Hey guys,

Lately my computer has been running very slow, and shuts down because of cpu too high tempature. I’ve changed the cpu fan twice now, but it hasn’t helped.

I have a geforce gtx 960
intel core i5-6402p @ 2.80 ghz
16gb of ram

and i got it back in 2015, so it’s a little old. Would you reccomend a new intel core? (i9)

or fan, etc.

did you replace the thermal paste?
when you changed the fan did you also change the heat sink?
other options are to get a bigger heat sink and fan.
I replaced the stock fan and heat sink on my Intel Core i3 with a 120mm fan and heat sink to fit and the CPU runs at 25 degrees Celsius under load.
have you over-clocked the CPU?

Hi Bruce,

Thank you for the quick reply, when I changed the fan I did not apply thermal paste, is this an essential thing to do for it to not overheat when used? I also have not changed the heat sink, only the fan. And I do not recall changing anything regarding the cpu.

Most time the heat sink doesn't need to be replaced,just cleaned.. It would be prudent that you change out that thermal paste with new paste.. Also be aware that this cpu may not have paste but a thermal sticky pad,just peel that off and take off the heat sink slowly.. Clean area with rubbing alcohol using a clean cloth.

Thermal paste should be no thicker than a credit card. (to much will make it over heat as well). Any excess paste,when you put back the heat sink, that comes out must be wiped off .

and just to clarify, I didn't mean heatsinks go bad and need replacing, but to consider getting a better, or bigger, one than the stock standard it came with. :)
