    Hello, My system's been through allot of repairs but still i have my CPU jumping to 65C/75C and as soon as it passes around 60C + the fan jumps into Turbo mode running like a car engine in my room o_O
    The temperature runs high when im playing games / running an application that's using the CPU anything that uses the CPU quite well makes it jump into overheat mode..
    I have replaced the CPU allready (since that's what the HP repair centre said they replaced the MicroProcessor) when i first had the beeping codes they did that..
    Then they replaced Gfx Card and all accessories like WLAN Card etc. and still the same problem.. Turbo Overheating..
    I can't remember but i think they replaced the Motherboard too (not sure altough there saying they didn't but i think they did)
    Still overheating like mad! :(
    I am running Windows Vista Home Premium.
    Intel Core 2 Duo E6700
    2Gig ram
    ATI X1700

    There coming back to replace the Fans and motherboard (which i hope becuase system's not been picked up for 2 days..)
    I was wondering the ideas of you guys ;) Anything that i should do? since the HP repair seems to know very little and they just replace random parts :( My system's on Normal 30C / 40C when i start it up but jumps to 70C when i load it with games / 4-5 applications running..

    I guess you wont know - but did they put good thermal heatsink compound on the CPU / FAN interface

    Is the machine actually getting very HOT ...

    I wondered if the machine was misreporting the temp, and it was not actually that HOT ....

    Oh =) Well seriously if it was misreporting maybe the Fans wouldn't kick into 5000RPM (Speedfan FAN speed result) and run like a car engine?

    No, actually that is wrong. If smartfan is enabled in the bios [and it should be] it responds to sensed temp; ie what is being reported. You need to understand that the temps sensors on a motherboard are very cheap items. A really accurate sensor would double the cost of the board [not something most people would want]

    Just because you had it serviced by hp in no way is indicative of warranty status.

    Sorry, i thought maybe you might have understood ;)

    Anyway, I forgot about the smartfan.. Where can i see if that is enabled?
    But let me tell you guys this also, Sometimes when i take off the case cover, i can feel the warmness from the CPU though.. If i put my hands close i can feel the warm heat coming out of the Heatsink fan..

    they would if it reported 70c but the temp had only moved up to 55 from your idle condition, hence the question does it feel HOT - not suggesting you touch it - but you should be able to notice that - I have an old AMD that runs around 68c and keeps the room nice and warm, and you can feel the air getting hot ..

    OK, i just opened up the case and i feel cold air blowing out nicely
    lol i tried to move my hard closer towards the cpu underneath the Heatsink and i felt kinda warm not hot (i didnt touch it safety.. ) but moving it close toward the cpu / moverboard did feel warm.. kinda between warm and hot and this was when speedfan reported these:

    The socket 775s are somewhat a pain to get installed correctly. If this system is under warranty, then send it to hp. If you want to attempt to fix it [and void your warranty] here is what I would do.
    1 Pull the board
    2 Remove the hsf and clean hsf and cpu with 99% alcohol
    3 Once all parts are clean and dry, apply arctic silver and reinstall the hsf
    4 Check under the board to make sure ALL four push pins are fully engaged
    5 Reinstall board

    Note the 775s require the hsf to contact the cpu heat spreader with a min of 15lbs down or clamping force. If one of the push pins is not fully engaged, it will result in overheating and or shutdown.

    I think i'll wait for HP to come and pick my system up and i hope they replace the Motherboard.. So you guys think it'll be fixed if the Motherboard is replaced?

    Maybe yes and maybe no. It depends on if they install the hsf correctly.
