    URGENT! CPU Temp too high???????

    hi,

    First of all I would like to say that this is my 1st post and I am so glad to have found this forum. Keep up the good work!

    Okay....I've recently built my pc and I'm having some problems. The system seems to be pausing for like a split second, each time i do anything. So after leaving the PC off overnight, I got up and 1st thing in the morning switched on and accessed the BIOS.

    The hardware monitor is showing the temperature at 65C and its still rising at 0.5C every five-ten seconds.

    Since I've not built an Intel system in years, I don't know what is an average temperature for an E6300 core 2 duo (without overclocking). I'm worried as this seems too hot for a pc which has just been switched on!

    One thing I must point out, is that when I was building the PC, the fan wouldn't clip onto the motherboard properly and although I have managed to sort this out, it seems a bit lose. If you think this might be the reason for the heat issue, can you please recommend me a cheap but good fan...i plan to overclock in the near future.

    Last of all, since typing this msg, I ran the Asus Probe software and i am totally baffled with the CPU as it drops to a low of 49C-55C.

    But the BIOS is always starting off at 65C+ and reached upto 71C within 2mins before I decided to switch off pc. The fan runs between 1500rpm to 1700rpm.

    Do you still think its the fan or shall i assume a bug or software issue?

    Are there any settings I need to change in the bios as I thought that the bios automatically sets everything?

    PC SPEC:-

    Intel E6300 Core 2 duo (not overclocked)
    Standard CPU Fan
    ASUS P5B motherboard
    1GB Corair RAM
    320mb point of view 8800GTS graphics card
    2 x 250GB Hitachi HDD


    Many thanks for helping

    idle temp is 25 degrees on my work e6300 with step speed on and that has passive cooling

    get an arctic freezer 7 pro for about £12 anywhere

    I would say your HSF isn't on properly as you seem to have had trouble with it

    yeah the intel HSF can be a bit fiddly and temps like that do suggest its not seated correctly. Take the HSF off, check there isnt too much or little thermal grease and then clip it back on ensuring all clips 'click' in place.

    agreed, heatsink has to be 110% on right or temps will go silly.

    Remove the motherboard from the case, use a bit of cardboard, re-seat the cooler, supporting the cooler turn the board over and check all the pins from the cooler are showing and are in place. There are flanges in place to hold the cooler in place.

    If you have damaged or it is not holding in place then get the AC Pro 7. That fits in the same way ie push pins. There are very clear instructions in with the AC Pro. In fact as the guys have said you may as well invest the 12 quid and get a better cooler anyway

    Yes, dump the stock cooler, and, as already suggested, grab a freezer.

    WOW!

    Thank you so much guys for your speedy replies. I've decided that I might as well replace the HSF as I want to be able to overclock soon.

    I couldn't find the recommended HSF, so could you guys kindly help me choose from this site as I'll go to them tomorrow and purchase one:-

    cclonline.com

    Please bear in mind guys that I need to overclock later, so the HSF must be able to keep the temperature down quite a bit if possible...my budget is upto £30 max

    Oh before I go, there is one more thing that baffles me...the Intel Thermal Analysis Tool and the Asus Probe II software show the CPU at a temperature of between 47c and 54c, yet the BIOS is showing the temperature 65c plus...why is the bios showing such a big difference? And do you still think i have a problem with the HSF?

    http://www.cclonline.com/product-inf...rr-pch-s9u1-gp

    http://www.cclonline.com/product-inf...tid=scinf-1000

    Personally i would stretch a few quid over budget and go

    http://www.cclonline.com/product-inf...=0&tid=nh-u12f

    or

    http://www.cclonline.com/product-inf...d=0&tid=ninja+

    thanks for helping biscuit...the reason i want it from that site is because their shop is only a few miles from where i live, so i can get it first thing tomorrow.

    My intention as said before is overclocking at a later stage, so would any of the above be good for heavy o/c?

    The C2D chips are pretty good for temperature, you can get pretty good oc's on the stock cooler so any of them should be fine.

    thanks for letting me know mate...since we're on the subject of overclocking, can you advice me if the Asus P5B mobo is any good?? FYI, my mobo is standard and not a deluxe version.

    refer to the Masters ie Clunk's overclocking guide. Its based on his P5B and yes it will overclock well. Although you will always get variables ie 1 cpu from one week will produce different results to another weeks production
    Cooling, case chipset lots of reasons why you may not get the same result as another.
