The overheating problem (ie. thermal shutdown) is most likely caused by a faulty CPU fan or dust clogging the CPU fan and heatsink.
Check the BIOS CPU fan speed could be set too low, check the fan speed/temperature setting.
If this problem is not fixed, then the CPU will eventually fail.
Check the fan to see if it spins freely, if not then replace the faulty fan.
If the fan and heatsink are cligged with dust, loosen and remove the dust and use a can of compress air to blow away the dust.

My intel 945gtp board cpu overheating


A) I would use the Intel Pentium D, model D820.
It's a Dual Core processor with 2MegaByte of L2 cache, and an 800MegaHertz Front Side Bus. (800MHz FSB)

I would also use PC2-6400 ram memory, (DDR2 Sdram at 800MHz)
Using PC2-5300 (DDR2 Sdram at 667MHz) is taxing on the Processor.

If you are using an Intel Pentium D, model D506. It's maximum Front Side Bus is 533MHz. I would NOT use DDR2 Sdram at 667MHz.
Also is taxing on the Processor.

Why?
Primer:

The cache for a Processor is the FIRST memory area, the Processor accesses.
(L1, and L2 for the processors you named. Newer models have an L3 cache also)

It is a small memory area for the processor, and operates at the same frequency rate as the processor does.
(Frequency Rate = 'Speed')

The next memory area the Processor accesses is the Ram Memory.
Ram Memory typically operates at HALF of the FSB of the Processor.

With a D820 you are making the processor's FSB support Step Down, to use the 667MHz ram memory.
With the D506 you are making the processor's FSB support Step Up, to use the 667MHz ram memory.

http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d945gtp/sb/CS-026628.htm

More work for the Processor = More Heat

B) Next, how you applied the new Thermal Paste.

Notice I stated N-E-W.

This is because thermal paste can dry up, and also loose it's thermal conductivity properties.
Don't skimp in this area. Thermal paste is C-H-E-A-P!

C) What kind of thermal paste did you use?
Primer:
The thermal paste that has real silver in it, is an Excellent thermal paste, BUT needs to be applied properly.

Why?

Because silver is an excellent conductor of ELECTRICITY, as well as heat.
If too much is applied the excess will ooze off, once the Processor reaches operating temperature.
Means the thermal paste will ooze down off of the Processor, onto any solder joints it can reach, AND the contact pins of the Processor.

This can cause a Short Circuit. May just cause overheating until the wrong solder joints, or processor pins are reached, by the oozing thermal paste.

http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/274

Proper cleaning of the top of the Processor, and bottom of the Heatsink

The old thermal paste, or thermal pad, needs to be THOROUGHLY removed. Use a plastic scraper
(Old credit card, or one you got in the mail? "Now you too can have a XXXXXX credit card!" Bah, sheesh!)

Scrape off as much as you can. Then use Q-tips dipped in Isopropyl Alcohol. (Rubbing alcohol)
I use 91 percent, (91 percent alcohol, and 9 percent water)
You can use 70 percent, but I do NOT recommend 50 percent.
(50 percent alcohol, and 50 percent WATER)

CAUTION!!!!
Isopropyl Alcohol is EXTREMELY FLAMMABLE!!
Use in a WELL ventilated area with NO sparks or flames present!

Takes a LOT of alcohol dipped Q-tips. The top of the Processor, and bottom of the Heatsink, needs to be THOROUGHLY cleaned.
Clean enough you could literally eat off of it. (But DON'T)

D) When you put the Heatsink/Fan combo on the Processor, did you hold the motherboard in the air, and look across the motherboard with a 'birds eye view', at how the Heatsink is sitting on the Processor?

CANNOT be tilted. Has to have the entire Heatsink area, sitting flat on top of the Processor. If you can see ANY, daylight in-between the top of the Processor, and bottom of the Heatsink, START OVER.

E) What kind of Heatsink/Fan combo are you using? May be too small for the job, or not the correct one.

F) Does the computer tower have plenty of room around it? You are supposed to have at least 3 Inches of room, all around the computer case. In your instance I would use more.

G) Taking the side cover of the computer case off, to help cool the Processor. This = NO, unless you have an external fan blo-wing air into the open case.
By taking the cover off you are decreasing the cooling power, of the computer case fans.

The Intel Pentium D, model 820 can use up to 95 Watts of power.
At that maximum wattage usage, the maximum allowed temperature
is 64.1 degrees Celsius.

You are correct. Shouldn't be at 65 degrees Celsius just loafing. (Idle)

I have a "p4 processor with 3.06ghz speed";i recently having problem of overheating and my temperature is rising to 100degree when CPU utilization is 100%.. .This all happened when i took out my heat-sink...


you should make sure that the heatsink and fan are clean and dust free, then you should clean all the thermal paste off with som alcohol(preferably 90% pure isopropyl alcohol)but 75 will work too make sure the top of the processor is clean also,then reapply the thermal paste.that should help,but if temps still run high then you should look for a better cooler.

I cannot remove the fan to replace the cpu chip


Sounds like the processor is getting an overheating code and shutting the system down or the processor is cooked and can no longer function. If you are trying to get an intel cooling fan off an intel chip, there should be four posts holding the fan in place, these posts turn 90 degrees and then when all four are turned , pull the fan off the mount. If yours does not have the four post mount, then it may have clips on either side of the heatsink, these should just be pried away from the mount and the heatsink will be free. If the heatsink is stuck to the processor, you will need a flat plastic pry tool to wedge under the lip of the proc and heatsink to separate them.

Problem in overclocking my Processor.


1: You problem is your power supply, PSU. When you try to give more power to your CPU by overclocking it, it doesn't have enough wattage, or power, to get the CD drive, or your sound card to work. This is why the CD drive works again when the CPU isn't overclocked. So, in this case, to overclock your CPU, you would have to get more power to your system by getting a more powerful PSU, or one with more wattage. How much you can overclock your processor depends on a variety of different things. Your RAM, PSU, HDD, CD drive, etc. I would not go past about 3.4ghz with your processor, however, a "max overclock" is hard to determine.

2: The maximum temp for your processor is 70C, 158F. I would try to keep your temperatures under 60C to ensure your processor doesn't "die early" on you. The multiplier cannot be changed, only the FSB can be changed. You should be able to create a "profile" in bios and set it to your default so that it loads up automatically when you boot up. Make sure you find a stable configuration before you make a default profile.

Processor Overheating


It is important to use good quality thermal paste like Arctic Silver. You only need a very small amount on the heat sink. Too much is as bad as none at all. You care just trying to create a thin layer of thermal paste to fill in the tiny gaps between the processor and the heat sink. If this does not help an aftermarket heat sink with more fins and a better fan might be needed.

My notebook overheats!!!!!


I have never heard of that about AMD cpus, on the contrary it has always been the Pentiums who overheated, nevertheless, it does sound like you are running a little hot, I would suggest a laptop cooler like an Xpad, that should cool it down down at least 5-10 degrees, try it you will be amazed what a difference they make.

Computer hangs after 5 minutes from boot


Check the CPU fan (working) and heat sink as these over time clog up with fluff and dirt overheating CPU also check the rear of power supply for blocked ventilation holes

Overheating? Processor running at half speed?


If the PC boot and start I believe your processor is OK, it's very unlikely that a bad processor can start.
Normally the average temperature of a processor is between 40-50 degree C. Your processor is overheating and it will not last too long.
Please look at the link here below http://processorfinder.intel.com/List.aspx?ProcFam=483&sSpec=&OrdCode=
and see if you can reconize your processor. The number on the left is the same number printed on your processor (You have to remove the fan again).
As a second test I suggest you to download the Asus manual of your motherboard and verify that you don't have any jumper that you are missing.
If you want to post the motherboard type I can further help you.
