Random reboots are still better than dead motherboard/CPU. Got new motherboard cheap and now hunting for decent CPU.

What socket Hal?
I think this is fool-proof but could you just try it for me please? • There are 10 types of people in the world; those who understand binary, and those who don’t

It was Intel® Core™ i3-2100 on 1155. I didn't even use full potential of the rig. When I got my hands on it I was still trying to figure out how to cruch properly on this PC. Until I decided to replenish thermal paste on CPU. I dropped CPU on the socket when removing it and damaged pin(s). Tried to fix the socket to no avail. Motherboard powers up. Fan spins and immediately stops.

I got new motherboard shortly after that but I am still hunting for reasonably cheap processor. I had one ready to purchase but someone else was faster than me :(

I could give away the CPU if anyone is interested.

If you were in the US I'd send you a i7-3770.

BTW, the new PSU fixed the random and increasingly frequent reboots. Stable is good.

Good to hear you have it under control. Is your CPU always under 100% load?

It's my office system now and runs other stuff but It runs at no less than 80% all the time. I haven't run a GPU app yet. Guess I need to test that before I declare victory.

I don't know where this question came from.
BTW I got my i7-4770 and test run with old Intel CPU cooler. Works fine but hits 92 degrees under full load :shock:

Stock intel cpu coolers won't keep an i7 cool, not if it's got turbo enabled and you run it wide open. You'll need something like a Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO or better.

I had everything enabled :lol:
I wouldn't try overclocking unless I had better PSU. Anyway, new cooler is on the way (Arctic Freezer 7 Pro v2 Quiet CPU Air Cooler with 92mm Fan) with 125W TDP.

I almost binned a socket 1155 board and i7-3770 because I used the stock cooler and It couldn't cope. And I thought -at first- the board or the CPU had died on me.....

It looks like I am not the only one who tried to create vulcano inside PC.

Even with only 4 task running and extras turned off temperatures were hitting 75+ with Intel stock cooler.
I got proper cooler today and I am back in the game. Temps are around 52 degrees with all bells and whistles enabled in BIOS.

I ran a I7 - 3770K overclocked, flat out on all cores with stock cooler. The cooler detached from the board, CPU hit 105 degrees and survived. Asus Board is warped but still running a few years later. They are tough chips.
