the computer tends to shut down when the procssor ovrheats and if u removed the processor or the heatsync for that matter you have to remove old termo pate and replace it with new termo paste otherwise your brossesor will burn out
see do one thing check the cpu fan whether it is working properly and is not producing any noise if it is then probably you need to replace your cpu fan with a new one also makke sure that your power supply fan and chasis fan is working as excess heat gets generated in the system they remove it
to change the cpu fan
1.see it will depend on what kind of cpu socket you have pin or pinless
for pin-open the plastic clamp on the fan
for pinless -unscrew the heatsink
2.remove the heatsink and replace it it will be much better if you replace the full heat sink with a new one .also don't forget to put thermal grease compound for effivient heat transfer in between the cpu and the heat sink contact generally these days heat sinks come with pre-applied thermal componds but still it is recomended to apply it firmly over the cpu before installing the heat sink on it
3.if you wish to install the old heatsink by just replacing the top fan then replace the fan and rub the bottom of the heat sink with a sand paper to make it even and free from dust and oxide apply thermal compond and install it on the processor .plug bak the cpu fan header cable .
start your system it will stop overheating..
If you just built the machine, first make sure the fan on the processor is spinning. Next, Make sure the power to the fan is plugged in to the motherboard . Then make sure that the cpu fan is fully seated on the processor. If need be, re seat the cooling fan.
#1. Does the CPU fan run if not then you may have a conductivity problem between fan and CPu. Did you use thermal paste or grease?
If fan is running follow directions below from my manual for MS9377C+ mainboard.
Go into the BIOS setup ,go to CPU setup, select proper voltage for you CPU. On Advanced setup page see if the hyperthreading function is revaeled. If so your CPU has this function. Set "Enabled " to test HT CPU function. If this doesn't work try "Disabling" the function. Good luck. I am about to attempt tp upgrade to a Prescott 3.0E which the box says this board supports. Sure hope so . Am running a 1.7 now. email@example.com
OC failure = over clocking failure. Make sure the CPU fan is clean, free from dirt & dust. Check CPU fan plug is connected correctly. If the CPU fan still stops after a few seconds replace the CPU fan.
It's harder to find just a fan to fit your heatsink, which sits on your CPU. It is easier to find a new heatsink \ fan combo for your Intel. Use your manual to find what Intel chip is on your board. Use that information & search google for a heatsink & fan combo. Pay close attention to how your current heatsink is mounted to the Gigabyte board.
Sadly you wont find any 1066Mhz FSB processors for the Socket 478. The best you can find is the 3.4Ghz with 800Mhz FSB. It might be cheaper and also better value for you to get a Socket 775 based motherboard and Core2 Duo processor. The value range E2160/2180 processors or the E4300/4400 processors have been tested to be even faster than the Socket 775 Pentium Dual 3.4Ghz and they also use less power.
An article on socket 478 for you http://www.xbitlabs.com/news/cpu/display/20040123103754.html
