pentium4 and funny fan!!!
ok my pentium4 of 3.06G with 1G cashe,,,it is only 533mhz, and goin off the intel site no other pentium 4 is higher than 533mhz, Its a ddr2 system with PCI graphics-this being an ATI radeon x1300 PRO super(super being because procards came standard with 256 on board memory,super was the boosted 512mb memory/again ddr2 and crossfire ready/I have 200gig sata hd and an external 100gig(sony).System memory is 1.5 gigs(3 half gig cards in 3 of the four memory exp ports) originally it had half a gig memory and a ATI radeon x300(128 mg on board)and all slots are PCI (forgot to mention the motherboard has also on board intergrated Radeon X-press200 graphic chipset- this i have disabled),although the graphic card is also AGP 8X compatible also by a slide of a switch, now when i run decent games i find that i need to stick a pedastal fan near my computer, you see when u turn mine on the fan goes through its test going full speed which is very noisey then it slows after about 3 seconds and the noise disapates, but lately its started goin really high for a sec or two then drop again and continue doin this randomly while playin games yet not in windows, yet the fan dosnt have any in between if you know what i mean(build up to the fast) it dosnt seem right, so the pedestal fan near the grill stops this(i do live in australia and it is mid summer at moment, ive been told it sounds like just a build of dust over it, the heat sink, and the sensor making the sensor report wrong. any one have any clues to this-definately not as bad as the burnin cpu but hey-i could be next,Oh and i have checked in my bios and it is still getting a temp reading/computer set to turn off at 90/warn me at 80 and it runs about 65-75, but just finishing there is no inbetween from the fan bein average to really fast when it does it??? any idea"s???
