Hi my specs:

Acer Aspire M7721
Windows 7 Ultimate
Intel Core i7 930
8 GB DDR3 RAM
Geforce GTX 480
Motherboard Acer FX58M

For a few weeks now, my PC keeps overheating. It freezes when playing newer games for a few minutes. HW monitor shows a temperature thats above 80°C / 175°F (idle temperatur!). I assume thats the probleme but I just dont know what that temperature is. See here!
Also I can lower this temperature by about 10° by putting a desk fan next to it.
I don't feel anything being that hot when touching the motherboard.

I have already tried the following:

    cleaning PC, there is no dust or anything
    reapplied thermal compound (on CPU, GPU, north- and southbridge)
    reinstalled windows
    airflow is sufficient


Do I need a new motherboard? Thanks.

Hi

Next time build your own computer or go to a local shop to make them build a computer for you.

It might be a bit more expensive but totally worth it.

Now for your problem, if the computer still under warranty you should RMA it, if not, their is not much you can do but change the mobo.

Already changed the thermal paste. I'm just gonna buy a new motherboard, since I don't have warranty anymore. Thanks.
