temperature monitors in programs like everest are always inaccurate with me. so that's not a big deal. plus <60c is fine, though on and amd athlon 64 you shouldn't get temps like that unless the ambient temperatures are really high or you're overclocking - or both.

with 30c ambient i get temps of 53c load and i have an athlon 64 3700+ oc'd to 2.531 ghz.

look for amd's cool n quiet driver, that usually mesaures temps pretty well.

Dont Bump topics, we dont like it, and i dont like it its the quickest way to getting no replies.

Considering the topic tile is "overheated computer?" it would imply you are concerned about the temperature of your system. Also since fan speed is usually a main factor in fan speed YOU DO care about heat.

You clean a system by unplugging it and and opening up, you remove or immobilise all the fans in the system, you then use compressed air or a hoover to remove all the dust in the system. you then clean the fans which usually need a only barely damp cloth to get the dust and dirt from the fans blades, you then put everything back together and make sure all the fans are mobile again.
