I would just like to ask what the average spped for the CPU cooling fan is? mins is running at about 2150rpm and my CPU is averaging a temp of about 44*C. but whenever i run a program that take up alot of CPU like spybot it reaches tempretures in the 50's and my computer can freeze and restart.


Should i think about a new fan?

Ok, we can find out by download a program called Everest Home from http://www.geekstogo...wdetails&f_id=9

Once you have downloaded and installed the program please follow these steps:
  • Open up Everest Home
  • On the start page there should be an icon saying "Motherboard", Click it
  • Now another screen should come up with another icon saying "Motherboard", Click it
  • Now scroll down the page until you find the heading "Motherboard Physical Info"
  • There should be a part saying "CPU Sockets/Slots". Beside that it will tell you the socket of your motherboard
Please post your socket type in your next reply.

Ok download CPU-Z from http://www.cpuid.com...d/cpu-z-134.zip

You dont need to install it, just make a new folder on the desktop and call it CPU-Z.

Un-Zip all of the contents of the download above into that folder and then run CPU-Z.


When the program is open, look on the first screen for the line "package". Beside this should be your socket type.

You may need to poke around a little bit in that Everest Home report. It should be there although it may not be intuitive. I just ran it on my system, under Motherboard , I click on CPU. I It says I have a socket 754 AMD clawhammer (yep, it is correct). Also under motherboard, it says package type 754 pin uOPGA. So look around and you should find the info.

Ok now that I know you have a Socket 478 Motherboard we can continue...

So your problem is that your pc shuts down when you run some programs due to your processor becoming too hot?

Right, I think i will inform a hardware expert for this problem.

I would go for either Zalman Coolers or Arctic Cooling Coolers. These are the ones I have heard the best comments about. :whistling:

I hope I helped.

If you need any help regarding getting a new cooler, i will be happy to help.

I have informed a hardware expert of this problem, he should help you out when he comes online.

Are you in the USA or UK or another country? just so I know what currency to use when looking for CPU coolers :whistling:
