System Overheating without Overclocking
I have the following system:
Gigabyte GA7N400 Pro2 Mobo
Asus Radeon 9200
512 meg 333mhz
PSU fan blowing out
CPU fan sucking
Case fan blowing out
Case fan located below PSU
I'm not actually overclocking - I'm just trying to get my system to run at the speed its meant to without overheating. When I have my motherboard set to running at 400FSB which is mandatory to use the system to its full capability it tends to work for a while then let out a beep code of:
long beep, short beep, long beep, short beep, long beep.
The monitor cuts out, then the system cuts out.
When the system is set at lower fsb this does not occur.
I find that by taking the cases side off, it lasts for longer without it happening. And I found that adding the secondary fan (Which wasent there until a short while back) also makes it stay on for longer. The case remains though that it still happens.
With fsb set to low and case off...
CPU temp is 58C
System temp is 32C
With fsb set up to auto (the desired setting) and case off...
CPU temp is 80C - 86C
System temp is 35C
I believe the danger point with my processor is 85C. Which aint good.
What could be causing the temperatures to get so high when theres already an extra fan attached and i'm only trying to run the system at standard speed?
