Windows 7: Random Power Outtages

Hey Icit

Just got in from work. I've had the PC manually shut down throughout the day.
*Room temp is only around 20-25*C
I checked the temps in BIOS at startup, and Mobo temp was at 20*, whilst CPU was showing at 70*C (158F)!

By the time it loaded into windows the Mobo was up to +60* again.


Ran that CPUID programme, here are the results:

Hum DL Looks like the CPU is definitely out of whack the temp is still too high (for my liking) the power usage (watts that is close to max) and amps high too 60+ amps a bit like a runaway train.

Now for starters the thermal compound needs replacing because if the heat is dissipated properly then obviously the temp will come down. Why it is drawing that much current is odd to me and if that doesn't work then maybe the chip itself is going home or there is something going on with it and the motherboard to make it pass that amount of current.

All of the other volts and stuff look ok my friend.

Have you tried anything yet, cleaning dust, renewing the thermal compound, checked PSU volts? I suspect either the CPU or the board is defective. No good way to test other than replacing parts unless someone knows a way.

Yes mate there is no way cos as I think I have said many times before (not here) you might find volts but if there is no current it ain't goin to work.

An almost flat car battery is a good analogy - volts may be ok but try cranking the engine and it just is not going to come up with the goods.

Follow this site and it will show you how to install thermo compound,(paste)

Make sure your bios are at default. Your vcore volts are to high. The max volts should be in your manual.

Please post your specs. This will help.

System Info - See Your System Specs

You shut down is probably caused by temps and not a power outage.

The comp got a full cleanout just after Xmas, along with new tharmal paste.

I've updated my specs page.

Just had the pc on, checked temps in BIOS (CPU 70+, mobo 20), logged in windows, ran Speccy (CPU 75+, Mobo ~70). Let it sit running for an hour, restarted and checked BIOS temps again... CPU at 70, mobo at 20.

SOmething is definitely wrong there.

BIOS to my knowledge has been set at default since i got the PC. My mindset previously with it has been "I don't know what I'm doing in there, so I don't touch it or i will break it"

I recall RMAing the PC a while back, and having checked my emails it was in mid Nov 2010 for a faulty CPU. The original purchase order also had a Coolermaster 212+ heatsink, but the current is a Thermaltake (not sure what model) that was changed then. Don't recall what the full outcome of the RMA was.

It sounds as though you could have used too much thermal paste. You will need to clean it off and reapply fresh paste, but don't use too much. A blob the size of a pea spread evenly and thinly over the top of the processor is plenty.

In addition be certain the CPU cooler's screws are tightened in a cross sequence,that is top left-lower right, etc. until all are secure and don't over tighten them.

The paste was put in after the crashing/temp problems started.

I'll redo it and give it a go, otherwise ill replace test the parts

While you're :under the hood: look for any indications of burn marks or swollen capacitors on the board.
