i got the gigabyte GA-MA78GM-S2H motherboard with the athlon 5000+
cpu and the problem is that my system always shuts down as soon as the cpu is running at more then 80 percent workload. Every time i boot my system the pc health shows a cpu temperature of 50°C wich ofcourse has to be wrong because the system is idle at that point. I use the stock settings for my cpu : 2.6 ghz and 1.35 V I noticed when i decrease the speed to 2.00 Ghz and the voltage to 1.15 V only then i can use my system normally.
Is this a fault of the motherboard or is there a problem with the cpu that prevents using the cpu at stock settings? And if the motherboard is the problem is there some kind of bios hack?
I use one sata 300 harddrive 7200 rpm from western digital and for the graphics
i use the build in 780 G to make my system more enery efficient.
The cpu uses the stock heatsink from amd and my power supply is 350 watt from chieftec (model rev: s1f ) I returned my system before the the local pc shop and
the heatsink has been tested. I touched it before and it is not hot at all !
1) is likely the culprit, your CPU can easily be 50°C at idle if either: your fan/sink retaining mechanism is not fully engaged on all four pins, or your TIM application was ineffective; pull your MOBO; flip it over; check all four pins for proper engagement. Usually, an inner pin expands an outer retaining 'spade profiled' mechanism, and then rotates to lock; four out of the last five people (with similar problems) that I've advised about this have found - oops! - a loose pin (or, in one case - two)! Do not attempt engage the pins sequentially; do the two diagonal corners first, then the other two corners...
i have checked all 4 pins, no problem there ! As for the TIM application, it was already redone when i returned my system to the local pc store to rule out a ineffective application
anyway, thanks all for the quick reply If there is nothing left anymore to do i leave the system running like it is but if anyone can help
me please send me a message.
