    This is a BTX motherboard and the cpu is positioned 45 degrees of the mobo. Also there is BTX type l and BTX type ll. I think this is type l, but not sure.

Trying to find heatsink unit to be able to use the board


Hello here is the intel homepage:


https://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&ProductFamily=Desktop+Boards&ProductLine=Intel%C2%AE+945+Express+Chipset+Family+Boards&ProductProduct=Intel%C2%AE+Desktop+Board+D945GCZ


Your mainboard is using the LGA 775 socket.

The heatsink fan looks like this:

9052cc16-4df4-4990-9e9f-1af87b0870b5.jpg

The fan can still be bought in a computer store, online shop or a repair shop.

I will recommend to but a better fan, like the brand northq, because the standard fan is difficult to mount correctly on the mainboard.

Remember to add a bit of cooling paste on the cpu, before you mount the fan.


Good luck

CLip of motherboard felt off.


http://www.heatsinkfactory.com/cpu-retainer-clips-intel-pentium-4-478.html

That would be for an AOpen AX4SPE-UN motherboard, because it has a Socket 478 processor socket.

I had it happen to an old mobo in the past, with a Socket 478 processor socket; and no clips.

I used a straight piece of coat hanger, and went from hole to hole, on one side.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/P4-Socket-478-Intel-CPU-Retention-Retainer-Bracket-/140647148266?pt=US_Fan_Heatsin_Brackets_Accs&hash=item20bf392aea

Had a slight bend in the middle, and this bend went partially across one side of the finned Heatsink.

Small piece of coat hanger again, on the other side.
Cut to the right length, and with the correct bend, the two pieces of coat hanger, put even pressure down on the finned Heatsink.

Problem is they twisted. The pressure on the bent part against the Heatsink, made them want to spin up away, from the Heatsink.
So I added a piece of coat hanger on each side, to keep the side coat hanger pieces from twisting.

Hard to explain, and looked like something from Dr.Frankenstein's laboratory.

Worked though.

(Too much pressure, and it will break the plastic retention bracket on the motherboard.
Not even pressure on both sides, and Heatsink will not sit flat on Processor. This = No.
You just have to 'dial it in', (Coat hanger pieces), or use the correct part/s)

My pc mobo is intel 915gav. processor is P4 pinless running with 1 gb 400 bus ram..after a new installation of win xp i worked hours continously..but in in next morning when i turn on pc after running


Hello
There will be a thermally conductive paste [Heat sink compount], a white tooth paste like substance, must be applied between the heatsink and the CPU. It is a must. If you have replaced, or unlocked the heat sink metal, and haven't applied this thermally conductive paste, proper heat transfer from CPU and the metal heatsink will take place, and the CPU will overheat, and finally go out.
Music videos are large files, which apply a great load to CPU, as processing video is a great task for CPU. Temperature must be below 40 degree centegreade, at any instant.
Just unlock the heatsink lock, take out the CPU heat sink out, and apply some heatsink compound [silicon grease] and retry. If you hear a beep sound after 3 seconds or so, after swithch ON the system, you have won. OK.

My motherboard is producing too heat


Take you Haetsink ontop of the CPU, make sure it's clean, get some thermal grease to put ontop of the CPU, and underneath the Heatsink, that should bring your temp down, also make sure that CPU fan is running fine whenswitched on,

Good luck

Overclocking on this board with an E2180?


When the CPU overheats it shuts down especially if you overclock it.
Did you put any heatsink compound between the CPU and the heatsink (this aids heat transfer from the CPU to the heatsink/fan)?

Your BIOS may have a setting that can adjust the CPU fan speed/temperature.
You can install additional fan/s in the case to draw more air into the computer case.
To further cool the CPU, you might have to install a better and more efficient cooling heatsink/device/fan on the CPU.

Hi - benimur


Pls check:
  • if CPU heatsink fan turning;
  • if heatsink is flat on CPU and tight;
  • if PSU exhaust fan turning;
  • if Video Card heatsink fan turning;
  • with a voltmeter, pls check consistency of the yellow and red wires (+12 and +5);
  • pls inspect capacitors near the CPU, none should be blistered, bulging are leaking;
  • remove the HDD connection and observe it will restart, if no, then probably a driver/software issue.

Trouble shooting


OC failure = over clocking failure. Make sure the CPU fan is clean, free from dirt & dust. Check CPU fan plug is connected correctly. If the CPU fan still stops after a few seconds replace the CPU fan.
It's harder to find just a fan to fit your heatsink, which sits on your CPU. It is easier to find a new heatsink \ fan combo for your Intel. Use your manual to find what Intel chip is on your board. Use that information & search google for a heatsink & fan combo. Pay close attention to how your current heatsink is mounted to the Gigabyte board.

Hello.., i m using asus K8VMX motherboard...problem is it is shutting down


Yes, It most likely is a overheating issue.. The motherboard has a feature built-in which monitors CPU temperature and shuts down the system as soon as CPU temps exceed manufacturer's limit.. Kindly look into reseating the Heatsink Fan (HSF) also make sure the base of it that contacts the CPU is Clean so proper contact area can be achieved, also apply some thermal paste if handy or available.. Also take a note if the Heatsink Fan is connected and functioning properly..
