I just put thermal paste ( A5 ) on my cpu there is a couple of days, and it was very difficult, the first time I opened my computer the temp was 85 o C,
( too much paste ) , the second was also the same temp, after that I put less paste and the temperature was 57-60 o C...
Now I was happy the temp looked good, but when I played a flash game the temp ( from idle to flash game ) was goig form 57 to 63, 64, 65, 66 , 67
The stock cpu fan was only going at 2400 rpm, before, when I had no put the thermal paste at 63 degrees my fan was going at 4000 rpm, but now I think it's broken or maybe I forgot to put a wire somewhere...
Because that is not normal...
Now I was wondering if I had to put this wire ( from the power supply to the location ) on the location on the picture
Maybe my fan ( cpu fan ) is not receiving the required power from the PSU ...
I also wanna know if I can raise my CPU temp my self , because, I want it to go at least 4000 rpm ( or I just can just go on the internet with my computer, do nothing else (i e games ) )
I tried very fasdtly SpeedFan software, it was said that 100% was 2400 rpm,
I also went into intel desktop utilities, And in the bios...
Everything looks fine ( I checked in the bios that the cpu control feature work, so when my temp is hight the fan is supposed to augment it's RPM - > but it's not working at all ! )
In intel Desktop Utilities, it seems that it cannot detect my Cpu and its speed That's weird, it may be related to the problem but it's not problem for me )
Here are my Compter specification in case you need them !
Cpu P4 3,2 ghz ( prescott LGA 775 ) With Stock Fan
Memory 512 DDR2 samsung chip
Mother Board Intel boards 915GEV
Videocard Ati Radeon X700 PRO PCI-E

2 rear Exhaust fans
One intake Side Fan

One stock fan on Video card
HDD 100 Gigs

Temp ( now )
CPU 56o C 2334 RPM ( CPU )
ZONE 1 45 1339 RPM
ZONE 2 39 1339 RPM
When I play a game It may go up to 65-67 degrees ! or more ( I just tested a Flash game )
I need help but I want also want to know if that is normal ( and dangerous )
Thank you for you help
