Help... Pc overheating

Hi guys.. two days from now, I accidentaly..heh heh ;).... broke my original intel processor fan and went out to a local computer store in my area to get a new one. I made sure that he applied the thermal paste once again and I bought a new fan+heatsink (Chinese) for Rs.450,

now, whenever I open a heavy graphics site or play a game or watch a movie... the intel active montior pops up just to tell me that my CPU temp is a whooping 75 degrees. Soon the screen freezes and the system crashes... can anyone tell me whats wrong????? Please help.

i guess u know whats wrong...

its ur chinese heat sink

u shud now buy a good custom heatsink....

like cooler master heat sinks...

check the price here

buy the cheapest one and it will work for u...

I have a 478 pin P4, the cooler master ones are for the LGA775 sockets..

and I forgot to mention that I changed the power supply recently.. can that be some sort of a factor??

Possible Reasons are :

1. Local Chinese Heat Sink. (im sure that's the reason)

2. Low Voltage. (Low power psu)

3. Too much Dust. (near back n front of procy socket)

4. Improper Fitting of Heat sink.

5. Intel Active Monitor is not working properly (anything is possible :P)

6. Bad Ventilation / Exhaust.

Just for Testing Use Your Previous Heat Sink + New Chinese Fan on it. It may worK.

that's all i got in my mind rite now :) . btw which Procy u have ?

1. Yeah, I think so too

2. I am gonna buy a core i7 this december (mega jump)… so, to save money… I bought an unbranded PSU

3. :) criticize me all u want… my PC is dust central… I broke the fan while trying to clean it… and see what happened… cleaning is a pretty bad thing after all.

4. I am sure the fitting is correct

5. I have never encountered any faulty intel stuff… but hey, there’s a first time for everything

6. My PC is situated in my T.V lounge and one side of the case is open…(where would the dust be from then??)

I am just gonna take it to the shop again… lets see what happens
