SOURCE: Hi, I have motherboard gigabyte

1) How is the Thermal Paste?

Thermal Paste is used in-between the top of the Processor's case, and the bottom of the Heatsink.

The bottom of a Heatsink, and the top of a Processor are not perfectly smooth.
A microscopic view would show 'Pits, Hills and Valleys'.
These imperfections create an Air Pocket.

Air is an Insulator, not a Conductor.

Thermal paste fills these voids, and is an excellent Conductor.
It conducts heat from the top of the Processor, to the bottom of the Heatsink.

After time Thermal paste will dry up.
It looses it's conducive property factors.

The solution is to thoroughly clean the top of the Processor, and the bottom of the Heatsink, and Properly apply fresh, new thermal paste.

[ First scrape the top of the Processor, and the bottom of the Heatsink with a plastic scraper.
I use an old credit card.
DON'T use metal.

I then use Isopropyl Alcohol to clean with. Rubbing alcohol. 91 percent ( 91%) is best.
Dip clean Q-tips in the alcohol, and use them to clean with.
Takes quite a few Q-tips dipped in alcohol. It's usually a gooey mess until a large percentage of the thermal paste is wiped off.

Isopropyl Alcohol is EXTREMELY FLAMMABLE!!

Use in a WELL ventilated area with NO sparks, or flames present!

The cost of thermal paste averages anywhere from $2 at a 'Mom and Pop' computer repair shop, to $9 for Arctic Silver 5. (There are many other examples I could have used)

Example of Thermal Paste, (Also referred to as Thermal Grease),

Arctic Silver 5 contains Real Silver.
It MUST be applied properly.
Applying Too much can be detrimental to your computer!

If too much is applied, the Arctic Silver will ooze off from in-between the top of the Processor, and the bottom of the Heatsink, after the Processor has reached operating temperature.

It will ooze down onto the pins of the Processor, (Or Processor socket), and onto exposed solder joints.
This results in a Short Circuit!

2) Is the Heatsink under the fan sitting properly on the top of the Processor?
If it isn't this results in the Heatsink bottom surface sitting at an angle, in relation to the top of the Processor.
Poor contact surface, poor heat transfer.
Processor overheats.

3) Have you observed the fan to see that;
A) It is spinning
B) It spins all the time. (Like it should. Always spinning)
C) That is spins at the proper RPM's. (Proper speed)

You can check the BIOS to see if you can over ride the autodetection of a plug in video card. If not, there is not a lot that you can do about it. There may also be a jumper on the motherboard.

Need Power supply

As per manual. Please use a power supply that is able to handle the system voltage requirements.
It is recommended that a power supply that can withstand high power consumption be used (300W or greater). The power supply link included should be more than efficient to run your GA-8I945GZME-RH MB.
