Recently my system hangs while playing games en with big loads. Then I have checked the system and the CPU Fan didn't cycle very hard. So I dismantled the Thermalright cooler en fixed it. It rans like a charme!
I also checked the bios settings and guess what...the VCORE Voltage is very very high! 4 volts! and also the V 3.3+ the V 5+ and the V12+ are too high?! each + 3 or 4 volts too high!
What can I do? Is this a motherboard malfunction? The CPU temperature is 60 C degrees when I do nothing. I also checked the GPU temperature and it's up to 60 C degrees as well.
So does anyone knows what the problem is?
I have the ASUS P5N32-E SLI with the Q6600. I upgraded my computer and gave this one to my dad. I also put in an old nvidia card from moms computer for the time being. Today i upgraded to a ati 5450, he does not play games. anyway I got a hardware warning. The strange thing is I got exact same values
Vcore = 4.16
3.3v = 4.08
5.0v = 6.85
12v = 16.32
CPU = 128* C
M/B = 128* C
I tested the supply with a multimeter and voltages were fine there. I reset the cmos, i unplugged everything not needed and put back the old video card with out any change. I set the values to ignore so I dont get the prompt. I put back the new video card, unplugged the cpu power connectors from mobo, unplugged the 24pin power connector, put them back in, and i jiggled the head sink, the chipset, i pushed in the cmos chip, jiggled all the capacitors and relays, I tried to get all the squared things. I think i remember once associating those with having something to do with the current control. anywho i touched and jiggled anything i could see lol. turned on, it said cmos values unreadable load defaults. I guess something reset the cmos, anyway i went over to hardware management and the values were once again correct and cpu temp detecting properly. Not sure what did it but the problem is solved for now.
I was worried that this error will deter my dad from switching over to a new computer with a new windows os. anyway hope this helps someone.
Oh ya dont make fun of me but jiggling stuff on mobo is a technical term. its the evolution of kicking the computer violently from back in the P75-133MHz days. Now I just have to fix three of these bsy error seagate hard drives. Just waiting on my cable.
