Right so heres the story:
About a month ago my PSU died (blown fuse I believe) so I bought a new one (slightly higher wattage).
3 weeks ago I went on holiday for Florida for a fortnight, I returned to find that my mammoth CPU fan had broken the struts on the motherboard and fallen off.
I managed to fix the CPU fan back on with another fan holder attached to the mobo BUT I did not have any silicon paste..
Now my system runs fine unless I play games. Using Everest I have been monitoring my system's CPU temp which runs at 47 when idle and upto 85 when playing a game before it shuts down.
My question is:
Do you think I need a new CPU fan or just some silicon paste?
The idle temp seems ok but it really shoots up when I run the games..
Im running a AMD Athalon X2 4200+ and I dont have any other cooling fans ... think I need some?
