Another CPU temp thread
I just got done building a comp and the temperature is at about 69C....I turned it off immediatley :0) anyways I am using a Zalman hs+f. I think that it is 6000-cu anyways so it is running really hot. I put thermal grease on there. I am getting my as3 back soon so I will put that on when I get it back but why would it be running so hot?? The case has 8 fans in it and the 90mm fan blowing on the hs. My thermal probe is saying 30C and my Bios is saying 69C...gotta trust the BIOS :0). Any ideas?? Maybe I should reset the hs see if that works.
Also I forgot to plug in my graphics card and on boot up the comp started beeping and gave me a message that said like please plug power into your ATI 9700. The thing is that I bought a 9500:0). Maybe I got lucky and they sent me the wrong part.
By the way system specs:
9500(maybe 9700) 128mb graphics
Chaintech 7-NJS Mobo
X-Superalien Case w/ 500watt PSU

Holy Crap thats hot.
Make sure the HSF is on right.
Sounds like the BIOS is reporting wrong or the thermal sensor is wacked, at them temps I dont think it would even boot.

would flashing the bios maybe fix that if it is a bios error?I don't like signatures.

Jeez...that's near burn up temp because it is usually about 5 degrees hotter than what your sensor is reporting. The burn up temp is 85C. Maybe you didn't get enough grease on it?

I figured out what was wrong with it. I got a zalman hsf and I'm used to having the part u push on towards the PCI slots so i did that so the heat sink was half way off the cpu [mumbling how stupid I am to self] so that was my problem ty for helpDr. Cox -Newbie, Stay.
