hello:) back again...
well my prob started like 4 weeks ago with my cpu fan getting noisy..asked around for reason and my 1st post here been bout it..got advices 2 give it a clean up and others 2 buy a market one...did both just 1 thing i did more which i dont know is right or wrong yet(removed the thermal paste) and as searched around for a new cooler(limited options where i live) only found: Cooler Master X Dream K641... my pc is 2 months old around..when i 1st bought it it was performing quite fine..then it started slowing down a bit and some also referred the prob 2 the stock cooler...right after i changed to X Dream i didnt feel any kind of change somehow..i mainly use the pc for gaming..mostly for just 1 game(silkroad online)be4 any prob shows up i was running like 10 clients with a max of 45% processor usage and temp never came anywhere near 50..since after the prob started 2 show up i've been testing with just 1 client and results been: 45% usage temp at idle be4 client: 39-45, as client works: 50-60(sometimes keeps rising and i wonder how come the pc doesn't shut as processor exceeded its max temp:62)(did no overclocking) so started searching around..cpu usage went fine as it was a matter of windows just depending on 1 core so i set it to use the 4...read around that an answer to my problem might be a bios update..updated the bios somehow helped by decreasing like 7°C..but yet remains the prob that my pc lags like a 90s one from the least thing even while just using msn:/ its getting to much annoy me and get me worried as i almost tried everything i could think of or find around by googling my prob...simply just cant at all use the pc for anything:/ am getting to doubt anymore is a matter of processor prob as without any kind of load on it it heats up and pc slows like hell(just what im thinking)..i hope to find my answer here(is it a processor prob? or might be mobo? or sth there affecting it to heat up?) and i kept it as my last option so as not to lose hope of having my maniac pc back 2 normal...really would hate having to take it back 2 the store i bought it from as is out of town and will be a great time waste:/...
some other issue i wanted to ask bout: what is unganged and ganged dual channel? does AMD support triple channel? will dual channel still work if i used 3x(2gb) ram sticks? or 2x1x1? some progs read i got dual channel activated but there on AMD forum they said 3 ram sticks r enough 2 get me back 2 single...false prog readings? or am yet on dual channel but not getting max performance? i moved out my 3rd ram stick till i get quite an ensured advice bout it..
hopefully i didnt bother:) thanks in advance:)
