I have decided to clean my computer. I opened it, removed the fan from the CPU and cleaned it. It was jammed with a lot of dust. After I put it back, and it rotates much smoother and better, I started to get CPU over heat error. I never got it before. It's a bit ironic that after cleaning the fan my computer hangs and send a CPU over heat error. After restart it says "
CPU overheat, press F1 to continue".
I think of two options:
1. I miss located the fan over the CPU and so it really overheat.
2. I somehow ruined the heat detector and it thinks it's over heating.
I even tried to disable CPU temperature monitoring in the BIOS, and yet, the computer auto-restart and says CPU overheat.
What can I do?
How can I know that I have placed the fan correctly?
How to know if the temperature detector is OK?
The computer I have is ASUS pundit 350:
