Default Re: Computer stops responding, monitor goes black

Well all seems to be ok.. the fan came off the card again so i zip tied it down this time Muahah, like to see this baby come off now um how can you tell if thermal paste is going bad? or can it be bad if you use to much thermal paste??

I was checking my cpu and i used artic silver thermal paste last time and i believe i let my brother put it on might of been me doesnt matter really... and well looks like the whole tube was used theres alot of excess anyways its still gooey.. but my cpu under heavy load tends to pick up heat quickly now.

I have some radio shack thermal paste but im afraid to put it on there for one i dunno how crappy this paste is for two the room i am in is proab around 80-85 degrees sometimes..
