down for some time. I have discovered by monitoring the temps that when I do anything 'heavy' the cpu creeps up to around 80º and cuts out. I have recently changed the heatsink for an artic cooling alpine 64 pro rev2, tried with the pre applied paste and manually applied. Cleaned out all the fans, checked airflow in/out case and installed an additional fan (now 5 inc psu). Still the problem remains. I cant even update my drivers/bios etc without overheating. Can anyone please help, I dont know what to do next?

Hi,

I'm only guessing here but if that CPU keeps getting very hot it will cook itself to the point of needing a replacement.

It sounds like you have done everything you should to keep the CPU cool so it may be that it is going bad and there's nothing more you can do until it dies and you replace it.

Not the kind of news you like to get but these are mechanical articles made by imperfect people. :(

The Artic Alphine 64 Pro Rev.2 can only support a maximum of 90W TDP where your CPU is 125W TDP. I suggest the Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo which should be able to handle the heat easily and also add this second fan to the heatsink to further keep the heat down.

One more  thing....

 

 

            after these automatic shutdowns...when you do boot back up. are you getting a bios message to the tune of    "Thermal Event"   if you are, then yes it is your cpu overheating..  if not, then i would look into your power supply as the culprit also.

Thanks for all your advice, I'm going to try the new uprated heatsink first. It makes sense that it should be of sufficient TDP, which I now realise it isn't. Its also the cheaper option and will bode well for the next cpu. Not quite sure how to mount and connect a secondary case fan onto the heat sink (as suggested), any tips much appreciated.

I haven't noticed any thermal event messages after shutdown, unless it was boldly stated I may not have noticed.
The power supply is an OCZ 600SXS2, which is less than 1 year old. Please let me know if anyone knows of any compatibility issues?

Also the motherboard model no is gigabyte GA-MA78G-DS3H and its AM2+ socket not AM2 as previously posted.

Thankyou all again......

maybe some BIOS editions don't report thermal cpu events, mine does upon next boot up.   it isn't a GUI or anything, but looks like BIOS typeface with a solid black screen and  it hangs there waiting for input....also, your POST beeps may indicate what is happening. there is a series of POST beep codes that indicate anything wrong. i think just one or two single beeps indicate   "all systems go"   whereas any variation is code for chinese soup "sum ting wong"  i will look up past topics to find out and report back shortly.

upon further research, found the acronym POST, power-on self test, which is apparently the first thing bios executes....gonna paste the beep codes as i found them.........



Original IBM POST error codes
1 short beep - Normal POST - system is OK
2 short beeps - POST error - error code shown on screen
No beep - Power supply, system board problem, or disconnected speaker
Continuous beep - Power supply, system board, or keyboard problem
Repeating short beeps - Power supply or system board problem or keyboard
1 long, 1 short beep - System board problem
1 long, 2 short beeps - Display adapter problem (MDA, CGA)
1 long, 3 short beeps - Enhanced Graphics Adapter (EGA)
3 long beeps - 3270 keyboard card
POST AMI BIOS beep codes
1 - Memory refresh timer error
2 - Parity error in base memory (first 64 KiB block)
3 - Base memory read/write test error
4 - Mother board timer not operational
5 - Processor error
6 - 8042 Gate A20 test error (cannot switch to protected mode)
7 - General exception error (processor exception interrupt error)
8 - Display memory error (system video adapter)
9 - AMI BIOS ROM checksum error
10 - CMOS shutdown register read/write error
11 - Cache memory test failed
Reference: AMIBIOS8 Check Point and Beep Code List, version 1.71, last updated 7 June 2005
POST beep codes on CompTIA A+ Hardware Core exam
These POST beep codes are covered specifically on the CompTIA A+ Core Hardware Exam:

Beeps Meaning
Steady, short beeps Power supply may be bad
Long continuous beep tone Power supply bad or not plugged into motherboard correctly
Steady, long beeps Power supply bad
No beep Power supply bad, system not plugged in, or power not turned on
No beep If everything seems to be functioning correctly there may be a problem with the 'beeper' itself.
One long, two short beeps Video card failure

thought i would share, when my cpu did meltdown one time, the bios did the long beep short beep thing, like in the list

The CPU cooler also supports AM2+ and the instructions should mention how to install the second fan.
