I'm unsure if I can post this here but I have a problem with my Computer.
I cleaned out my computer earlier and upon switching it on I noticed the fans were gradually getting much louder than they were previously, I found this strange and ignored it and by the time Windows Vista had loaded the fans were at what sounded to be 100%, I shut down my computer immediately and decided to check the temperatures in the BIOS. I started by switching the computer on and looking at the CPU temperature, It looked okay at about 45C, then it suddenly started jumping 47-48-50 all the way up to 60 so I'm not going to leave my computer running at high temperatures when there is no need and I didn't have this problem until I cleaned the dust. The heatsink seems to be on correctly and everything else seems to be in place correctly. I was wondering if anybody had an idea of why my CPU's temperature is increasing rapidly when the computer is just in the BIOS? Any help would be appreciated.
Try checking the cpu heat sink if it is seated properly and if the cpu fan is still running. Overheating could be your problem. If you happen to clean the CPU heat sink and remove it try checking it back see if it is seated properly and reapply thermal paste if necessary.
Overheating shouldn't be the problem with a Non-Overclocked Q6600 and an Antec 1200 case should it? The CPU Fan still runs and I have not taken the heatsink completely off, I have undone the push clips and placed it what I think is correctly and pushed the pins securely, and the problem still occurs. Any ideas?
did you clean the heatsink and apply new TIM? Also are you sure the push pins are fully and correctly fastened to the mother board? The thing really sucks about Intel's method is you pretty much need to remove the mother board and look at the back to verify a good install. What were you getting for temperatures before you cleaned the dust?
I'm not sure on the temperatures but I know at one point I got around 15C on all cores after cleaning dust previously. The pins are fully and correctly fastened and the heatsink will not move at all. With my Antec 1200 I can see the pins and they are correctly fastened. I cleaned the heatsink without taking it off so I didn't apply new TIM.
It's possible you broke the bond between the cpu and the heatsink TIM when you cleaned the dust out. The reading of 13c for system temperature is most likely wrong, that's 55.4 degrees Fahrenheit. Unless your room is under 55f that's not correct.
Yes that was one pesky crumb! Upon checking via RealTemp the temperatures are sitting around 6-10c above the ambient temperature. I was using Everest Ultimate Edition before, one of them is correct and i'm guessing it was probably everest?
