Thread: Is My Computer Getting To Hot

  1. #1
    When I opened up my computer after it had been running for about 2 hours and I touched my processor to see how hot it was and it burnt the fuck out of my finger. Is it ok to be this hot. Could this be what is making my computer get so many BSOD?

    No&#33; It should never be so hot you cant touch it&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33; What heatsink/fan are you using? What temps are you gettin on the healthcheck on your BIOS?

    and that in degrees c is? my heatsink sometimes is rather hot (only if i run the fan @ lowest rpm though) but my cpu temp is around 40c

    Thats 50-60 degrees C. Not a good temp in my opinion. Sort out your cooling - what heatsink/fan are you using???? Where did you get your pc from?

    I have a Antec heat sink. I only have 2 fans the heat sink and the one built into my power supply. How do you run your heatsink at high rpms?

    50-60 is normal running temperature, if it starts running over that at full-load then its a little worry

    if you want to be safe buy a 80mm case fan from E-buyer only for 5, helps a treat

    Actually, that&#39;s 54-60C, which is on the high side for an Amd processor and way too high for an Intel cpu, in both cases assuming normal usage. Make sure everything is clean in the cooling equipment (particularly cpu fan and heatsink).

    If you remove the heatsink, make sure you remove the old thermal pad with a wooden or plastic scraper followed by cleanser, then either add a new pad or use good thermal paste.
