Hey, I just recently built my first computer and have been having problems left and right. I have worked through many and am down to just two. First and foremost- My CPU is overheating dramatically. It is an Intel P4 2.8Ghz (Prescott I think, but I am not sure). Immediately after boot the temperature is anywhere b/t 57-61 oC (At least within the time I boot and the time it takes to enter BIOS and check). I have two case fans (120mm and 80mm) running, plus the heatsink fan for the CPU. The fan for the CPU runs at about 2636 RPM's (The case fans don't plug into mobo). I do not know if that is the speed it is supposed to be running at, or the fan isn't getting enough power. One curious detail.. The BIOS is what is telling me the CPU is at 61o, however the monitoring software that came with the mobo says 44o. I'm not sure which is giving me the bad read, either way the temp is too high. I do have a few thoughts: First, I had to remove the heatsink a few times while installing the CPU, mainly to reposition the legs on the heatsink so they could lock into place. I've read that the thermal tape that was on the bottom may become damaged from that. Should I go out and get a paste and reapply? or Second, the CPU fan just isn't spinning fast enough. Could it be a problem with the PSU if that is the case? Any help on the matter is appreciated, I would like to be able to fix this so that I can leave my computer on overnight and download without risking destroying the CPU. Thanks, -Mike P.S. If I can fix this then only one more simple problem to go!!!!
