|"Your CPU is only running at 2.4GHz so you're actually |
underclocking. Is that an attempt to lower the CPU temp?"
I have not done anything to intentionally lower the cpu speed. It
occasionally spikes to 3GHz but does usually remain around
2.4GHz. I imagine it is slower as a result of the high
temperature and low rpm.
I did try to replace the thermal paste on the stock HSF and
when that didnt work I bought the third party HSF and just
used the thermal paste that came with it.
I believe it is locked down securely...it is a pain in the butt to
Anyone have any idea if flashing the BIOS might help? I
looked at the revisions on ASUS's website, and one revision
says "Fix CPU Temperature abnormal when use E8000
Series CPU". I don't have an E8000, I have an older model
Pentium D 925 but this is the only thing I can think to try right
now. I have never flashed a BIOS before so I am reading up on
that...until then, anymore ideas?
