Question about Intel Foxconn: Foxconn CPU Cooler For P4 478 3.4GHz CPU Cooling Kit

7 Answers

Computer starts up, won't stay on.

Intel Quad Core Q6600 2.4GHZ
500 GB SATA II 3.0 GB 16 MB 7200RPM
Cooler Master Liquid Cooling Kit
ASUS P5N0E SLI NFORCE 650I SLI MB
Ultra Lifetime Series 600 Watt PS
xFX GEFORCE 8800GT 512MB
Windows Vista Home Premium 64-Bit

This is a Cyberpower PC - yes I know tech support is non-existent.
Husband noticed the cooler fan didn't seem to be running all of the time. I don't believe the PC overheated, but the cooler fan wasn't running like it had before. Then noticed one of the LED lights on the fan blinks sporadically. Everything else was fine. Then the computer would shut down abruptly for no reason. CPU temp was 75 - 80. Would restart, windows would come up no problems. Same thing, 2 or 3 minutes later computer would shut down. Now when I try to start it up, I get the the windows recovery window, try to start it in safe mode, it hangs then eventually shuts down. Try last good configuration, shuts downs. Try to start normal, sometimes it gets to the little windows vista bar before the main window comes up, then shuts down.

When tech support got back to me he suggested that maybe they would send me a new cooling kit to install myself, didn't address any of the above. HELP!

I'm pretty comfortable making most repairs if necessary.

Thanks in advance.

    If the CPU is damaged, what are my options at that point? Can we retrieve any recent info from the pc?

    Going to try a new cooling system, then a power supply, we'll see how it works out. Thanks for everyone's advice.

Hi!
First you can connect hard drive as slave to another PC to retrieve any data you need, and then try a reinstall of operating system to this drive or make a complete format .

You said the leds on the fan is going off and on. Do the fans seem to slow when that happens??

You will need to check 2 things first off. Have the powersupply tested first, if that fine then try to test the motherboard.

Also try to unplug the fan that has the blinking problem, and see if it runs. (DONT LET IT RUN TO LONG WITHOUT THE FAN)

    Also it would not be the hard drive because of dust in it. If you have dust in the drive then the drive is trashed. The are air tight sealed. If for some reason the seal is broken then the drive is no good anymore.

    actually is that 80 celsius hope not because they run average 50 celsius = about 120 fahrenheit so 40 to 50c is safe.

If you have these symptoms on your PC:

System restarts on its own
Spontaneously goes into standby
Fan does not run, runs slowly, or runs noisily
Computer is heating up
Dim display
Any number of different things. Almost all PSU symptoms are also symptoms of another failure. For instance, a dying PSU can cause lockups or invalid page faults or disconnections from the Internet. Computer may not power on or may not complete PoST
Drives may not work intermittently
Multiple drives must be replaced repeatedly
Crackling audio
Computer running slowly
Drives intermittently not detected

Most probably power supply needs to be replaced.
Good Luck

This problem is really cause by overheating of your computer system, and you really need a working cooling fan to solve the problem...

    If the processor is bad, you can still retrieve the data from your hard drive by connecting it on a different computer so you can get the data from that drive...

He's right; 75-80 is way to hot for a CPU; it is overheating and therefore shutting down. The cooling kit *should* fix the problem provided the cpu hasn't been damaged from the excessive heat.

The processor is too weak - get at least an i5, best would be a quad core i7; the hard drive will be filled faster than you thing - bigger is always better; get some faster memories - at least 1666 MHz, 4 GB is bare minimum, get a 64bit OS and 8 GB for real performance; the power source is at the limit - for best result get one of 600W; as for the video card the best for photoshop is Nvidia Quadro CX, even ATI Fire will be better than any gaming card.

Intel core 2 quad q8300 EXTREME TEMPS


First off....alwys, always apply a very thin film of thermal grease to the cooler and Proc. This grease is designed to fill in the microscopic grooves and holes in the material. Do not glob it on thick, it doesn't work that way.
Case design has something to do with cooling but you are experiencing higher than normal stock temps, the more fans the better, you want some pushing air in the front and pulling it out the back, a good flow across all the hardware is essential. Installing a good processor cooler may require you to remove the motherboard so you can get to the back of the board to mount the cooler retainer plate, but there are other coolers that do not require this. If it were up to me, I would deffinately take the time and remove the motherboard and do this right. You need to get those temps down. I personally like this one....

Not too expensive and does a great job for the LGA775 socket.

For cases...I always use HAF932s...they have everything that is needed and are tool less.

Raid sys on p5k/epu


You are correct. The Asus P5K does support SATA RAID configuration. Page 4-14 in the user manual.
Congifuration [Enhanced]. Only real option is IDE. That does not mean the SATA drives will run like an IDE. The SATA's will function faster. In order to get RAID function you would need to have bought the Asus P5K Deluxe. http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=P5K%20Deluxe/WiFi-AP&SLanguage=en-us
