Refurbished HP Pavilion 17 Overheating/fan issue

  1. #31


    I have 2 x 4GB of Kingston KHX 1600 memory ( now working at 1632MHz) and they are fine but with my Kingston V300, 120 GB SSD I'm not elated with. Have couple of Kingston Traveler USB2 memories and they are not speed daemons either. Anyway, nothing of that produces any heat worth mentioning.

It's sort of like this...if you have 1.5 and OC it can hurt you, if you have 1.65 and don't OC it can hurt you. Does that make sense any?

    Now depending on the speed of the memory ( 1866, 1600, etc ) higher voltage may be required already. It's either 1866 or 2133 is the beginning limit for the 1.65v I forget which.
    I just took my ram out.... firgured out that i had 1333MHz RAM in a 1600MHz slot. does this mean anything?
    Only a bit lower speed, nothing critical, actual RAM controller is in the CPU and in those processors it's 1866 MHz controller.

    Okay. really worried about the health of the PC, might have to take it in somewhere... dont see why the fan should be this loud, and the CPU should be this Hot.

    That's definitely no good, they might not have put it together right.

    We'll then I guess I'll clean the fan, and maybe get a cooling pad.

    I don't have a warranty on it. Plus, I ordered it online.
