Computer problems

Post by UP^Jaskaman on 10th September 2013, 18:54

I found out yesterday one of the reasons why I have huge FPS drops too often (not always because of the server). My cpu multiplier is changing from 10 to 20 (20 is correct one), meaning my GHz is changing from 1.8 GHz to 3.6 GHz when I play.
This might be because temperature is making CPU throttling, but I want to prevent this.
I did put CPU cooler to run higher RPM before (took away automatical "turbo" mode and set it to manual). Also CPU speed is controlled by CPU not OS (that setting was also on yesterday even it was doing that). I did set max GHz a bit lower after yesterday.
(Also I lost connection to our teamspeak IP and server 1 last night (not related to this problem), funny thing is I could join other public ts. I don't know what is causing this, but if I cant connect TS today, then this is the reason).

Checked temperatures, my CPU core temperatures went to 99C, I cleaned dust from cooler, now temperatures (max): Core 1 89C, Core 2 95c, Core 3 90C and Core 4 87C.
Still too high.. This is with half closed case. But reason is obvious.

As I said last night, you could try reapplying the thermal paste (makes sure you completely remove the old paste first from both the heatsink and CPU). But it sounds like you'll be buying a new CPU soon. The joy of computers!!!

Yeah temperatures are still high, and making gaming hard after huge fps drops when processor is dropping it's multipliers to protect itself from heat.
But at least I know the problem now. Putting a computer to the freezer would be a good idea Smile
