Question about Biostar P4M800 Pro-M7 Socket 775 mATX MB w/Video Audio (ETKMBB-P4M8P-M7) Motherboard
I bought a mach speed p4m800pro-m7 mother board also a celeron 3.46 processor. just a simple upgrade. the problem im having is the processor is heating up around 80 to 85 C. i boot up it will run 3 to 5 minutes then lock up. i have 2 case fans one pulling in in the front and the other pushing out in the rear. also the standard heat sink with fan on the processor. i have the side cover off with a 4" fan also blowing on the processor. someone suggested i get the pc off the floor to help with cooling. no matter what i try i cant get it cool enough to run can u help.
You must keep the case on so that the air actually flows like a current. opening the side case makes the case fans useless. keep the large fan blowing on it though.
Follow everthing in order and test it by playing games for an hour and taking the temp. 70 degrees celcius is actually pretty cool, so you can have it around 75-80.
A lot of things could explain this problem too, like damage to the motherboard, faulty BIOS chip, hardware incompatability, bad memory, etc. all coming back to your motherboard. If you find that its not the heat then you need to get it checked out by a computer shop.
