Question about EliteGroup ECS G31T-M Motherboard - Quad Core Support, Intel G31, Audio, Video, PCI Express, 10/100 Ethernet LA
Hi there, after hearing that the intel E2180 has great overclocking abilities I bought it to go with my ECS G31T-M motherboard. Most people can get to 3.0 Ghz on stock air cooling but I cant even get to 2.6. 2.55 works fine for hours but after a few minutes of getting into Windows, 2.6 restarts. Does anybody have any suggestions as to what is causing the problem here? My Ram is running at DDR 2 800.
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.
