Hi Again

I had a fault about two weeks ago and thought id fixed it. Basically I just using my computer playing dragonage I think it was when the this really load spinning noise started, and my computer screen lost its picture and then froze I opened the side panel to see the CPU fan was spinning really fast., I powered it off, then back on again. I went into the bios and tweaked with the cpu fan settings. Now its been fine for two weeks now and all of a sudden i was on the internet while something was unzipping and my fan when spinning mad again. I powered off and on again to find that the sound is not working now. Does anyone know what is causing this, I am at my wits end on what to do with this pc.

Its overheating, make sure the heatsink and fan are seated properly.

definetly sounds like overheating. Is your heatsink/case full of dust?

Not sure about temp to be honest. What would be my best program to try? Software Sandra? Also no the computer is about 2months old maximum.

normally when the fan speeds get higher means the temps are getting higher. Keep the temp monitoring program running and start going stuff that makes the fan go higher like you described. if it freezes and locks up and the temps high then you need to reset your current cooler or get a better one

Even if you ran something like Intel Burn Test (IBT) those temps aren't going to climb into the danger zone.

can you get us a similar shot with GPU-z? (link in post #9)


Also I just noticed Corsair and Gigbyte, is this a new system, have you set the ram voltage and timings, or at least verified the ram is stable?

ok click the bottom box in the right window that says keep refreshing in the background, leave it open, and play a little, then get an image with loaded GPU temps please.

Just trying to help rule out the obvious culprits;)

temperatures look fine on both the CPU and GPU, I have to think its either the memory playing up or software at this point (IE Drivers are messed up, PC may need a reg clean/defrag, something along those lines.

Well I see a few people over at TweakTown in the Gigabyte section have had issues with Corsairs newer 1600 memory, so it could be just as simple as the ram isn't stable in that board.

I myself just had issues with a low latency kit on both my P55 boards. I sent them to an ASUS user to see if it is my board or the memory, still waiting for shipping to reach the north pole though.


Are you on the latest bios for that board?

yes i have updated my bios. I have just tinkered round with the ram settings in the bios and gota BSOD on start up. Now i have gone back to the bios and loaded defaults. and it seems stable. but im only running my 1600 ram at 1066. I think im guna sell the parts individually and just stick with consoles.

Quite a troubling issue... maybe the motherboard is bad. Fans tend to spin really fast at system startup, before the BIOS kicks in and impliments fan speed control... it sounds to me like your motherboard is rebooting itself.

You know what, check your northbridge temps. Get hwinfo32 and prime95 and watch the nb temps... for me, it's MCP.

@hat ok will do that tomorrow now. I have been in the bios now and rest my ram to default just incase that was causing it to be unstable. But its really weird, you hear a rapid spinning noise like the computer was going to blow up then it would only stop when i powered off the computer. I really cant see it being a RAM problem tho :(
