PC has high Temp
3rd Jan 2006

How old is PC – and how long has this problem occurred – How many Fans do you have in PC – How many Hard Drives do you have – Also what type of PC do you have – [Laptop] – [Desktop] – [Tower] –

What Video Card do you have – Does your Power Supply & Motherboard support Video Card –

CPU VCore appears low – The 12 V seems OK – but need to know what Maximum 12V Current - Video Card requires & if Power Supply supports -

Generally – This problem occurs – when PC is about a 1 year old – The dust buildup becomes excessive & CPU begins to [Overheat] – The CPU [Protective Circuitry] will stop the CPU – which – [Locks Mouse & Keyboard] – Entries –

Your CPU Temp is high – but your GPU Temp is higher!! -- Fan Speed looks low – is this speed taken in BIOS Mode?? Is CPU Fan connected to [CPU Fan] – Connector on Motherboard -

Check proper [CPU Fan] operation – Fan should be blowing Cooler Air into [Heat Sink] Assembly and forcing [Hot Air] out the sides – Then the [Case Fan/s] should be exiting the [Hot Air] out the back of PC – [CPU Fan] should be connected to [CPU] Connector on Motherboard -

Check proper [Fan Operation] on Video Card – Also you should try to keep the [PCI Expansion Slot] – near [Video Card] – [Empty] – to allow the Fan on [Video Card] – room to breathe – This Fan should be drawing the cooler Air into the Card & forcing the Hot Air Out –

Check [Power Supply] Fans for proper operation – Should be an [Air Intake] fan on bottom or side that blows air IN & 2nd fan blowing the [Hot Air] out – located at rear of PC –

There should also be a [PC Case Fan] – located below Power Supply Fan – in rear of PC – that is forcing [Hot Air] – Out of Case -

The CPU – [Heat Sink & Fan Assembly] – is probably clogged with dust – and/or – the CPU Fan is not operating correctly – This Fan should be Forcing Cooler Air into the [Heat Sink] – and Forcing the Hot Air – out the sides of the [Heat Sink] – If it is clogged with dust – The Hot Air – will not be exiting – and the CPU will overheat -

To clean –
1- Turn PC [Off]
2- Unplug [Power Plug]
3- Open PC Cover & Remove
4- Locate CPU [Heat Sink/Fan] Assembly
5- Position PC so you can – remove Fan from Heat Sink – Take Notice how it mounted – [Air Flow Direction] & how the wiring is [Routed/located]- Because you must replace [Exactly] when cleaning is completed – Usually will have 4 [Screws] holding Fan in place – Be careful – as not to Drop Screws -
6- Use [Cleaning Duster] – to clean the Heat Sink Assembly – Do Not Shake Can – Do not Invert Can – [Compressed Air] will TURN to – [Liquid] – when Inverted or turned – Keep the Can – [UPRIGHT] – Turn/Position – the PC as necessary – to clean all the [Dust] from the Fins of the [Heat Sink Assembly]
7- After cleaning – Replace Fan Assembly – Properly & verify that wires are not crimped under Fan – and use all screws that were removed – Do not try to clean – using the [Compressed Air] – while Fan is attached – This will rotate Fan – and probably damage it – Make sure Fins are clean on top & that the sides are free from [Dust] – so the [Hot Air] can be forced out the sides – as it rises from the CPU –
8- Verify that [Heat Sink] Assembly is locked properly onto Motherboard – If it is not locked down properly – there will be a [Poor Heat Exchange] for CPU & CPU will overheat -

The temps look a little on the high side for an idle temp, so a clean out is the first thing to try, if you go into bios and reset to defualts then it should reset voltages to the standard, im not as familiar with the intel chisp but the voltage seems like it might be low but ild have to look up what its supposed to be.

Fan rpm seems a little low, as well. If you have another fan port then you might try getting a fan for it.
