Aoe:
Yeah older card like 4000 series AMD ran hot like upto 100.

But newer cards, 500 or 600 series nvidia, 6000 or 7000 series AMD, they want to be under 80 really.

If the 80 for the temperature is the cpu though, that is very high. If your cpu runs above 50 you should fit a decent after market cooler with some quality thermal paste (again a good independent will help you with this better than a mass retailer).

You dont need a fancy water cooler or anything, just get one of those with a big heat sink over the cpu and a side on fan drawing air into the sink.

E.g. http://www.cclonline.com/product/63469/CAC-SXHH6-U02/CPU-Coolers/Xigmatek-Aegir-SD128264-Double-Layer-H-D-T-Cooling-System/CLR0083/

if your not comfortable fitting a cooler (you normally have to take the mother board out to attach a fixing plate), get someone to fit it for you.

Most of these off the shelf prebuilt computers have heat issues, they never seem to come with enough fans and whatnot. As a pc gamers it is well worth learning how to build your own, colleges should run night classes in it reckon.

OP  10/26/12 6:49:41 AM#22

I am a 50+ year old housewife and if I was still living in Asia I would experiment but I am living in Italy and my husband will not just let me take apart a 3000 euro machine. I can just manage changing a video card like I did on his machine the older dell but what you asked me to do would require a bit more finesse and courage worthy of bearding a lion.

 

The core temperature is about 41-43 degrees celcius ; all 4 cores. The video card is the one that is around 74 degrees and went to 80 + on SWTOR only. D3 used to run hot it but yesterday it was running at 71 degrees probably they improved that issue have no idea have not played it for months , just installed it yesterday.

 

When a game is playing the core temps go up to 54 degrees.

Your temps are ok

Your issue is something else, I was alarmed the cpu was in the 80s but its not, so don't worry about it.

If you don't have case fans you might want to fit them (no harder than fitting a video card) one at the front to draw air in,one at the back to blow it out.

But it looks more like a memory fault to me, especially with gw2 as gw2 is very sensitive to memory faults.

The computer is huge  I cannot lug it about and the PSU is 875 watts.

 

Yes I monitor temperatures all the time have one gadget and small program that monitors it. This card runs about 71-74 degrees when I play games. But Swtor made it run to the 83 degrees  and the alarm went off. I also have an alienware command centre which can increase PCI fan speeds  and the hard drive fan speeds up to 100%.


Dell certainly will come out on off-warranty, but it will cost a pretty penny, both in labor and in parts (they mark up repair parts a lot, sometimes more than double the original cost). You may have better luck with a local shop. But if price is no object, then just call Dell out.

Well it has become so bad now I cannot even surf the internet without a BSOD or even open some random folder before the computer restarts. Could this be a intel chip the processor itself deteriorating ?

This does sound very much like you have some faulty RAM. Memory can pass basic tests and still be faulty, it has happened to me before. A good program to try is memtest86 (memtest86.com), it runs from a bootable floppy or DvD/CD and is free. Takes up to an hour or so to fully test the RAM, but it will probably find errors faster than that. Even if it passes the test at least you will be sure it is not the RAM, or if it fails you can get it replaced.

I did 5 passes in the end and all is okay no errors.

 

I was just wondering if the video card is the problem could the slot be the one damaging the card since it will be a second video card replacement since that is what the dell people said and coming tomorrow to replace the video card again.Sigh  they will probably take away my accidental upgrade and give me back the 480 .The had made a mistake and given me a 580 in August.

  1. Open your Start menu and type "view reliability history" into the search box.
  2. Find the apps that are crashing in the graph that are denoted by a red circle with a white X in it.
  3. Click on one of those red critical failure icons that list a game in the details text box shown below.
  4. In the details box below double-click the related Critical Event under Source.
  5. Copy and paste the results of that. (see example below)
  6. Do steps 4 & 5 for more of the crashes if the details change between each crash.
Doing that might give someone here more information that will help fix your problem.

Also turn off the auto restart upon BSOD settings. Doing so may mean you will have to cold boot your system when you receive a BSOD. You can turn it back on later if you prefer.

In Win 7 > Start Menu > in right column right click on Computer > Select Properties > Advanced tab > Startup and Recovery seciton > Settings button > System Failure section > uncheck Automatically restart.

That will at least let you see the BSOD to find out what the stop error codes are.

This is the Dell website page describing some frequent BSOD error codes: http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/kcs/document?c=us&cs=19&docid=549031&l=en&s=dhs

They came and changed the video card and I reran the pc diagnostic but this time that earlier failure did not appear and it passed everything. Do you think the problem has been solved or will it return in like 2 months like before ?

The Furry Doughnut will stress your graphics like nothing else currently available. If you run that for a couple of hours without issue then you should be good to go. If it doesn't, you'll have something with which to bitch at Dell again. You'll also get some serious tech credit if you get a real tech and not a phone zombie.

Furmark 1.10.3

Just be sure you pick the right "Download Now!" button. Otherwise you'll be inundated with offers for a bunch of crap you don't want or need.  Today, it's the pale green button with the large black arrow on it.

Also keep an eye on the GPU's fan speed.  I wouldn't let it get beyond 90% of maximum speed while running the burn in test.

Cheyane,

I would have said it was the graphics card although the CPU temperature when playing a game seems a tad high. The possible solutions to getting lower temperatures depend on a number of things and your actual computer is the first. I too own an Alienware Aurora (older model I reckon) but even when its running under load, the CPU temperature has never gotten above 47ºC.  I let the command center control the fans etc. If you have the case with the active vents then use thsoe to periodically vent the fans else use the Thermal Controlelr to do it. Either method will literally blow out any dust bunnies in it and if done while you aren't playing any games, it'll also reduce the temperatures.

 

HTH
