Heating problem Tags: Heatsinks Fan Heating Overclocking Last response: July 7, 2007 8:37 PM in Overclocking Share Deth213 June 26, 2007 9:00:05 PM Hello, I have PentiumD 805 (2.66) with an intel fan. A couple of days ago i removed the HS and fan in order to clean them, and returned them afterwards. A few days later my cpu temp. began rising, its now 55 in idle, and the fan is at 4000RPM instead of ~2500-3000RPM. Maybe by removing the HS i've damaged the thermal greeze texture or something like that ? Or any other ideas ? Thanks in advance More about : heating problem bc4 June 26, 2007 9:23:20 PM You should definitely clean off all thermal grease with a coffee filter and then re-apply.

You can see the same effect on my Q6600 in this thread: dropped by an average of 2.3 °C after about 300 h of use. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources Over Heating problem ....
