Yes, you can try buying more fans for you system. I dont know why it is over heating, but this should fix it. Also a new processesor fan and heatsink should work.

Cool, let me know :tazz:

hello,

if the problem has just started recently it possible the guts of your pc are just dirty

you could get a can of the compressed air (at a computer store) and blow out the inside of your pc, if you feel comfortable opening your pc that is.....

good luck
