I have recently purchased a ASUS NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 Graphic Card. However after installing the same, the computer works fine but the processor temp shot up to about 100 deg C in about 10 mins time........wat could be the reason for the same ?
My Spec are :
Intel i5 processor
IBall 400W PSU
1 TB WD Caviar Black 7200 rpm HDD
4 GB DDR3 RAM
Win 7 64bit OS
Secondly is the SMPS sufficient for the config I have or do I have to go for a 500W PSU ?
Thanks.........I did some checking on the connections and the fan on my processor was indeed not working. It has now started working after tightening the connections and the temp now hovers between 35 C - 40 C
Seems like the issue is resolved as of now BTW know any software that can monitor the CPU temp after from the one supplied by Intel utilities ? Tried cputhermometer, but it did not work
bstm400 : Could be a specific card issue. Mine neither runs hot (GPU Temp is in the range of 34 - 37 C) and the fan is quite silent.......Infact this card is supposed to run cooler than the other cards..........and it does (touchwood :-))
