    CPU Overheating

    I have a powerful comp. Maybe too powerful.

    It will over heat when playing CA and BIOS will shut down the comp.

    But i can play black ops for hours and have no problems...

    Things i have tried:

    Speed fan (useless, crappy software that does nothing)
    Stacked an extra fan on top my fan for my CPU.
    Leave case open
    added a case fan
    Keep heat sinks clean with air duster.

    Any thing else i can try?

    It takes about 30 mins before it over heats so its not a huge deal but still i cant be good for it.

    When you first start the comp you can hear the fans running really fast and then after a few second it sound like they are about half speed.. it there a way i can hard wire my fans to full pwer from the power supply or something?



    I have
    [4x]2.5GHZ QUADCORE ..... 4 x 2.5 = 10GHZ FTW??
    8GB ram
    Nvidia GT220 with 4 GB of video ram.
    Amercian megatrends BIOS

    Or your heatsink ain't tightly secured to the CPU

    Do that.
    Take your heatsink off and GPU
    clean both to get rid off old stuck on paste.
    Put new paste and put them back on the mobo

    happend to me to, how i fxed was i bought a cheap 15 dollar spray can, AIR compressed can, and CARfully spray ur laptop/desktop fan. Make sure you hold down the fan with a needle while you spray it or else the fan will spin to fast causing it to break, i did that to my comp and it got rid of so much dust and made every thing work again ^_^
