My PC actually has a digital thermometer readout on the front panel. I run about 45C.

"temp3" is perhaps just a failsafe setting somewhere in your motherboard's BIOS. I doubt your PC is running that hot, or anywhere near that, based on your other temps. I've also found that a lot of the software monitors do not accurately decode the system's temps from the BIOS-reported sensors... and can read inaccurately. Even the motherboard's own BIOS utility (PC Heath, etc.) often reports inaccurate readings for it sensors. Sometimes a true probe is the only reliable solution for accurate temperatures. The real delta (temp. difference. idle, loaded, etc.) is usually more important to know on your components instead of a certain exact number.

But enough of the techno-blather...

A heatsink connectivity issue or failing CPU fan can lead to intermittent crashes/ reboots, esp. under CPU load like rendering. When in doubt, pull of the CPU heatsink/fan and check for that very thin seal of thermal paste. You can read tomshardware.com or anandtech.com for more info/ insight on these issues.

HTH, and good luck!

Hi Rafael

I had a similar problem on a "non-editing" PC - the case was too hot to touch!! To check whether it's a heat issue, try running with the cover off and a desk fan blowing air over the innards - it isn't a permanent solution, but it might sort your immediate export problem, and confirm whether heat is indeed the problem!

Be careful running with the case open though!!!

Hope this helps

I found out that my hard disks are running between 32C and 42C and that the "temp3" was simply a reference number (as a matter of fact it never changes). Now I still don't know what is causing this. Can it be that the cpu is too hot? Motherboard? Which is a good software to monitor cpu/motherboard temperature? And what is the "normal" temperature for them?

As of now I'm working without the pc's "carcass". I also checked the fans and they are all working, BUT I do feel the base of motherboard fan is a bit hotter than it should be. And also there's a "metal thing" near the graphic card that feels a bit hot too...as a result this seems to be warming up the graphic card. I don't think I have any choices here. I will have to take my pc to a repair shop...which sucks, because I don't trust anyone with my pc. For almost a decade no matter how hard I always managed to fix everything on my pc...but I have to throw down the towel this time.

I installed 2 demos to try to pinpoint what is going on.
Sensor View, which monitors the following temperatures:
CPU
SYS
AUX
HD0
HD1
HD2
CPU CLOCK

And then BurnInTest, which performs a test using ALL components at the same time.

While I performed this test all the temperatures on Sensor View were normal. They went up a little bit, but nothing out of the ordinary...except AUX, which as raising fast. I actually stopped the test when the AUX temperature was at 62C. The problem is that I have no idea what AUX is, so I still cannot tel exactly where the problem is.

AUX can vary. What motherboard and graphics card do you have?

Can you take a photo of the motherboard and highlight the hot part?

The "metal thing" is probably the heatsink over the chipset (often called the North Bridge). If there's no fan on this, you could rig one up, or blow one in the vicinity of it. Most of the major motherboard vendors will now have a fan over the chipset.

A big 120mm case fan can work wonders on airflow without creating too much high-pitched noise. I have one blowing across my five hard drives and it keeps their temps under control.

HTH,

Ok, I have uploaded 2 pictures of the places that get hot. The red square is the exact location where the heat is concentrated.

Yup, that's your heatsink on the chipset. Use a fan per my previous post.

Also, dust looks to be pretty bad on your CPU heatsink. Use a small vacuum (with a grounding strap!) and get rid of it. Get to your power supply and everywhere else, while you're at it. Excessive dust will lead to overheating problems.

BTW, those compressed air canisters just blow the dust around (to get sucked right back up by your PC). That's why I recommend a vac.

HTH,

Thanks, Brian. Tomorrow is a holiday here in Spain, so everything will be closed, but on tuesday I'm buying a better cooling system for sure. I'll let you guys know when things are back to normal.

If there was any doubt at all it was an overheating issue, now Im absolutely sure. I turned on a full sized fan at full blast and pointed it right at the pcs interior, then I tried to export the videos from premiere. It managed to finish exporting for the first time. After it was done I touched the fan I posted the picture of (the one on the motherboard) and it was VERY hot. Tomorrow I have some "cool" shopping to do.
