I recently purchased a new CPU cooler, and it requires a new backplate to be mounted, however the current one on my motherboard is near enough welded on, is there a safeway and proper way to remove it so I can attach the new one? Cheers x
Ok, you might as well rename this thread to, intense problem. when I was twiddling with my fan, I had to unplug everything from the power supply, I figured otuwhere most of it goes, and plugged it all it, now when I turn it on, it stays on for a few seconds, then shuts off. What have a I plugged in wrong? I'm going to have to take eveverything off and start again I suppose. this has taken me hours as it is.
Is your CPU cooler fitted nice and fluch on the CPU? it sounds like it may be getting really hot really quick
I think so, it's running now, and the temps are better, but now it sounds a like fucking hoover, and the GPU keeps making a funny noise now. :( I had intense difficulty fitting the fan, and now I think I have it, now it keeps randomly speeding up and going mad when im not even running anything. I fixed it the booting problem, it's just that now my new fan is tank.
Did you damage than fan trying to fit it? Or is the noise just where its speeding up and slowing down again? It may still not be seated correctly if it speeds up suddenly.
Well it seems unessecerily loud, and I may have damaged it, i'm not sure, I probably have, it just seems to randomly speed up for a few seconds then slows down, my CPU is really cool now, 34c! But, randomly it keeps speeding up and down, Maybe I used too much thermal grease?
Does the fan use a 4-pin connector? If it does then it's controlled by temperature. The speed will increase once it gets to a certain point, and if your CPU is sitting very close to that point then the slightest bit of activity will speed up and fan, which will make it louder obviously.
Yeah, it speeds up when my mobo goes above 60c, my cpu is fine, doesnt reach 40. it says on the box you can control the speed through the bios, but I don't know how to change it. My PC is a radiator / hoover.
Er. are you sure that whatever program you're using is reading the temps correctly? The CPU (and GPU if you've got a decent graphics card) should be the hottest part of your system, there's no reason I can think of that a motherboard should be hitting 60 degrees C while your CPU is below 40. You sure it's not the wrong way around?
Im using Everest ultimate edition, currently, just started it up, the temps are HDD - 21 GPU - 41 CPU - 35 Motherboard - 54 :S I don't know, it was as hot before, but the CPU is cooler.
