overheating problem

Postby gabriel_ameen » Wed Aug 23, 2006 11:44 am

dear friends,
i am running a system with intel pentium 4 3.0 ghz 800mhz fsb and 2mb l2 cache at LGA775. my only problem is that my processor temperature reaches upto 80 degree centigrade. I opened the heatsink and applied a very qualtiy thermal paste containing silver. but it still goes to 80 degrees which is 10 degrees more than the maximum temperature supported by the processor. what should i do?

Have you tried checking CPU fans? You can try replacing them.
