simple....electronic devices + heat = death ... a CPU that's constantly over temperature will die quite quickly...and as you've seen...will cause the system to hang....the more times the system hangs while processing data...the more likely the HD is to get corrupted...meaning the more chances of those precious pictures of the kids going goodbye...

for some graphical representation...download speedfan (google it) and install it...that little flame icon that shows up next to the CPU temp will probably get the point across

You not only have temp problems you also have a power supply problem. Your 12 volt line is down to 10.88. Your just lucky the computer don't lock up or blue screen on you all the time. My athlon 2400 computer was locking up when the voltages were down around 11.7 or lower. Replacing the cheap power supply with a good ( but slightly loud) thermotake 430 watt unit fixed the problem.
