Dduring high loads usage and tests my cores are running at 3907.1 mz. The overheating and shutting down just started a few months back. I have a hwinfo64 log. Where do I start to find out why?
When was the last time you cleaned your computer?
What are your temps before shut down ?
Use HWinfo64(sensors) under heavy load, and upload here full information (make pictures) from sensors.
This was under load from Norton Full Scan. In another minute or so the pc would have shut down to protect itself.The cpu fan capability tests ok and the 2 large chassis fans right by the cpu are running on turbo and the power supply has it's own fan of course in addition. I have contacted Asus and AMD for their advice. This amount of heat happens pretty quickly; the pc really should be completely capable of handling this load. tia
Picture is almost unreadable. Remake it. But i can see CPU temp around 72C.
You need to check your CPU cooler. Reinstall it and change thermal grease. Or maybe cooler doesn't spin.
I bet you have stock cooling which i would remove just the fan and take all that dust out 71c is way too hot im not surprised your getting shutdowns
Nope. Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus. I am looking for any opinions on factors other than housekeeping. Cleaning it has already been put on the table.Everything looks stable to me except the cpu temperature but maybe someone else knows more about the hardware side.Is there something else I should be looking at? I'm going with cleaning and re-seating the cooler with ne thermal paste and if that does not get it under control, step up to a liquid cooler. Or maybe I will tell the wife I need a new cpu cause it's shot and buy the FX-8350.
House cleaning is the first place to start also with reapplying of the thermal paste after that you will see were you are.Those are basic but so important things to keeping your cpu cool. How is your case air flow ? What is the temp in the room your pc is in ?
"I'm going with cleaning and re-seating the cooler with ne thermal paste"-just do it. It's something wrong between your cooler and CPU surface.Lost contact.
Vcore is normal. CPU FAN is OK, but too high (because of high temp).
Apparently I am a lousy housekeeper. Blew the dust out, applied new thermal paste and currently running around 44 degrees on the spindle drive although it did hit 54 for a brief time on the ssd with high cpu utilization during the full scan. Just now down to a nice 41 probably because the i/o is so much slower on that 3 tb backup drive. So problem solved except that Norton really needs to throttle the cpu better on ssd drives. I/o is just too fast and the processor gets chewed up for a long time. Guess I don't get the new faster cpu for Christmas.At least I've ran a full scan for the first time in months so I feel a little better although Norton is more of popularity contest than a real anti-virus program. Thanks for the advice guys.
You are welcome! Glad, you sorted it out
