    Speedfan & HWMonitor both show high NB reading

    Research tells me that speedfan is basically not to be trusted, but what about HWMonitor? The reading in question is TMPIN1(HWMonitor)/Temp2(Speedfan), which is about 93°C at idle. Best I can tell this is a reading for the northbridge. My board is MSI 785GT-E63. Touch tested all the...

    My laptop runs excessively hot even after I cleaned the heatsink

    A few months ago, I realized how hot my laptop was getting at full CPU usage (over 80C!) so I cleaned out the heatsink, which was clogged with dust, and the temps dropped to around 50C. Now, I realize the thing is getting hot again, with temperatures in the 70s so I cleaned out the heatsink...

    Laptop Turning Off Suddenly

    I have had my Sony PCG-7192L Laptop for about a year. All of a sudden, it is turning off within a few minutes of restarting. The process of booting up itself seems slower as well. In my experience, this kind of problem deals with overheating, with maybe a dirty heatsink or a fan that has...

    How to remove heatsink/fan from Gateway M305CRV

    I want to replace the power jack on a Gateway M305CRV but I cannot remove the cover because the heatsink/fan assembly is holding it in place. The heatsink/fan does not seem to be removable as it appear to have 3 screws holding it in place from the bottom of the motherboard which is inaccessible...

    Fixing a broken heatsink

    I have a Dell Inspiron 1000 which gets to about 80 celsius easily. I opened it up to give it a quick clean, and the heatsink snapped off (I think it's the VGA or Northbridge equivalent heatsink; it's definitely not the CPU cooler). Is there any way to keep it secured onto the motherboard? My...

    Unlocking cores with stock heatsink

    Would it be ok to unlock the cores on a Phenom x2 550 BE and use the stock heatsink. I am going to eventually replace it, but for the time being i am stuck with the stock heatsink. Would it be ok to run it as a quad with the stock heatsink?

    Artic Silver 5 on the laptop heatsink made a H U G E difference

    Cleaned out my friend's laptop (it was FILLED with dust - the fan would blast on high and NO air would come out of the vent). Just to let you all know, he had the same model laptop I did. I traded him my laptop and just switched teh hard drives as I knew I wouldn't have time to return it to him...

    Gateway 7325 Overheating problem

    I have a Gateway 7325GZ laptop that is chronically overheating and shutting down. I purchased a cooling pad but that doesn't even really help the problem either. I'm pretty sure that both fans are working, but I've been told the heatsink sometimes isn't seated properly and that could be the...

    Getting a new AXP1800, dont want to unlock

    Well, after frying my 1700+, I just ordered an 1800+. Now a few questions come to mind. Without unlocking the multiplier, what kind of stable OC can I get on an ABIT KG7? My last cpu was OC'd to a 1900+, and my temps were ok on a swiftek heatsink w/ copper base. I have been able to get the FSB...

    CircuitWorks Silver Conductive Grease?

    I want to unlock my XP1600, and the only believable article I could find was the one by VR-Zone, and they do the task by using "CircuitWorks Silver Conductive Grease" to connect the L1 bridges. So my problem is that I live in Denmark, and I can't find any shops that ships this item - can you...
