Default Why has my idle temp jumped 10 degrees in a week

hi,

One week ago my cpu idle temp was around 42 degrees C. This week it
has jumped to 52 degrees, while the case temp has remained at a
constant 35 degrees.

A week ago it only got to 52 dC under heavy load!

Why would this happen? The HSF is still on solidly & is running at the
same fan speed as when i bought it 18 months ago.

Is it possible the CPU is defective

Did you remove the heat-sink and re-seat it?
Perhaps the ceramic compound that came with the heat-sink, has decided to
flake away?.


i just recently bought a new case with more fans & removed the HSF,
cleaned it & reapplied artic silver... since it has run around 42 dC
but all of a sudden has jumped 10 degrees

after cleaning fan a drop of 3 and1 machine oil would be good.

Hi

My P3 1ghz was 60c - 63c idle at one point, i removed the hsf cleaned the
base rubbed thermal compound onto base to get rid of cracks/gaps

reapplied
thermal compound to processor core but back together now my temps are
reporting around 50 - 53c idle :-) got a 10 degree c drop in temp by just
cleaning the hsf and reapplying thermal compound.


i did this recently. i was thinking that maybe i should lightly sand
the bottom of the HS smooth. ??

maybe CPU core voltage is not correct and is variable?
