running the pc shut down. Few minutes later (after fixing the problem) the
computer ran OK with no apparent problems. The CPU is a 3.2 Ghz Intel. Am I in
the clear? Few days have passed without problems. I've ran Memtest and a couple
CPU heave apps with no problems.
Shouldn't Intel CPU (maybe newer AMD's as well) have an auto shutdown before
Re: CPU shutdown due to heat? What should I expect?
Yes, odds are it is fine, but if it had gotten VERY hot, you
might consider taking off the heatsink and apply a fresh
coat of thermal compound as the original pad may degrade
from extreme temp. Before doing that, note whether the CPU
temp is higher or not... if it is same, leave it alone.
