Hello there everyone I am a new member in need of some help and assistance on this matter.
Before I start, here are my PC specs:
AMD FX-6100 Six Core Processor, 3.30 GHz
64bit Operating System.
Windows 7 Home Premium
Not sure how to find any other information.
I have got a desktop, which was custom made for me a couple of years ago and never had a problem with it until now. It has shut down on me twice in a matter of a few days apart. First time it shut down on me was on Thursday, and then it did it again last night. I decided to clean it out and it seems to be going all right today but just have a feeling it could end up doing it again.. I did download a app called Speed fan and my speed on the fans were good apart from 2 which was my CPU and my AUX?
My CPU was on 74c and AUX is on 128c but drops to 45c at times and then back up. Is the CPU too hot? Is there any way of getting this down? I have checked all the fans and they all are running fine.
Any help would be grateful as I can't afford to buy a new desktop.
Edit/fix? - I managed to go into my control panel and changed the power options. It was on Max performance but I put it down to balanced and waited a while and the temp of the CPU fan is now down to 40c. Would have have been the main problem and would my PC be ok now?
Edit 2 - It goes up to 70c when I start to play a game using an emulator? Maybe due to it using my graphics card, I play Football Manager which uses no moving graphics at all and the CPU stays around the 40's. Is it safe when it's in its 70's while I game?
