I have been having none stop problems with my computer since i got it about 6 months ago.

The problems are Bluescreening on games, general internet browsing, just general use of the PC basically. The most common error message is machine check exception..But it seems to go through stages of doing it all the time and then not at all for ages...So i have compiled a hardware report from Everest home edition below.

can anyone point out anything that could could be a problem with my system...Is the RAM speeds and frequencys setup wrong or is it over heating..Any advice would be great!

The temperature for your processor is too high. It shouldn't exceed 60C under load. Clean the dust out of the fan and heatsink. You may even need to reapply the thermal paste correctly. Also the CPU fan speed seems a bit slow.

thanks for your reply,

I have been looking into fan speeds in the bios, there is a option for Low, med and high speeds of the cpu. should i knock up these values?

Also the cpu temp in bios is 29 C, then in windows using everest and sandra lite, it has a value of 70 C. Is that because i am in BIOS and cpu is not being used?

This what i have done to try and reduce the temp on my cpu. It is at 70 C idle!!

-I have removed the heatsink and clean out all dust. There wasnt that much inside.

-I have taken the cpu out and cleaned the old thermal compound away, and reapplied following the instructions putting a thin layer of the compound on the cpu spreading it out as evenly as possible using the card supplied. Then reconnected the heat sink and fan. (fan blowing onto cpu)

-Also i have added more fans so i have 2 at the front/bottom blowing in and 1 at the top/back below the power unit extracting air.


However, no reduction in temp!! So im not sure. :whistling:
