Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

My motherboard is over heating temp upto 80 to 90 & fanspeed 3229 rpm what is solution


Answers :

Good morning! It depends on your processor and GPU (video graphics). Every processor has its own temperature ranges and operating limits, 50 C is typical for a normal Pentium or E, Q type Intel duo or quad core. AMD can run a little higher around 55 C. The Intel quads tend to run cooler when you have a 45 nm tech processor like a Q9400 or above. Anything on a 65 nm processor is going to run hotter. AMD tends to pull more watts (Intel around 95 Watts), while the Phenoms can pull up to 140 watts, since they are still on a 65 nm die. 80-90 C sounds high, and probably have either measured the temperature of the GPU when maxing out on games. Common, playing games stresses the GPU fan. 80-90 C is NOT a good temperature which means that we have an under rated GPU heatsink fan assembly. Take a look at air cooling in the chassis and make sure an adequate cooling, no pockets of hot air sitting around the GPU, clean the case with a vacuum cleaner of all dust, move cables, ribbons and other things out of the way of the graphics card and install one or more case fans if you don' have any. Better keep ONE SIDE of the case OFF and in the summer time use a small desk fan with a clamp on it and clamp it to the chassis of the case (the bar that runs on the top side of the case that holds the PSU in place). You might consider taking the shield off of the graphics card (maximum PC mag had an article several months ago on how to do this), remove the heatsink and fan assembly to the GPU and replace it with a better GPU heatsink/Fan assembly. Try to pull the VGA card and take a look at it and see if you can disassemble the shield with a few screws and take a look at the gpu and see if you can install a different heatsink/fan assembly. There are kits out there that will do it for you. Best regards

I was adding a 512MB card to a Compaq Presario that has an ASUS K8S-LA (or Compaq motherboard: Salmon-GL6E) and discovered what looks like a heat sync loose inside the case. I can see where is was connected to a part of the board that is next to the large CPU Heat sink. What is this part and how does if effect the motherboard? How do I reattach it to the motherboard?


The ASUS K8S-LA main board has a variety of chips on it, however only the CPU is large enough to justify a dedicated heat sink. \015\012\015\012The most likely location that your rogue heat sink is came from is your video card's processor ... PC Desktops

Not sure it's the motherboard, but it shuts itself down. Bios reports that the CHS fan is not running. Don't know which one that is? Have cleaned the pc out good and reseated the processor with fresh thermal grease. Temp starts out @ 20 degrees C and rises fast within a few minutes of running time. Afraid to leave it on too long at a time if it is a heat issue. Can you help me? Today it told me that the temp was lower than normal but it was up to 27 degrees C at the time...???


The CHS fan is the chasis fan, this fan should be seated on the case somwhere, the best way to check this is to take the side panel of the pc and power it up to see if any fans are not working, if you find a fan that is not working turn back off and ... eMachines W3507 PC Desktop
