Default Hardware issue (once again)

@ED
The proc came with whatever AMD uses for thermal paste already on the
heat sink. Thought I'd leave well enough alone.


@compdoc
It hadn't occurred to me to check the CPU temp - but I will from now on.
Thanks.
I've always left the setting for shutdown temp at the default. What
would you suggest as a more appropriate number? The machine is in an air
conditioned home but the room does get a bit warmer than the rest of
the house.


BTW I had checked for a BIOS firmware upgrade but this board has the
latest version - 1702 - at least from what my search found.


Turns out the keyboard was the issue. I've got another wireless that
worked fine plugged in directly, then moved it to the KVM and all is well.


Thanks, everyone, for all the input.

Low end fan and heatsink and low end thermal paste. I would suggest you
replace both. You can get a decent one for about $20-$30. Maybe even less.

Might I suggest some of that artic silver love mmmm...hmmmm

Concur. I brought the PC I'm typing on back from the dead with a £12
Arctic Cooling Freezer Pro. All the other spares were free - that was
the sole spend. Still running like a champ >18mth later.

If you ever make to my part Illinois, I'll buy you a prize,
beer/tea/coffee or whatever floats your boat.

In the meantime, you'll have to settle for a virtual one.

Thanks much!

Most welcome... though in this case, I patted myself on the back
prematurely. Compdoc called it first. (Just had to look under the
memory vendor list discussion.) Prize to him!

Ahhh... well then, a virtual libation of your choice to both of you.

I'd make the same sort of suggestion about processors as I did about
graphics cards - do you really need a high end one? I bought an OEM
packaged so-called energy efficient AMD X2 I think it's called, and this
OCZ heatsink that somebody said was good. Turned out to be a massive
aluminium vanes on copper rods affair with a nice big fan that turns
slowly enough to be inaudible and the whole thing runs almost cold. The
PSU is an Antec Earthwatts 80+ job and I really can't feel any heat in
the exhaust air.

$30 is hardly high-end, it's just mid-range really good most of the
time, I paid $120 for my on air CPU cooler (it was built to add air flow
around the memory too) and almost 3x that much for high-end liquid.
$30 goes a long ways when it comes to keeping your CPU cooler, that is
when it comes to normal-user high-loads.


Since I don't know the model of OCZ I can't help you other than to
suggest you hook it up to direct power out of control of the Mobo to
test it and disable cool-n-quiet (which will allow you to kick your fan
up to full RPM). Just because a fan doesn't blow full RPM doesn't mean
your CPU isn't cooler too, please base your suggestions on fact, not
personal experience that so far seems to be that of misconfiguration or
user error.
