KEEP IT TIDY ROUTE the wires out of the way, clean out dust make sure it is all pristine, perfect airflow check air is actually reaching the cpu and gpu make sure no obstructions near ANY fans or heatsinks, buy aftermarket cooler.
That seems to be the solution.
Also make sure you dont have any overclocking features enabled by accident in BIOS or anywhere else.
That should FINALLY solve your problem.

But routing the wires will make a 80% diffrence and depending on how dirty it is probably ckeaning 20% if its covered in a layer of dust the 80% again.
I dont think you will need to buy a new heatsink and fan keep us posted rmco2003.

If you are talking about the heatsink you probably wont need to remove it anyway if it cools sufficiently after you finish rerouting and cleaning with a can of air, just remeber to keep a vacum near where you blasr with the air as all you would be doing is moving the air about within the case.
And of you go here: http://theone008.blogspot.com/ (my blog) you can see how I fared with my first computer build mainly focus on the wiring that is how you want it all the cables out of the way.
Of course I now have a modular PSU and X1900XT so things look different.
Oh and what do you think of the lighting under my table? Stupid idea or cool?

Anyway I've cleared the air passage to allow air to flow across the processor, but this hasn't helped at all. I still get the same problem of my PC throwing out a lot of heat whenever I go into fullscreen on a game. This only happens in fullscreen games, nothing else, just fullscreen games. It's not dust, thermal paste is on my processor and my GPU has a seperate fan taking up a seperate PCI slot. Any suggestions?
