  • CPU Running Hot

    There have been a lot of these threads lately, this seems a good opportunity to ask for help with my own issue.

    I have noticed that my CPU has been running at unusually high temperatures lately. Actual real photo below.



    If any technical experts can offer advice on what I am doing wrong, it would be much appreciated.

    Make sure everything is powered on correctly, re-seat your CPU and cooler, jump into the bios and then pour this over your entire PC and see if the temps drop.

      Idle, load or both? At the weekend I updated my father's PC from a an i5 2400>2500k so was checking everything out and was surprised that his power setting which had been set to "Samsung high performance" was not letting his CPU down clock at idle. Can only assume his Samsung SSD with their magician software had changed the setting.

      Set power option back to balanced and now lovely cool idle Temps.

      Of course check the normal, dust build up etc.

        Best thing to do is create a million threads on here asking the same question in different ways.

        Some of the heat will be expended in to the forum, and your PC will cool down..

          But what if the forum overheats?

            It's OK.. It's in the cloud, and the moisture will cool it.

                  Have you considered the new Hive system from British Gas, you can turn your central heating off when you plan to use the PC..... remotely.

                        Must be your windows install, I recommend a clean reinstall.

                        Also, I've found a great trick with my case fans, if you set them all sucking air out the case it creates a vacuum where heat can't exist

                          Reminds me of the time some one complained about a hot cpu and they had stuck the Intel sticker on the cpu.
