Hey Guys,

 

Yesterday i was working on my Desktop PC and suddenly screen gone blank and windows started again.! (and it is 2nd time this week)

 

I guess the more likely reason behind is CPU Temp.

 

I dont know much about PC Hardware, that why i am here and requesting you guys to help me finding the problem.

 

Please find the attached files relevant to my Desktop's Temp when it is in Idle state (only Chrome is running)

Hello vinaygarg,

 

Colleague iammykyl has identified at your topic here that the PSU that you have is of poor quality and performance, both generate more heat and this is a major contributor to your present issue, there is only one fan speed showing which suggests that there is also inadequate case cooling.

 

What type of case do you have, provide a link if you can.

Aye, case, cabinet or chassis are one and the same thing but depending on where in the world you live asking for a cabinet may get mixed replies American Cabinet - Indian Cabinet - UK Cabinet  :D

If your computer case is a brand name it will have a name or number on it somewhere, if not you may need to measure it, the MB details that you provided in your previous topic show it to be the ATX type/size.

So your case is the same as the mini tower at the link.

 

You should take off the side of the case and check if there is room for at least one more case fan, make sure that the computer is disconnected from all sources of power when you do this.

Take the side off the case and compare the inside of your case to see if you have space available like in the attachment below, if you have you should add the fan/s to the highlighted locations  asap to get your temperatures down.
