Have a Celeron D 340 which runs high (54 C idle, 64 C load). The CPU costs $50 with shipping.

I figure a new fan and heatsink will cost something close. Any problem with logic in thinking better to fail?
Do other components also burn and fail with high temperatures from cpu?


[I did buy a cheap new fan (less than $10) and it didn't lower the temperature. (used artic paste as well) .]
