The problem may be due to loose screws on the reverse of the case. There is a safety feature which kills power on Acer laptops when the hardware detects the case is open (and power is on). By tightening the screws on the reverse of the laptop (hard!), the problem magically goes away. Since these screws are self-loosing, this may need to be repeated every few ...

I just took the cover off to clean a pc and low and behold the processor came with the heat sink(sp?) which I had not planned on. Had no thermal paste and first time I have ever actually took a proccessor off ....I just re-attached and it showed a thermal error ...wanted to back-up data and asked which type of reboot I wanted. (normal). So far so good. ...

Do I risk a damage when I try the Banana PI M3 board without cooling down the chips? Not if you are using the provided operating system and standard configuration. It will shut down cores to keep temperature within safe limits. See Quick review of Banana Pi M3

70° is too hot for an AMD chip. Also youre saying that you have a "big and effective radiator" on your CPU. If your temperatures are still this high, there is something wrong with your cooler installation. AMD’s specification of 61°C-70°C is for maximum allowed case temperature (a thermocouple measurement taken on top of the CPU lid); however, one will ...

SOLVED - sort-of. I disabled Turbo Mode in the BIOS - and everything became stable and lower temperature (65-69deg) at 100% CPU load. [I have already re-seated the CPU cooler, upgraded the CPU cooler, returned the original CPU and got a new CPU without resolution] To verify here is Turbo Mode enabled again: Turbo Mode - default Enabled "This item ...

Drag and drop a shortcut to the program (speedfan) over into the Start menu (start orb). Keep the drag going until you have placed it into the "all Programs" and into the "startup" section/folder. (a line will show for the location it will land , dont drop it till you see that) To minimise it, Right click and select properties on the shortcut and set the ...

Go to start, type Run. Type shell:startup copy paste the shortcut of Speedfan in that folder Reboot, it should start once you're in. to remove it, just delete the shortcut.

The detailed supported operating temperature can be found in the componenents' technical specifications. Modern chips are made to support higher temperatures than they did 15-20 years ago, and usually handle temperatures up to 100C (which is critical). I wouldn't worry if a server reached a temperature of 80C when fully loaded, so you should probably not ...

The principle of air cooling, as described well in this ExtremeTech guide, is to create either positive or negative air pressure within the case. Both have pros and cons, and there's tons of disagreement over optimal fan placement, but the point is: bring cool air in, heat it up, and get it out. When you remove the side panel, you disrupt the intended ...

So, you need a temporary solution to cool off your GPU temperature, but you don't need to spend money on it !. Well, the current cooling system that you have can't give you the results that you need. So, you need to think out of the box. I have a bit of crazy idea, but I am sure that can give you the best results. First, since the computer case is a mid ...

Here is a little trick: The way your fans are currently set up you will be creating a negative pressure inside the case. Your chassis fan and your PSU fan are both pulling air from inside the case to the outside, meaning that cooling air is being pulled into the case through gaps in the case. You want to create a higher pressure inside the case instead - ...

If you plan on cleaning Dust out of a computer i would use a can of Compressed air or a hoover of some sort, i'd never spray anything else on something electronic like a computer! Here's a link to some compressed air ...

Basically there's multiple headers for fans on a motherboard, and while electrically and functionally identical, the CPU header is monitored seperately, since a non functioning CPU fan would be very bad. If you plugged it into the "aux" or "opt" header - meant for things like "push pull" cooler configurations or water pumps or a "cha" header, meant for ...

My all in one computer quit working after uploading windows 10, I took it in to be repaired and the motherboard was burned up from the computer over heating after running for hours on end to load windows 10. The Tech guys said it is a common problem when loading windows 10 as the fans can only cool so much heat being generated. The tech guys said that there ...

I would suggest that provided the fan is in its TDP envelope (ie the CPU is rated above the reported temperature), you should be running it at full speed as long as the job requires. Specifically I put to you that giving it breaks is a bad thing, because a lot of damage occurs through the heating and cooling - rather then when its in once state, and ...

It's entirely possible that you aren't pushing hard enough. Sometimes this takes more pressure than people expect. I would suggest supporting the back of the motherboard while trying to stick it in. You may also find it useful to point a camera at that pins when you attempt the install so that you can look at the problem from an angle you might otherwise be ...

make sure they are pointed out when installing. pop each pin in a diagonal fashion to ensure that one side isn't completely seated before the other. if you cannot get it with the board installed in the case. pull the board and then try on a plastic surface, preferably using the esd bag the board came in underneath to prevent static discharge. once you ...
