Re: overheating semperon

the fan was jampacked with dust and the copper was croaded so i cleaned the fan and used sandpaper to increase the heatsink's surface area a bit.
it now can play hd video on the 1.8 ghz single core with out overheating however i t dose flicker so i watch 480p
it handled 1080p but was horibley unwatchable. however it didnt shut down or burst into flames so yay

Re: overheating semperon

I'd expect that, unless you have a really nice GPU in that machine, 480p is probably the best you can expect without glitching on that hardware...so yay is right! monkey


Yes; as a matter of fact, I am a cop.  Why do you ask? cool

Re: overheating semperon

video card drivers installed? my overheating issues were solved after fix up the drivers. my laptop has 2 cards, and intel integrated (it's drivers where fine) and an ati radieon discrete. once i got the ati drivers working ok, i setup vga-switcheroo to allow me to toggle when which card was activated. just running the intel my heat dropped ~80%. just running the ati (with the correct drivers) my heat was decreased ~35%. maybe something to look into.

Re: overheating semperon

checkout powertop - a better power management scheme might help.

also have a look at lm-sensors and fancontrol.
