  1. Under what circumstances does it heat up? 55 is fine under CPU load (eg Prime95). If the noise occurs in gaming, it's probably the graphics card. You should be able to tell by taking off the side of the case and listening close up.
    What's the model of the PSU?
  2. it wen't to i5c
    power supply Thermaltake TR2 RX 750Q Bronze it's not under any load so it's scary and my internet explorer 9 keeps telling me about dumb certificate on evry website and im locked out of my own minecraft server cause of that u have a fix?

    the noise is my cpu fan, it sounds rattley
  4. Fix: use Google Chrome.

    Rattley? Did you attach it properly? Go look at the instructions. I'm assuming it's stock. It might be a good idea to get a decent third-party heatsink like the $20 Hyper TX3 or the $30 Hyper 212 Plus.

    ? well i don't know it sounds like the fan keeps moving really fast wiggling on the heatsink itself
  6. Is it a stock sink? See what you can do with tape xD

    it seems fine now but anyway the target voltage is 1.28V but it's 3.25V and hot what do i do!!!!!
    is 1.325V to high?
  8. Wait, wait. 3.25 or 1.325? The latter should be fine; the former should have fried your computer. You can change the voltage to 1.28 manually, though, in the BIOS. It should be a pretty easily accessible option.

    Sorry but Google Chrome is a horrible browser. The errors may be date related. Need to make sure your date is correct as certs are active from one day to a certain date.

    The CPU at 1.325v is fine, as is 55c. the stock heatsink is always loud, they are pretty crappy.
  10. Then use Firefox. Whatever. Anything but IE.

    What do you mean? I accedently made my cpu go to 1.8V for about 30 seconds.
  12. I don't know if that should have broken it, but if it's working now don't worry about it.
