I have been having overheat problems. If you want to help visit:


Well, in one of the posts of my overheating thread (2nd one), a guy
said that my voltages looked screwed. i have never changed the
voltages and these are the voltage readings I have:

CPU: 1.33 V
Memory: 1.85 V
PCI-E: 3.33 V

Checked using ASUS Ai Booster, ASUS PC Probe, SpeedFan, and EVEREST.
Are they normal, because if they are not, then my overheating problem
may have something to do with this.


Re: Are these voltage readings normal?

sounds a bit too hot to me, the advice to clean the dust from the case and
heatsink is good, ideally blow the dust out rather than vacing. i would be
tempted to remove h/s and fan, clean, reapply thermal grease (good quality)
and reassemble. if this doesnt help then removing the side panel from your
pc will allow better air flow, if temps now stabilise correctly your case
needs more ventilation.

I fixed the overheat problem for now, by clearing the dust. Now, the
temperature is around 45C at idle and doesnt go over 52C no matter
what I do. Is this stable? Everythings pretty good, the computer is
extremely quiet, games run smoother. There is also another place to
add a fan on the back of the case. I will add another fan if needed
