  • CPU Overheating

    Today, I went to move my newly build computer over to my desk, when on startup it would start to load the OS, then immediately turn off. I tried that twice then headed to the BIOS, where I got an error that the CPU was overheating. So I removed the side panel and felt no heat. All the fans in my Antec 900 turn on as well as the CPU fan. The oddest thing was that it worked last night. The only thing that has changed is it's location! Any help would be great.

      If it is overheating that quickly it sounds like the cooler may not be mated to it properly.

        If it's using the Intel Push pin, set them in diagonally. One corner, then the opposite corner. My went to a hundred degrees since it wasn't seated evenly.

          When you reseat your CPU HSF, check to make sure none of the thermal paste spilled over the sides.

            I used everest to make sure my overheating was from cpu, really useful if you are able to make it into desktop before crash (and turn it on). Shows temperatures, fan speed etc. without need to enter bios. (30 day trial)

              Doesn't even make it that far. One of the pins was being a bugger when I shifted the machine to the desk. All fixed. :D
