Get the heat out!

My computer has two 120mm fans, one in front for air import and one at the back for export. All the cables are in a small place, they do not make any trouble, I have only one HDD and I use the on-board gpu, so, I am wondering..... what am I doing wrong and my cpu reaches 90, 95 and more degrees in less than two minutes? I formated my drive and now I cannot install Windows again. After two minutes the computer closes. It is now completely useless.

So, how will the heat get the hell out of my computer?

I had this problem once or twice a month since November. No summer temperatures then.... First I thought it was my gpu, a NVIDIA 9600GT, so I removed it. But some days later the problem appeared again. This problem happens every day for the last 30-40 days.

Is there anyone from inside AMD to give us any help?


(Now, my cpu has reached 73 degrees after 10 minutes of internet surfing...)

what thermal compound are you using.?
what changes were made the day this first started happening.?

Interestingly enough, I inherited a PC from a friend (he went quad core).
The machine I inherited which he bought from ebay was an Athlon x2 AM2 5400 on an ECS 690GM-M2 motherboard. The cpu temps were all over the map.
After 10 minutes of video encoding, my temps would go to 75-80. I thought it was a bad power supply not supplying enough power to the cpu fan and I replaced it with an Antec 650W. That didn't help. I also bought a new cpu fan (Thermaltake silent turbo) with AS5 grease. It turns out the heatsink was crap and improperly installed (not really outfitted for AM2 cpu) and the fan barely fit. I think my friend got ripped off. I figured witha new $15 Thermaltake HSF, I would solve the problem. The new HSF didn't make a difference and I would get overheating at 75 degrees celsiuis after video encoding.

I took a chance and ordered on newegg a new OEM Athlon x2 AM2 5600 for $56. It arrived today and I installed it. I started video encoding and there is no problem with temps. I idle at 35-40 degrees celsius with max temps of 58-60. It's only been for 5 hours, but things look good. I think since the CPU HSF was installed incorrectly the CPU eventually died. Or, the CPU was defective originally and my buddy who ran the machine in AC and always in cool weather and in linux with no stress on the system, preserved the life until I inherited.

I am now wondering if I should have not gone the Brisbane route purchase since you all seem to be having issues on the cpu I just bought.

Bought a 2nd hand Athlon 64 X2 5600 Windsor for my Asus M2N-MX SE mobo. It came with a Thermaltake copper bottom HSF. Cpu temperature with light use is 40-45 deg. When maxed out -- eg 98-100% utilisation both cores encoding video for 3 hours -- temp stabilises in range 68-71 deg, with a few spikes as high as 75 deg. PSU (350W) also gets darn hot but all voltages stay within specs. I got worried about the cpu -- esp when the AMD website says max allowable temp is 55-70 deg. However, so far no performance issues, shut downs, etc. Taking a side off the case dropped the cpu temperature by 3-4 deg. The following made no difference: reinstalling HSF with fresh grease, disabling Cool'n'Quiet, cleaning PSU fan, installing 80cm chassis fan. Guess I'll carry on and eventually stop fretting over the temperatures!
