Thermal trip


Jul 10, 2013 | Intel Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Shut down

1) Computer dirty inside?
Air is used to cool the hardware components inside the computer.
If the Processor fan, and/or Heatsink is dirty, there is one of your problems.

The Thermal Paste on top of the Processor may have dried up too.
THOROUGHLY clean bottom of Heatsink, and top of Processor, then Properly apply new Thermal Paste.

2) What condition are the Radial Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors, on the motherboard?

My intel 945gtp board cpu overheating

A) I would use the Intel Pentium D, model D820.
It's a Dual Core processor with 2MegaByte of L2 cache, and an 800MegaHertz Front Side Bus. (800MHz FSB)

I would also use PC2-6400 ram memory, (DDR2 Sdram at 800MHz)
Using PC2-5300 (DDR2 Sdram at 667MHz) is taxing on the Processor.

If you are using an Intel Pentium D, model D506. It's maximum Front Side Bus is 533MHz. I would NOT use DDR2 Sdram at 667MHz.
Also is taxing on the Processor.


The cache for a Processor is the FIRST memory area, the Processor accesses.
(L1, and L2 for the processors you named. Newer models have an L3 cache also)

It is a small memory area for the processor, and operates at the same frequency rate as the processor does.
(Frequency Rate = 'Speed')

The next memory area the Processor accesses is the Ram Memory.
Ram Memory typically operates at HALF of the FSB of the Processor.

With a D820 you are making the processor's FSB support Step Down, to use the 667MHz ram memory.
With the D506 you are making the processor's FSB support Step Up, to use the 667MHz ram memory.

More work for the Processor = More Heat

B) Next, how you applied the new Thermal Paste.

Notice I stated N-E-W.

This is because thermal paste can dry up, and also loose it's thermal conductivity properties.
Don't skimp in this area. Thermal paste is C-H-E-A-P!

C) What kind of thermal paste did you use?
The thermal paste that has real silver in it, is an Excellent thermal paste, BUT needs to be applied properly.


Because silver is an excellent conductor of ELECTRICITY, as well as heat.
If too much is applied the excess will ooze off, once the Processor reaches operating temperature.
Means the thermal paste will ooze down off of the Processor, onto any solder joints it can reach, AND the contact pins of the Processor.

This can cause a Short Circuit. May just cause overheating until the wrong solder joints, or processor pins are reached, by the oozing thermal paste.

Proper cleaning of the top of the Processor, and bottom of the Heatsink

The old thermal paste, or thermal pad, needs to be THOROUGHLY removed. Use a plastic scraper
(Old credit card, or one you got in the mail? "Now you too can have a XXXXXX credit card!" Bah, sheesh!)

Scrape off as much as you can. Then use Q-tips dipped in Isopropyl Alcohol. (Rubbing alcohol)
I use 91 percent, (91 percent alcohol, and 9 percent water)
You can use 70 percent, but I do NOT recommend 50 percent.
(50 percent alcohol, and 50 percent WATER)

Isopropyl Alcohol is EXTREMELY FLAMMABLE!!
Use in a WELL ventilated area with NO sparks or flames present!

Takes a LOT of alcohol dipped Q-tips. The top of the Processor, and bottom of the Heatsink, needs to be THOROUGHLY cleaned.
Clean enough you could literally eat off of it. (But DON'T)

D) When you put the Heatsink/Fan combo on the Processor, did you hold the motherboard in the air, and look across the motherboard with a 'birds eye view', at how the Heatsink is sitting on the Processor?

CANNOT be tilted. Has to have the entire Heatsink area, sitting flat on top of the Processor. If you can see ANY, daylight in-between the top of the Processor, and bottom of the Heatsink, START OVER.

E) What kind of Heatsink/Fan combo are you using? May be too small for the job, or not the correct one.

F) Does the computer tower have plenty of room around it? You are supposed to have at least 3 Inches of room, all around the computer case. In your instance I would use more.

G) Taking the side cover of the computer case off, to help cool the Processor. This = NO, unless you have an external fan blo-wing air into the open case.
By taking the cover off you are decreasing the cooling power, of the computer case fans.

The Intel Pentium D, model 820 can use up to 95 Watts of power.
At that maximum wattage usage, the maximum allowed temperature
is 64.1 degrees Celsius.

You are correct. Shouldn't be at 65 degrees Celsius just loafing. (Idle)

My computer just went belly up! It is a reconditioned IBM ThinkCenter, a little over 2 years old. It was running normally and then all hell broke lose, cooling fan went berserk sounding like a hair dryer...

you need to clean the heatsink of the processor remove it from the motherboard by turning the lock to counter clockwise to 90 degree only all four lock then pull it up gently check for the thermal paste if it is dry you need to add a new thermal paste before you add make sure that you clean the back of the processor or remove the old paste that already dried out, just a small amount you need to apply, then before placing back the heatsink to the processor make sure you already turn the lock to lock position by turning it clockwise 90 degree then make insert it correctly to the four holes in the motherboard then press the lock down slowly to lock one by one,

I have a motherboard of Intel 945 GCNL. I having a problem about that.. Fan is properlly working and the error is auccorred that proccessor heating. I want to know what is the reason!

Most likely the thermal paste has dried. Remove the cooler and clean it (there will be a lot of dirt inside it), clean the old paste from the processor and the cooler , apply 3 drops of a new good paste on the center of the processor and put back the cooler.
Problem solved.

Intel Mother board D945 GNT. The system switches off due to excessive heating. The Processor temp ( from BIOS) shows 79 C. Please help. Changed the Heat Sink paste. does not help..Please suggest..

Thermal shutdown of the processor can be cleared up by the correct application of thermal paste or a liquid cooler block and an efficient heatsink and fan. It would seem that if you are running a system that is baking the processor at 79 degrees, there are serious processor demands being made. If you are overclocking or gaming with settings set to high, then you are going to have to go above and beyond the stock cooling rules or you are going to end up nuking your system. The thermal paste for a processor in a desktop computer needs to be about the size of an eraser head and then it needs to be spread very then across the processor, staying away from the very edge. The Heatsink has to be able to handle the demands of the system and the more fans the better. That motherboard should have several power points for fans, there should be fans pulling air into the case as well as fans pushing air out the opposite side of the case. Good luck

When I boot the machine it gives me a thermal overheat event msg and shuts down, I believe the thermal contact between the fan and processor has broken, I do not know how to remove the cpu fan and re apply...

Theres many types of sockets for motherboards. If PC clone, search for the book manual for pinpoint wath socket it it or it is a IBM or DELL or HP, the same except the latter is little more tricky when detaching the heatsink. Once figured out, disconect the power, touch the fuselage of the PC to discharge from ESD. Of course, buy a heatsink compound and you can clean the cpu and bottonm of the heatsink with paper towel and Isopropyl Alcohol and apply new compound. Not too much, the nessesary only. I'd like to apply in a whirpool like on the CPU. And the heatcopound color grey is the best.

Overheating problem

have you controlled in windows task manager for programs that is overloading processor and ram? if not press ctr+alt+del go to processes and in the end of windows look fo processor loading, is given in%. do this when your computer is seem to go in shut down ,,a little before (ex after 2 hours).
if you find somethin there , aprocess that is overloading your cpu kill process imediatly presing end process button. if you didn't find something there , have you cleaned your old thermal paste from cpu before aplying a new one? have you inserted cpu cooler in his right place if yes , try to change your processor because is it damaged due of ecsess of heating per wat that it can. prove with another processor , if the problem persist then put acooler to the chipset that dont have a cooler if problem persist you must change a MB.
another question have you suficcient watage in your power supply to cover all your devices you have in your pc?

Turn off with in 1 min.

That is most likely the proccessor overheating and shutting down.
Remove the processor's heatsink and fan, clean off all the old thermal paste with alchohol and a cotton swab, you can use a piece of plastic like an old credit card to remove any stubbon thermal paste.
Reapply the thermal paste (about the size of a grain of rice is sufficient) and reattach the heatsink and fan then start the machine up again.

Problem with just yello light of the motherboard

Hello again harjeet83, (Did you put some thermal grease on your CPU)? Try bypassing the ups & plug directly into a wall socket.

Let me know if doing this has stopped the PC from shutting down?
