    Hey there nimjong, the thermal paste is there to aid in heat transfer from the cpu to the heat sink, or heat sink and fan. It is not recommended to run a computer without the heatsink and/or fan attached. This could result in the processor core burning out. What combination are you using, and are the fans, if any, working? Also have you run the cpu without the heatsink attached. Please provide as many details as you can.

Why does desktop fan run contiuously


It's probably running a lot because it's trying to keep cool. It could be about to overheat. The heatsink is probably plugged with dust and whatnot...or it could need new thermal paste as well.

If you are around the Chicora, PA area, I can clean it out for you.

If the fans are spinning then you need to take off the heatsink and ensure that there is paste between the heatsink and the CPU (its a golden or silver color normally). If not, go buy thermal paste.
If there is paste, then the heatsink was not placed properly on top of the CPU. Even if 3 corners are properly inserted and only one is not properly done, this can certainly cause overheating.

It is possible that the processor may be defective but that is very rare. Take the processor off of the motherboard and reseat it. Make sure that you are using thermal paste(preferably aluminum) properly. The motherboard has a function in it that if the processor overheats it will shut the computer down to prevent damage. Also check to make sure that you RAM is fully seated and also that it is compatible with your motherboard. I have seen several instances where the RAM was not compatible with the motherboard and the computer will not boot.

If you have already wiped some thermal compound paste fro the processor then I reccommend you to wipe it completly from the heatsink of the cpu and the heatsink itself. The reason to this is that if you plan on purchasing another type of compound thermal paste in which have more conductivilty then you want to get the most out of it. Do not attempt to run your cpu without any thermal compound as you will damage the cpu from overheating.

you should make sure that the heatsink and fan are clean and dust free, then you should clean all the thermal paste off with som alcohol(preferably 90% pure isopropyl alcohol)but 75 will work too make sure the top of the processor is clean also,then reapply the thermal paste.that should help,but if temps still run high then you should look for a better cooler.

Temperature too high! goes up to 90 C, when working intensively. Coolers not fixing the problem! No way to reduce frequency in bios lower than 3GHz.


get an ohter cpu fan, then apply thermal paste or heat paste the kind you get from radio shacks, or car sound shops, the thermal paste they use on the car amps is very good, it will bring the temp down to atleast 50

CPU over emperature


It sounds like you have a couple of potential problems. First it could be the fan is not working due to failure or not being plugged in properly. Second is that you need to put Thermal Paste between the processor and the heatsink. If you have not done this before, I suggest seeking out a friend that has to help out. There is many kinds of thermal paste and not one is universal. Find out the one that the CPU manufacturer recommends.

How to install intel processor cooling fan?


Hi, the strips sound ike thermal strips. Install the processor, apply the strips onto it just wide enough to cover the centre of the unit and then install the heatsink and fan on to that. Regards mistyman

Just a question no problem


It can be done, but I wouldn't recommend doing this if you don't have experience disassembling and reassembling laptops. Make sure you apply thermal compound before installing the new processor or it will overheat. Also, processors in laptop aren't the same as the ones in desktop pc's, so make sure you get one that is specific for a laptop.
