Overheating and then crashing

OKay, so I just got my new system. But I'm having problems already.

My AMD AM2 4600+ Processor is running extremely hot. It's at 52 degrees idle, and my PC crashes after about 10-15 minutes of use.

I've tried putting new thermal paste on, and still nothing. The cooling within the case is pretty good. I'm using an Antec P180 case.

I've thought about the possibility of the chip being corrupt or something, but maybe there are other reasons. Could someone help me out, please?

Is the heatsink sitting flush with the IHS?

Yes, it is.

I've just tried removing the CPU and putting it back again. Still no change.

Does the HSF feel warm to the touch?

Only very slightly, EpOx.

Does anyone else think that this may be a defective processor? Because I'm having another problem.

When I turn my PC on, the PC turns on, but nothing happens. I have to press the reset button after the power button for Windows to boot. =(

I'm thinking your thermal conduction is the issue if the HS is only slightly warm.

1: what thermal goop are you using, and please describe in detail how you applied it, thickness, spreading, etc.

2: Is it the stock HSF?

It may be an issue with your BIOS reading the temperatures wrong and then shutting your PC down as a precaution.

Does crashing the PC qualify as being a precaution? =(

Also, Dsio, it's stock HSF.

The thermal paste I used was the one my brother got with his HSF, since the pre-applied thermal paste was doing nothing. I can't remember the model of his HSF, but the paste was pretty thin. I applied a pea-sized blob in the middle of the processor, as I usually do.

Hope this helps.

Edit; PC has been running SpeedFan and NTune for over 30 mins now, and it hasn't crashed yet. Processor showing at 52 degrees celcius, and system temp. is at 51.

Edit2; Dsio, I just remembered the HSF model. It was a NorthQ heatsink that the thermal paste came with.

Considering this is a P180, I find that System Temperature hard to believe. My cheap Aerocool chassis keeps my PC at a crafty 32 C. I really do think your tmeps are being read wrong...

Even so, do you think that's causing the crashing, AP?

And, what about my power on problem I mentioned earlier? I have to press Power then Reset for the PC to boot properly. =(

It's starting to increasingly sound like we have a faulty motherboard on our hands....

In the BIOS is it possible to change the shutdown temperature value?

See, my PC isn't actually shutting down. It's freezing.

But yes, it is possible to change the shut down temperature. But the temps are stable at 52, so they shouldn't go anywhere near the shut down temperature.

I'm using a 500W ATX Xclio power supply. The auxillary connector is a 4 pin, but the motherboard requires 8, since it is an AMD motherboard.

Would this have anything to do with it?

It's a Brand X PSU, that's never good.

I hear that! How some ever, next time you may wish to see your PSU as foundation. 70$ isn't to much to pay to protect everything you plug in...
