Well i fixed the motherboard, but now for some reason, my P4 is above 50 degrees Celcius. which of course is not normal. my computer though i have to say is around 30 so its fine. i bought a new fan for it, it is about 2700 RPM, but when i go into BIOS and then choose PC health, it will say nothing about the fan, only the computer fan itself. Please help, i have tried putting the gell on the CPU then the fan, but that only cooled it a couple of degree's. is there a way to have the CPU run slower, it is a P4 3.06, is there a way to make it 3.02? also what CPU frequency should it be on? i have the CPU frequency on default, but i heard its better to know, what should i do?
P.S. the CPU is a P4 3.06 socket 478 on the motherboard of an MSI. it has a 500 Watt supply, with a ATI video card. could it be the fans? i just have maybe i would say 2 in there? does it need a big one? like a 16mm? the fans in there right now is 8mm.
