Overheat?

On ocasion my computer locks up... and I really locks up mouse keyboard screen stops.... locks up

One way that I know it locks up is when I play a game call Comand and conquers Generals...

after a short bit of playing the game it locks up...

When I restart I check my cpu tempiture and its aways really high.


It doesen't do this when I disable hyperthreading...

I really like my New 3G P4 prescott....

Is this a problem with prescotts and how can I eliminate it.

sincerly

If the CPU shuts down abruptly for thermal reasons, you should get a report when you reboot. Thermal throttling would be more likely, where the clock rate is reduced to avoid overheating. More likely, your application has a threading error. Applying Windows 98 emulation by the compatibility tab method would force all threads to run on the same logical processor, "fixing" this type of threading error.

Listen I have a pentium 4 cpu running at 3200 mhz. I have apllied all the components in the right way. But there is a problem i think. My cpu is running almost from the beginning with the temperature of 52 * C. Then it goes up to about 62-64 when I play a game at high let's say. I was wondering if this is a normal temperature of if not what could be the problem :-? . Could the thermal grease not be enough ? If you have any suggestions please mail me at forgotten_dreams999@yahoo.com
