Low fps and overheating.

Q: Low fps and overheating.

When i am playing games on my computer after a while my fps keeps going low and there is a noise coming from my computer, i'm pretty sure it's my fan. But this also happens while i am listening to music aswell. I downloaded speed fan to look at the temperatures of my computer and i don't know what these mean but i thought i would mention it anyway. My temp2 goes up to around 75-80C and my core can go up to 90C.

My computer is a Windows Xp

4 CPU
3.40GHz
1.50GB of RAM

Help?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi XRob and welcome to TSF !

Turn the computer off, unplug the power cord and open the computer case. Use a can of compressed air (available at your local computer shop) to clean the dust of all the fans and heatsinks, including the rear fan.

Then replug the power cord, turn the computer on and check that all the fans are spinning properly. Enter the BIOS at startup (repeatedly press del or look for some message telling you to "press xx to enter setup") and search for some hardware monitor or pc health screen. Report your temps, fan speeds and voltages from there, it'll be more accurate than speedfan.

What are your complete system specs ? Check the posting system specs link in my sig and don't forget the brand, model and wattage of the power supply (look on the sticker that's on the power supply block).

Okay i am a total noob here. So please keep your replies simple.

I have GeForece 9300M GS on my Acer asppire 4930G Laptop. The GPU is overheating with my idle tempratures at 65 C. When i start a game/HD movie the tempratures rise within minutes and my computer crashes (turns off) .

I got the laptop fans cleaned and got it serviced but the issue is still there. Also the cleaning got my warranty void. I have heard about underclocking and undervolting but dont know crap about them. Also are there any moded drivers that kick start the fan from the beginning as that might help.

Any other help/tips would be greatly appreciated (but please provide links to tutorials and details.)

Hi I love my HP laptop! I'd say you guys done a great job! Just I'm not sure if my temperatures are harmful  or not: I bought this laptop 30th June 2014.. (1 yr old tomorrow and still loving it) But my temps seem to be a bit high.Using Piriform's "Speccy", I have seen that my temperatures are as follows on idle: CPU: 51 degress CMotherboard: 52 degrees CGPU: 49 degrees CStorage: 40 degrees C When I play games such as FIFA 15, my temperatures are as follows: CPU: 89-94 degrees CMotherboard: 89-96 degrees CGPU: 92-96 degrees CStorage: 48 degrees C (Not worried about that) I am afraid to remove my keyboard to get to the fans to clean it out. What I have tried is: Use a hair dryer(cold air) on the vents (Removed some dust) So what do you suggest I do?Also, are my temperatures high, or am I exaggerting? ThanksRegardsSaahir

Ok..

So past couple of days my computer started locking up.. again. last time it was due to a fan not working properly and overheating. This time all fans are working.. but not sure if it is overheat or what..

CoreTemp64 has all my cores under 45 degrees with under heavy load 47 degrees one core might get it

When i run speedfan i get a few more sensor readings..

everything under 45 with the exception of

gpus - 2 nvidia 9800 gtx+ cards that are running at about 62 degrees celsius under moderate load

and something called "LM75 Chip" nForce2 SMBus which is also at about 62 degrees. is that the chipset? i have a 780i nvidia chipset on an asus p5n-t deluxe board.

Those temps sound like they are high? could be causing screen freeze? (looks like a screenshot when it freezes)

i have 5 case fans, a small asus fan and a large v1 thermaltake fan with heatsinks inside that are all cooling

I recently purchased a Visontek GF4 440 video card. Well the first thing I noticed is that this card has a heatsink but no fan. I thought "Well they must know what they are doing", but I seem to be wrong. First let me say that I play a lot of Everquest so my card gets a workout and after about 2 hours of play I get lockups. Let me also say that my case runs cool. When I built this machine my big concern was for heat so I have it running cool.

So my question is....

Has anyone else had this problem?

How can I go about fixing this?

Also, my buddy bought a GF4 440 by another company....it had a fan.
 

A:GF4 440 Overheating

You should be able to simply put a fan on over the heatsink to provide much better heat discipation for your card. I like the crystal orbs myself, but its really a personal preference.

When I get a little more time I'll take a gander at your card and make some more suggestions. Right now though, its off to class...

I am concerned because my CPU (athlon xp 2000) is running hot (between 61C and 67C), and yet my fan is only running at around 2000rpm tops, when it says on the web that it can run at 4500rpm (coolermaster DP5-7H53F). How do I change the rpm? I have a Asus A7V 333 motherboard, any help?
 

A:overheating

I believe the fan speed on that one is determined by a thermistor built into the heat sink. When the CPU gets hotter the fan speed will increase. Try stressing the processor with a benchmark and see if the speed of the fan increases. 61C isn't that hot for an Athlon.

Guys/Girls,

My CPU(AMD Athlon XP 2800+) is still overheating. As I write this, my cpu temp is at 73 degrees C. I just done the 60mm to 80mm fan conversion. I have the Dynatron Copper Heatsink with an Antec thermally controlled 80mm fan attatched and I used the Antec Silver Thermal Compound. I read that the fan is supposed to increase in RPMs as the temp gets higher. The RPMs are at a little over 2100 and won't go any higher. Should I get a non-thermally controlled one? Also, I can't seem to use the 3 pin to 4 pin connector either. Whenever I hook the fan up to the power supply, my pc stays on for maybe 10 seconds then shuts off. I can only use the mobo fan header but is this powerful enough for my fan? My exhaust fan(80mm Antec) is blowing out cool/cold air. Isn't it supposed to be warm? My case temp is at 30 degrees C right now. I'm so lost and not sure what to do.

A:Still overheating?

Go to www.majorgeeks.com and download and install cpuidle it will cool your cpu by about 10 to 15 degrees. If you haven`t got it already then you need to download Motherboard monitor also from the same site.

Also when you took of the heatsink how much thermal paste did you use?

You only need a small amount about the size of a grain of rice applied to the boss of your cpu.

Did you clean the underside of the heatsink and the small metal boss on the cpu? You can use a little alcohol to do this.

Alright I've got an Alienware system, thus I've got the large tower case. I used Intel Active Monitor to figure out the temps for my system and it seems that I've been getting high numbers for my "System Zone 1". I read into it a bit and apparently the the bios I had could've been giving inaccurate readings. I have the newest version of Active Monitor and I just updated my bios but my System Zone 1 is still giving me high temps, typically 58 or 59 degrees Celsius. My problem is I have no idea where the sensor is for "System Zone 1" so I have no idea where in my tower the system is overheating.

Problem...I've got 4 case fans, a fan and heatsink on my processor, a fan built into my power supply, and a fan on my GeForce 3. If I get hot this summer I think I'll just sit near the thing. I'm not so sure how to set up the fans to get optimum air flow, right now I have 2 fans on the front, one blowing on my harddrives and one below it blowing out. I have one on the back blowing out, and I have another fan on the side of the case blowing in. I have a slot for one more fan but I already think this is somewhat absurd...should I just go ahead and fill that in?

Lastly I'm worried about screwing up my airflow due to a mess of wires...is there anyway I could clean up my cables a bit? Anyone have a site or something? Thanks to anyone who can help me.

Yesterday I was using my computer, doing nothing particularly processor-intensive (though I had had my computer on for three days straight :\). Suddenly, it rebooted. The tower simply restarted without warning. After about 5 minutes, it happened again. And again. And again. I just turned it off for an hour and waited. When I booted back up I saw the temprature was at 84 degrees - that seemed too hot so I shut down, opened up the case and let it sit till this morning. I booted back up and checked the temprature - 83 degrees. Could this be from a broken fan? Maybe just collection of dust? Any ideas would be appreciated.

I put this in your own thread. When you have a problem, please start your own thread rather than posting on someone else's thread. The reason for this is that with one issue per thread, it can be difficult at best to follow what has/has not been done. With multiple issues, it becomes just about impossible.

Now for your problem. Has this always overheated? Have you done anything to the system such as swap cpu or hsf?

Have you opened the case and given the system a good cleaning with a can of air? While it is open, verify that the hsf is in fact working.

My CPU has been running at really high temps recently has been up to 160F but normally runs at 135-145F. I am having trouble with system running completely slow, & freezing up.

I am wondering if I installed my CPU fan upside down, for the life of me I cannot remember if it should be blowing towards the CPu or blowing the hot air away from it. Right now I have it blowing towards CPU (which I am thinking is wrong now that it is overheating on me).

Unfortunately I am only using the thermal tape that came with the heatsink, which may not be working that well.

This is my uncle's laptop.  A couple of months ago, it was coming on, then turning back off almost immediately. I recommended a new battery. The new battery completely solved the problem until the other day, when the computer began doing the same thing again.
He called me again, after he had tried to start the computer a couple of times, and System Restore (or Startup Repair?) came up and said that Windows had not started properly, would he like to attempt to return it to a previous working state? So he did that, and brought it to me. It's actually been fine since I got it.
I know all to well how many problems can have the symptoms that this one has.
 
He tends to leave the laptop plugged in, since it will suddenly shut off with no warning if the battery runs too low.  So that shouldn't be it.

what range do u guys consider overheating? like tempature range C or F (for a 3.2 800 FSB hyperthreading CPU)
 

A:CPU overheating

I would consider anything over 60 degrees C cause for alarm with that processor. The P4 slows when it detects overheating, so it is almost impossible to damage one from overheat. You would notice a slowing of the computer if it thought it was getting too hot. If it is running over 50C I would check the seating, paste application and case cooling.

hi,
my pc keeps restarting, i checked the system bios and setup and it said that the motherboard tempreture was 72 degrees also when i play on games the game stops and goes back onto the desktop with the game closed. Could this also be caused by overheating?
 

A:Pc Possible Overheating

yes. Do you have adequate ventilation - i.e. fans.....

My hard drive and graphics card feel really hot if I don't keep a fan on them. It's getting cold outside so that's not gonna do... Any suggestions that don't involve me getting a new hard drive and graphics card? Cause I have other bills to pay.
Thanks in advance.

Lately I've been having to put a fan on my computer to do anything without my computer getting really hot. I can't watch a whole media file without it pausing on me for 2 minutes and then screwing up the placement of the file.

If I leave my computer on without a fan, my hard drive and my graphics card feel really hot. I leave the case open and have a fan pointed at it, however it's getting cold and having the fan pointed at the computer is starting to make the room cold.

Has anyone ever had this problem? Maybe it sounds familiar or someone might know what's wrong just by my description. If anyone could help at all that's great, feel free to ask questions. I keep my files cleaned and defragged which helps a little but not enough.
Thanks in advance.

A:Overheating

It most likely is, download a program called speedfan and see what your temps are.

What happens if you overheat your graphics card? Will it shutdown or do you simply fry it the second it gets too hot?

I wanna try some hardware-accelerated stuff in linux, and since my card is stuck at 5% (unless changed with a program, WHICH DOESNT EXIST FOR LINUX, lol) fan speed it might overheat. And I dont want to fry it.

For reference, it's a Sapphire X850XT.
 

A:Overheating?

It is most likely to cras the pc than anything. Servicing your graphics card before overclocking it may be a good idea, make sure that the heatsink and fan are free of dust and that the thermal paste between the gpu and the heatsink hasn't dried out, if it has, replace it!!!!

Adding a bay cooler may be a good idea too, they are cheap and effective, but remember they only suck air out, not in, so don't place one by the gpu fan but place it above the graphics card if its possible!!!

Computer seems to freeze when it is working harder; I suspect it is the CPU overheating. The ting is, it has only been doing it recently. I'm going to try putting some thermal paste on it.

First Question: How do I apply it?

Second Question: How else could I stop the CPU overheating?

My CPU is set up like this one:

Well, my computer was bought in February and received some heavy use since then.

I have noticed recently that the computer has been running fairly hot, and my gaming experiences were chock-full of lovely drops in framerate. I then moved my laptop to the coldest room in the house, and temporary fix, here I come.

But I realize, even though not nearly as hot as it used to be, the framerate during gaming still randomly drops, generally at more stressfull times, but it does drop frequently. The problem is that it never did this before, while playing the same games as I used to.

Although both my hard drives are at least 75% full, in total I have over 100gb of hard drive space left. I defragmented the both of them to get under 1% fragmentation in each (although my backup drive is almost 100% fragmented, what a mystery :/)

I dont have THAT many processes open and I have run Malwarebytes and Spybot S&D, and cleaned up.

I was wondering if perhaps there could be another issue aside overheating here. Any suggestions?

My laptop shut down suddenly and when it started, a message appeared stating the laptop was shut down to avoid overheating. Are there any ways from which I CAN REMOVE THE DUST from the cooling vents? There aren't proper shops around so I need to do it myself at home. Any simple and effective method will help alot. Thanks
