6098P cpu overheating

Go to solution Solved by SignatureSigner,

If the thermal paste is dry and crusty it needs replaced. 

i have a build with gtx1050 and 6098p since 2017 and i have been using it for games like overwatch, rainbow six, etc.

 

last year, for some reason when i played apex legends on it, it kept crashing after matches (as soon as match was over). i thought that was a game specific issue but then it started happening in overwatch as well. i cleaned up the stock cpu cooler and still no good. i went ahead and replaced the cpu fan and it worked for some time but started crashing after few days. the PC now crashes after 3 /4 matches.

 

during the games i can monitor my gpu temp to be around 65-85 C throughout the game. so to monitor my cpu temp, i ran benchmark (Prime95) and the cpu goes from 40 C to 90 C in 1 min (and keeps rising). i closed the benchmark before it hit 100 C.

 

i noticed that the thermal paste was is very dry...i don't know how thermal paste is supposed to be like...

also there is 1 intake fan on the case and no extra fans except the one in power supply. i clean out the dust manually at regular intervals.

 

can someone suggest what should i do to prevent cpu overheating?

 

thanks in advance.

sorry, for the dumb question. but is thermal paste specific to cpu or a single type of paste works with all cpus?

Exactly. Thermal paste needs to be somewhere in between solid and liquid. It needs to be a bit goopy but not runny.

 

The 6098P is only a dual core chip. Shouldn't be hard to cool.

All types. Works for GPUs too.

definitely needs a re-application. luckily there are tons of videos on youtube about how to apply thermal paste, my favorite application method is simply a pea sized dot in the center. Pickup a pack of Arctic MX-4 and you'll be set
