Windows 7: Updated Rig, teething problems?

The CT log shows your CPU was 100C, that is way too hot. Max temp is only 70C.

Oh, no no! I see the tables got jumbled when I imported it from Excel format, just noticed it now . I'll give a link to the proper Excel format log stored by CTemp

And I timed the power button press to power to display and/or Gigabyte Boot logo appearance, it's 15/16 seconds each time. Except when I reboot the pc from win 7 restart option--then it just starts up okay.

The Excel files looks better, but 60C is still very hot. Try this to time your reboot times.

Okay, followed the instructions & posting the result below (btw, since installing BDIS 2012 64 bit, boot times have slowed down-from windows loading logo to showing welcome for some time than normal).

I have been thinking about applying Coolermaster IC Essential E2, and replacing the Corsair with Gskill 4Gb to match the other slot. But how do I know it's not the MB, or even the gpu (although I have stress tested the gpu withFurmark and EUnigine_Valley-1.0)? I'm in a proper fix now

I would definitely remove unmatched ram and see if that fixes it. mix/matching ram can cause all kinds of issues if your MB wasn't designed for it, even when they are its not always problem free.

@britton30 Agree, that is pretty warm.

If the GPU passed the bench mark then its fine. Britton30 seems to be a lot more familiar with your particular hardware then I do, so I think it best to defer to him.

There is the possibility of a defective MB but typically the system will crash/random restart or not boot at all when that is the case.

Your GPU is a mid-low end and just may be getting over taxed for its ability. Absolutely get some matched RAM as was stated.

The reboot time is very good for a Zambezi system, I doubt if you'd be able to lower it more than 5-6 seconds. My system takes 59-65 seconds, see my specs.

Hmmm, okay. Then I will try my best to get a pair of 4gb Gskill to match and remove old thermal paste & apply IC Essential E2 if available on the market.

Firstly changed RAM, got the Corsair value 4gb kit that was on for discount, posting specs, also new restart test.

Okay, cleaned & applied IC Essential E2, ran prime 95. Also ran another Furmark test with burn-in enabled, posting here.

Well your CPU temp dropped somewhat and may get lower as the thermal paste cures, but I think you are OK now. You might have a look in msconfig/Startup and disable all but you security program(s).
