Overheating of amd 4400+/6600+

Hi All,

I am sorry to bother you but kindly help me on this.

I had brought AMD 4400+ in july 2007. It was working fine till few days back. It suddenly started overheating and shutdown specailly while playing games. I had checked in bios after shutdown, temp is as high as 115 degree celsius for processor. So, i had brought a new processor 6000+. But it is having the same problem. Although temp is around 80 degree, vcore voltgar increased up to 1.87 (max allowed 1.80) and it shutdown again.

My config is AMD 4400 + 6000+
ASus M2N SLI MB with palit Nvidia 8600GT 512 MB
Ram 4 GB
HDD 250 + 500 (both sata)
Power supply 450 W

Where should i look for error.

Thanks in advance.

  1. Make sure your CPU fan is working properly. Could be it's not spinning fast enough or that the MB CPU Fan port is not working properly. Just run it with the side panel open to see if it's spinning the way it's suppose to. Also clean for dust bunnies ^_^
  2. the vcore went up to 1.8?!?!?!?!? thats more than enough to fry your cpu...be very careful not to ruin that new 6000+...maybe ur mobo is messed up
  3. also does your psu handle the power , is it a good brand ,
    or check the mobo ,maybe there is a problem that can be spoted ,a loose capacitor/condensator or something
  4. Thanks for your replies friends....

    CPU fan is working fine. IT is running at around 5400 rpm....
    Both cabinet fans and PSU fan (2 fans) are also working fine....

    I will go to the vendor tomorrow to get him check the MB...

    Lets see where the actual problem be...
  5. V core 1.8 on a CPU? I'm not familliar with AMD's normal volages, but that sounds wrong, and dangerous.
  6. Looking at NewEgg, 1.35-1.4V is the vcore range on the 6000+ Windsor 3.0GH. So something is screwed up.
  7. please install dual core optimizer and latest processor drivers from AMD site

    also check that the thermal paste is not dired out
