CPU Getting Too Hot And Overheating


If you are using a desktop computer and you experience a lot of overheating where the CPU shuts down automatically, you have to replace the CPU cooling fan. There are one or more cooling fans installed on the CPU case but the most crucial one is the one installed on top of the processor, the one placed on top of the heat sink.

This is the main cooling fan that makes the processor not to overheat. If your computer always turns off by itself because of overheating, you have to replace the CPU cooling fan. If you don’t know how to look for a compatible cooling fan for your processor, you can bring it to a computer shop or computer store to help you find a suitable cooling fan for your CPU.

Also, if overclocking is enabled on your CPU, you have to disable it. You have to disable any overclocking method running on your computer because this is the main source of overheating. When you overclock a processor, its clock speed goes beyond the factory default and the heat it produces is much higher than with normal operation which the default cooling fan may no longer support.

Users who overclock their CPUs always replace their cooling effects.
