|I'm running a new air-cooled computer, which is having super bad CPU Heat problems. The CPU is heating up to 80ish degrees within 5 minutes, while the rest of it is fine. I'm on my Netbook right now, I can't tell what the CPU is exactly, I know it's an i7 quad-core though, and not that 1000 dollar extreme one. |
I've got a Thermaltake heatsink, the one that looks like freaking saw blades, and it's securely attached. I applied the thermal compound evenly, used a card to spread it, maybe I put too little?
The fans I have for it: I've got 3 80mm, two on the side blowing air in, and one on the top blowing air out, as well as a 120mm blowing air out the back (And it's right next to the Heatsink, too). There's also the PSU fan, and the Video Card I have also has a fan on it, blowing up, so there's plenty of air movement in the case.
I honestly have no idea what's going on.
