I have an Intel Desktop Board with an Intel Pentium D processor installed. My problem is that the processor stays warm when idle i.e. 55 degrees C . But under load the temperature rises drastically i.e. a scorching 76 degrees C.Similarly the CPU Heat Sink Fan spins extremely fast thus emitting a lot of noise.
I have well applied the thermal paste (Silicon Thermal Tape) but no improvements.I had noticed the v12 voltage operating at v10.55. This situation had been for quite sometime. Until then i borrowed my friends Intel Dual Core processor and installed it.
To my surprise it worked well with temperatures at 37 degrees C both at idle & load time.Similarly the v12 voltage improved and operated at v11.88 So my question is that is it the fault of the processor entirely or some other fault regarding the motherboard or PSU voltages. Similarly if i need to change the processor then suggest me a gaming processor 3.00 GHz and above.
My Computer Specs are
- Intel D945GCCR Motherboard with 800 Mhz FSB,
- Intel 945 Chipset,
- Intel Pentium D 945 Presler CPU, 3.4 GHZ, 4MB L2 cache, 800 MHz in an LGA 775 Socket,
- Nvidia Geforce 7600 GS Graphics,
- 2 GB DDR2 SDRAM,
- 500 GB Internal HDD.
The Dual core processor I tried was a Intel Pentium Dual Core E5700 Wolfdale CPU ,3.0GHz, 2MB L2 cache,800 MHz.
