Thread: Hot Motherboard

  1. #1
    I recently bought a SOYO motherboard SY-P4VGA (HOME OF THE DRAGON)

    I start up windows and hmonitor beeps my computer like crazy.

    Error:
    Mainboard is over the red zone threshold. Current Temperature: 185.4 F.

    I quickly shut off my computer and felt the motherboard. OMG DANG IT'S HOT!

    I have a WORKING CPU fan. I also have another fan to cool off my system. What's wrong?

    300 Watt Power Supply
    Soyo Motherboard
    Pentium 4
    Western Digital Hard drive (80 gigabytes)
    LG dvd-rom/CD-R
    Intergrated Video
    Intergrated Sound with ac97

    It's still working. I need it to be much colder though.

    I say if you can't get that mobo down in temp, RMA it. What's the warr term on it?

    My manual says 400 watts minmium for full system boot up. I only have 300. Is that the problem?

    Trust me, quote is faster then reply.

    Quote is closer to the psot then reply.

    Are you sure you're putting the right voltage through the mobo?

    That doesn&#39;t answer either of my questions.
    If I had the definitive answer about your PSU & mobo, I would&#39;ve answered.
