Hi all,recently i noticed that my computer is doing like a bulldozer when i play cs:go,also when i touch the surface on top it is hot.
I have:
AMD FX-6300 Six-Core Processor
AMD Radeon HD 7700 Series
8,0GB RAM
Can you help me guys? :unsure:
I removed the side cover and it got a lot better but i can still hear the noise and it is also less hot on the surface now,but this is a temporary fix.

MrPhilippos,

 

Is this meaning you are hearing the fans inside the case running fast while playing Counter-Strike: Global Offensive ? Game if correct does not require a lot to run.Happen with software or any other time using the PC ?

Not good to leave the case open as it will change the airflow. Could be an issue with the Video card or dust and dirt accumulation in case causing overheating. Fan not working, not enough fans or poorly ventilated area PC is in.

 

Since do have case open, check if AMD cards fan is working and any other fans. When did this exactly start happening ,did you change anything, add something ?

Happening from very start means, even without running this game ? I am no sure of exact PC model and make i can not suggest anything yet about it. Fans are running fast without you doing much, most likely be an issue due to inproper ventilation and or dust, dirt build up. CPU % and RAM % during game not a lot.

By that i mean that from the first day that i played cs go i had this thing happening.Inproper ventilation?Do i need to replace the hardware parts?Should i buy a new case?More spacious?

I don't know the model,i mean it doesn't have any brand name on it,i can see 3 fans in total.

I am using this case http://www.amazon.co...r/dp/B005QNZO0C

Do you want me to take a picture of the "inside"?I have removed the side cover so it's easy for me to do so.

From the image on this page, > http://www.nix.ru/in...111367&pid=2256

and the specs on this page, > http://nixpro.by/pro...-4-6pin_111367/

The case looks OK, but It only has 80mm fans, ideally they should be replaced with 120mm ones.

 

As jds63 mentioned, dirt and dust can cause overheating, is the case clean inside, if not get a can of compressed air and blow out the case, take care to keep the can upright.

This is the speedfan results,i placed the side cover back before i did the scan,so i guess with the side cover removed it could get  a bit better.

Thanks for the info.

Speedfan not doing a great job of interpreting the sensors, shows one fan running at 74 rpm.   temps showing high but not excessive. so download and run the correct OS version of HWinfo, (go full screen when taking a pic) > http://www.hwinfo.com/download.php

Please inspect the MB for the brand and model.
