As fast as motherboard gets hot (in speccy)

 

How hot is 'gets hot' ?  Depending on the processor installed Speccy may report either the core temperature or the motherboard temperature or both.

 

As a guide, processor temperature should NOT exceed 75-80C (175F), motherboard temperatures probably should not exceed 40-45C (110F). For reference, Speccy gives the current temperatures for my system as : motherboard - 28C; graphics processor - 61C; hard drives - 26C.

 

You may have a cooling problem. You say you have cleaned out the CPU box - I presume you mean the heatsink assembly.  Are you certain the fan is working ? If the fan is working, then it the thermal paste between the processor and the heatsink may not be forming a thermal bond and need replacing. Are all the other fans in the system working ?

That temperature should be alright, maybe depends which CPU that you're using. Also are you using a stock Intel CPU cooler (heatsink and fan supplied with CPU) or an aftermarket type?

 

I actually just had this same kind of problem with one of my Pentium 4 machines. There was a constant high pitch noise that sound kind of like worn out brakes on a car. Turned out there was a bad capacitor on motherboard. Luckily I had a spare capacitor of the same voltage and uf rating so I just changed it and now all better. It was starting to give lower vcore and L2 as well as system RAM started running about half speed.

 

My 2 usually are at about 65*C on a socket 478 Northwood core 2.8GHz and about 70*C on a socket 478 Prescott core 3.4GHz. That's for 100% full load though.

 

I use Artic Silver 5 thermal compound on mine, helps keep temperature about 8*C - 10*C cooler than other stuff has. 3.5g tube should cover about 4 - 6 CPUs or GPUs... maybe more if you're thrifty :grinner:

You can purchase it online from Newegg.

 

You shouldn't need more that a drop about the size of a grain of rice.

 

Clean all of the old thermal compound from both the CPU and the heatsink before applying the new compound,

What was wrong? Would like to know the solution :)

 

And you can get thermal paste at someplace like bestbuy or some local electronics store.
