  1. Hi :)

    That heat sink needs re-cementing (after cleaning off old cement) properly...

    All the best Brett :)

  5. What cooler you using ? Is the fan spinning faster as the cpu heats up ?

  7. That cooler should work well enough on that cpu , either it is not mounted right or you have to much paste , air bubble .
    What are your temps in the bios ? Maybe the other programs are reading it wrong ?
  8. thats ok i found the problem.... im on my laptop now because my powersupply just went up in smoke no joke it fried...
  9. to many volts to the cpu will get those temps up , that and fry things . What psu did you have ?
  10. now you know why it comes with this
    "features Scan Disk Free protection to prevent CPU data loss. "
    Rhino , never heard of it
  11. Read the guide.
