Why not completely clean out the system, remove the fan, replace thermal paste and blow out all the dust from the heatsink?Oh, so that's the case. Does the forced 60 Hz work well, then? I've been thinking to move on to Seven, along with upgrading my PC. A 500 GB HDD, a Phenom II, a new mobo, some DDR3 RAM and a new case.
My CPU shuts down from overheat lately, as it reaches 75ºC easily with Dolphin, No$, newer PC games, and sometimes even PCSX2. Worst part is, for the past few days temps haven't risen from 20-25ºC. Once Summer actually kicks in about a month down the line, temps will be at 30-35ºC, and I won't even be able to play Warcraft 3 without it shutting down. -_-
