    More problems!

    heh well i was having some heat problems for some reason. Temps were gettin up from normal 40-42C temps to 45-50C temps. i dont know why, i did not change anything, but they seemed to raise while my case temps stayed pretty much the same. so i set everything back down to defaults so im runnin stock 1600+ @ 1.4GHz runnin at CPU temp : 39C right now. its weird cause i used to be able to get this temp o/c to 1.82GHz @ 1.95Vcore. anyone know why it would do this?

    my case is not that dirty or anything, you think i need to re-apply some AS3?

    Maybe there are some cables who have gotten in the way with the fans? Or maybe it is dust in the heatsink...

    i don't think the problem lies in the compound, but more in a combination of dust/bad airflow...

    Were you doing something in you case and bumped the heatsink. This could cause a small air bubble or uneaveness in the thermal grease and increase temps. These increases can be pretty dramatic if the heatsink is not seating 100% flat any more. Bumping the heatsink is very bad also if you are using a thermal pad. Temps can go up quite a bit.

    Dust in the heatsink can cause truble as could a fan slowing down or room temps changing. I also noticed that the temps on my Duron would spick some times, but I think that was caused by my old power flucuating in power output. After the power supply died, it never did it again.

    Turn down your vcore if you haven't, since you set cpu back to defaults you don't need it up there. Have same ak35 board running with an 1800xp at 1.75 plus using vcool at room temperature I'm at 32c and system at 35.

    well i bumped it back up to what i normally use it at, 12.5 * 145 =1813MHz @ 1.95VCore and it is down to 42C now which is somewhat more normal, i opened the window a tad and temps are down to 24C opposed to 28C with the window closed. its a tad chilly in here but not too bad :P

    Do you really need the vcore at 1.95 for the o/c to work? Think 1.80 or 85 would be more appropriate, the 1.95 does make it hotter.

    Yeah 1.95v shouldn't be needed for 1.81GHz if you have an AGOIA Week 13, Year 02.

    39*C sure is cool though for a chip putting out nearly 100 watts of heat.. I wouldn't be complaining if my temps were 49*C...

    My P4 @ 2.8GHz right now is pumping away at 55*C. Nice and solid and much faster than my Athlon even at 1.87GHz Expensive though
