Xbox Wants To Lock Up Constantly :(
Posted 07 March 2004 - 05:06 AM
My CPU is running at 107 F, is that normal? My mobo is at ~120 F.
Any help here would be much appreciated!

if indeed your mobo is 130 degrees I'd say you got a cooling issue or a bad mobo which has the Vcore voltage for the chipset set too high... just my guess.

I'm using Evox and I have all my IGRs turned off. It seems like the random locking up occured imeediatly after I accidentially hit the "Master Ninja Tournament" option in Ninja Gaiden. It tried to update my MS dash so I turned it off half way through. Could this have messed something up? Any info here would be much appreciated!

"you sure you are reading the MB and CPU temps right? "
Yes. It clearly reaches 130 F (not celcius, but it's still hotter than it should be, right?)
"if indeed your mobo is 130 degrees I'd say you got a cooling issue or a bad mobo which has the Vcore voltage for the chipset set too high... just my guess."
What would you recommend doing to fix this problem?
The odd thing is this:
The longer the Xbox is on, the less chance it has of locking up, ie, if it's only been on 15-30 minutes, it's more likely to lock up. If it's been on ~60 min, it probably wont. Over 60 minutes and I'm pretty golden. None of these times are scientific, but it just seems like the longer its on, the better it will perform (less likely to lock up)

I can feel warm air coming out the back vents. Not hot, heater air, but it's slighly warm.
I'm using a solderless Matrix mod, if that helps anything.
