You are proud of your computer. It offers entertainment and productivity, but sometimes everything goes wrong and you’re left with a subpar performing machine. This is us, our machine, AMD Ryzen 5 5600X A desktop computer running Windows 10 gave me one year of service. But it all went wrong. Even at idle, the CPU temperature nearly doubled. We had to get to the bottom of it!
Below are the steps I took to get the system working again.
The focus of this project is to identify the cause of thermal issues in desktop PCs. It’s been running fine for over a year, but lately it’s been running warmer than normal.the desktop is Fantex P360A caseand replaced the stock AMD cooler for an AMD Ryzen 5600X keep quiet! Shadow Rock Slim 2 cooler.
we Checked CPU temperature I was using Core Temp and it was far from standard. CPUs typically operate between 37 and 42 degrees Celsius. When gaming or video editing, it can reach the range of 50-60 degrees Celsius. However, the problem we faced was a CPU temperature of 75 degrees Celsius while performing our daily tasks, which are mostly browser-based work, Slack and GIMP image editors.
What causes my CPU to overheat and how do I fix it? It took me a bit of research to figure this out. First, check the running processes in Task Manager.
1. Windows[スタート]Right click on the menu and[タスク マネージャー]Choose.
2. Identify the process causing the problem. The identifier could be high CPU usage or power usage. For power,[電力使用傾向]The column helps identify if the load is higher than normal. In this scenario, power usage tends to be very high and typically low. This is what caused our problem.
3. When process mattersfor example Windows Explorer, Right click on the process,[再起動]Choose. This will reset the process and may fix the problem.
Four. When process doesn’t mattert, e.g. gaming services, right click on the process When Select End Task.
Five. Use Task Manager to reopen the application/tool identified as the problem. If the problem does not recur, it is resolved. In this example, I reopened Windows Explorer and navigated to the folder containing the project I was working on. After a while, the desktop PC’s fan picked up momentum, indicating that the CPU was overheating again.
A little research suggested that Quick Access, an addition to the toolbar that allows quick access to recently opened files and folders, was the problem. To disable quick access, do the following:
1. Open Windows Explorer.
2. [表示]then click[オプション]Click.
3. [プライバシー]and,[最近使用したファイルを表示する]uncheck the When Select the folder in quick access,[OK]Click. You will lose the auto-generated list of commonly used files and folders from Windows Explorer, but feel free to add your own files/folders to the list.
Four. Check Task Manager to see if power/CPU usage is back to normal.
Preventative maintenance is never fun, but spending a little time now can pay off later.You need to keep your PC clean, both physically and electronically. You also need to keep your system up-to-date and protected. So let’s review our list of household chores to keep your PC running.
keep your pc clean
Dust, dirt, and pet hair can get into your build, clog filters, and heat up your system. Ultimately, the machine has to work harder, which reduces overall performance. Once a year he recommends giving your PC a thorough cleaning to keep it running longer. Before performing these operations, be sure to turn off the power and unplug the PC from the outlet.
Wipe the outside of the case with a cloth and IPA. This will remove fingerprints, grease and dirt.
- Periodically remove the filter from the case and clean it. A clogged filter restricts airflow and increases case temperature.
- Use a stiff paint brush to clean the fan blades and the inside of the case. Be careful as the components are fragile and expensive.
- Clean the inside of the case with a can of compressed air. Do this outside or in the garage as it creates a lot of dust. You can use a little isopropyl alcohol (IPA) to clean stubborn marks. It will evaporate quickly, but give it time before connecting the power supply.
- Clean the CPU cooler with a paint brush, compressed air, and a clean cloth. The fan pulls air over the heatsink, so both should be cleaned.
- Replace the CPU thermal paste. Thermal pastes/compounds often dry out and become insulators rather than heat conductors. This should be done when the CPU or cooler has been changed, or if the PC has been in storage for some time.
- Clean your GPU When Replace thermal paste. Keeping your GPU clean will help you get the best performance out of your investment. This should be done if the PC has been stored for some time.
- Keep the power supply ventilation slots free of dust and debris. Do not open the PSU to clean inside. There are some large capacitors, so it can be a nasty shock.
- Wipe the outside of the case with a cloth and IPA. This will remove fingerprints, grease and dirt.
