Actually if your system is reporting high temperature, you will need to check for these things below.
It can be due to any of these:
a) bad integration
c) Chassis is not TAC (Thermally Advantage Chassis)
d) BIOS Issues.
Make sure that you are reading the temperature from the BIOS itself.
Steps to try:
Re-integrate the cpu with new clean thermal paste.
Update the BIOS of the board.
If not, fixed, try the system out of the chassis as a test.
Make sure that you have a good PSU as well.
Thanks very much for your suggestions. I did them all except removing from the chassis. I did however, (and have been for over a week) remove the side panel for plenty of ventilation. I also downloaded the Intel IAM monitor which shows CPU temp running at around 118 degrees F. Which, should not produce a problem after an overnight shutdown. I still have to press the start switch several times to get it to catch then continue by using F4. Somehow, there must be a bad sensor somewhere. It can only be from the CPU itself or the MB. Everything still works, it is just annoying.
No worries, i am here to help
Well you said that the CPU temperature is 118F, i think that it seems to be alright for me, 118F = 47.7 Celcius
So depending on which CPU you have, i will tell you to get your CPU model number
Then check the link below for the threshold temperature
All the best,
Followed your lead, Aryan and the CPU is running in range. The Intel temp monitor is showing well within the green, too. I guess it must be a sensor that has failed and causing the error. As long as the computer continues to work, I won't go to the expense of changing out the MB. Thanks for your helpful responses.
Glad to help. Anyway, at least i showed you some of the basic tips that you needs to you when the system over-heats.
All the best,
i could not understand the exact solution here
i am facing the same issue with my machine of thermal overheating.
it automatic restart when the BIOS is loaded. it start and shutdown continuously for infinite times at least for 3-4 min.
then it give the error of overheating and F4 and other options..
My System configurations are
Intel Desktop Board D865GBF
2.99 GHz, 496 MB RAM
i have installed new CPU Heat sink also along with the new Heat paste but it did not worked.
Let me know if you need more info here..
sometimes, due to wear and tear happen on mainboard.. all kind of sign of failure will appear before it went EOL. End of Life.
well.. i would recommend you to update to the latest bios of your baord model. and ...
enter into bios and monitor the hardware monitor page. where yo can see the temp and the fan speed..
run the pc in that mode and monitor until the pc reach to the highest temp and you can confirm your pc is overheating..
if your pc is really overheating, get a thrid party Heatsink fan or etc to replace the intel original fan.. dust clogged up in the ball bearing of the fan may hinder the fan ability to spin faster...
i tried with third party fan but it did not worked
here are some statitics that will help you to give solution
Here are some statistics that will help you
BIOS Version BF86510A.86A.0063.P18
Processor Zone Temp 77C/ 172F
System Zone 1 44C/ 111F
System Zone 2 54C/ 129F
Processor Fan Speed 3040 RPM
Rear Fan 0 RPM
Front Fan 0 RPM
+1.5 Vin 1.454V
Thanks in advance
My 915GEV with a P 4 3.0 GHz CPU lists 39, 28, 28 at desktop and 45 (and rising), 30, 30 in BIOS so your temps are disturbing to me, but I believe your board is older. Some load is relieved by the graphics card. A newer system with recovered Core 2 duo 2.13 and other parts is misbehaving possibly due to PS, monitor or simply frequent changes.
A recent problem with the same MB had immediate shut down after 10-15 sec. No info was ever displayed on the screen and all fans were running. I changed power supply but not the problem. I was about to change MB and CPU until a closer look showed the plastic bracket that holds the heatsink and fan had snapped off one corner. I added some thermal grease and held the assembly down when starting up and system booted w/o a problem. I was able to replace the bracket portion on the MB for $5, which was a bargain to be up and running again. Morale of this story, diagnose as thoroughly as possible before spending money that won't solve the problem.
