Unhappy Possible Overheating Problem - Help needed

sponsored links

 
Hi, I just upgraded to a Athlon 1600xp (1.4ghz) and i bought the appropriate heasink and fan and i am using a 400w PSU, i applied artic silver 3 on the cpu and connected the heatsink and fan and i am running at about 44-46C, but now when i turn on my pc, it beeps at me for 3-4 seconds, until it has gone below the overheating warning then it seems fine.
is there anything i can do to stop it instantly going over 50C at boot up, i know it doesn't go above 60C as this is my shutdown temp, and it has not yet shutdown, but i am worried about my chip.

Nothing to worry about, the temp may be high to you, but its well within the AMD guideline, I am running a 1.4 on 52 and 60 fully loaded, the shut down temp is set at 75.

You can get a larger fan, I installed an XP1800 few months ago, using a fan rated for 2Ghz, temp for that never go beyond 50.

The beeping, may be something else.

Hi Duffy, thanks for answering but I am pretty sure the beeping is the overheating warning, as i went above 50C while playing Jedi Knight 2 and it was the same steady beeping as i get upon bootup, but when i do a reset there is no beeping, i know that if there is beeping on start up it means there's a problem, so i went to the site to find out what however many beeps means, but the number is never the same, sometimes it 3 or 4 and even 5, so i am still not sure.
The heatsink and fan i am using is the Coolermaster DP5 7H53F Socket A PIII & amp; UpTo XP 2000+ so i assumed this would be enough, i even have 3 other fans in the PC, the only other thing that could be wrong is the PSU it get really hot quite quickly.

I would suggest you change the shut-down to 75 (its a safe barrier), if the beeping is from overheating, then this should stop the beeping, if this does not, then I would suggest the problem is really lie elsewhere on your motherboard.

I know the DP5 well, what other hardware you have inside the case ?

Zombi, your hardware seem okie as they would never exceed the power the PSU is pumping out.

Try set the shut-down to 75 and see if you still get the beeps, just trying to work my way down to find the core of the problem.
