I recently built my own computer and all that and it's been playing great, temps were ok and everything, but suddenly while i was playing "the ship" i looked at core temp and it said like 80c, so i go check TaT and it said like 65c or something so i decided to put it in standby mode to let it cool off but now when i try and turn it on it wont turn on at all. Is my cpu fried or what? this was just a little while ago and my cpu is still a bit hot even though its off so im letting it cool right now.
I just unplugged it, and then set up my big house fan beside it and now it actually boots up and everything. Temps down to like 28c, guess ill just leave it there until i get a better CPU cooler this weekend(the one i ordered was backordered 2 weeks so i just installed with default)
This is more a question, Back of my mind (whats left of it) TAT reads 15 C low with new Proc. (6x50). Don't know if they have updated TAT for the new tjunction. If so that would mack coretemp (80C) anf Tat (15C + 15C) agree
80C is way too hot, make sure all the pins on the HS are locked down. Never use hibernate or standby they are fraught with problems. If you computer is to hot etc. just shut it down. In settings just power down the monitor and HD after 20-30 minutes if you want to leave the PC running.
Yeaaah... I'll never be using standby or anything again =P I'll probley just start shutting my computer down when I'm not on it. I turned all my fans from low to high so it shouldnt get too hot like that anymore. Just wondering though, is there any way to directly control the processor fan? It seems to only turn on when the processor gets hot or something. Well time to do a bit of testing on the game that made it overheat this morning =P
