Ok i have just built a new pc for 1 of my mates
It has an MSI kt4 turbo motherboard with an Athlon 2400+ (the limit of the board says 2800+)
Also the case displays the CPU temp and the system Temp.
Iv built it and everything and the first time i turned it on it said it was only 1800+ in the boot sequence so i thought fair enough i gotta sort out the bios, so i sort out the bios and everything and make the FSB of the board up to 266MHz (which is waht the processor runs at) And so now when it boots it says 2400+.
Ok so now im happy and i installed win xp etc etc all drivers and shit and it seems to be ok...
Now when we load up games like ghost recon or use a program that uses a lot of processing power it works for abt 2 - 3mins then the whole system crashes and i notice on the box that the cpu temp is goingup to like 70/80 degrees. Im not sure how to get this temp down without having to turn down the processors speed...
The case has 6fans in it so i dont see how it can overheat so much unless im doing sumthin wrong in the bios!
Any help or views on this wud b greatly appreciated. Thx
