|Over the past few days my computer has been |
overheating a lot. So I checked the idle
temperature and it was getting to about 85 in
Today I removed the old thermal compound
and put on arctic silver 5. Now when Idle, the
temperatures drop down to almost 60 Celsius,
but when I go to play a game on my computer
the temperatures rise to nearly 100 degrees
celsius within a minute.
When I was applying the thermal compound I
just spread it around all over the CPU because
I wasn't sure exactly what to do.
Edit: When I add pressure to the CPU fan it keeps the cores at about 70 degrees constantly even while a game is up, but as soon as I lift my hand the temperatures rise again.
