Re: New Build, No POST
said by AsherN:That's because it CAN and WILL go that high, that fast if the HSF isn't properly attached and contacting the top of the CPU correctly! said by Kilroy:
rusdi - There is no way the CPU overheads in a fraction of a second. No way it goes from 75 degrees Fahrenheit to over 158 degrees in less than a minute, much less the second it is powered up. If it did Intel should get into the hot plate business.
Haven't done it since the P4 days, but even then a CPU would not clear POST before thermal checking. Given the added density, yes I could see it in that short amount of time.
Not trying to be argumentative here, since this obviously isn't the problem, it was just a suggestion as a place to start looking.
Hope you find the trouble. Good luck!
