second.....is theory is stupid.....heat not only damages the sensitive components in the machine..it also increases the electrical impedance on the connections.....the closer the molecules are together..the better they conduct electricity...therefore when you heat something..the molecules get farther apart and lose conductivity (not a great deal mind you....but we are talking about sensitive stuff)

I think your Brother is pulling your leg, heat will definately kill the cp fast, maybe you should tell him that you are hooking up a water cooled system and pull out a garden hose....
Little brothers can sometimes be such a pain, trust me I have 2 of them...

dsenette, your reply is the best post I have ever read. LMAO!
So, HarryMay, out of all the computers your bro has tweaked and tweaked, how many of them actually lasted more than a month? If he was really into computers, wouldn't he come across all kinds of things about finding the best way to get the hot air out of the case? The only theory I can come up with is that your bro just heard about overclocking for the first time before he talked to you and read something like:
"...TURBOCHARGE YOUR MACHINE. The more voltage you send through your processor, the faster is will go and the hotter it will be..."
and then he stopped reading. Always remember, when it comes to computers, HEAT = BAD!

ack your brother about why all the over clockers use massive cooling systems to achieve the super high ghz ratings and ultra high fps.
ok seriously on the science front. heat is bad. it is a by product of inefficienct use of electricity. take a look at the incandescant light bulb. 100watts of power only generates about 20 watts of light and 80 watts of heat. compare that to a 30watt flourescent light that uses and generates 30 watts of power.

lol. We all get it. HEAT BAD

when my computer is on, it will restart out of nowhere. i think it has something to do with the heat of the computer, i have 3 fans, but for some reason does not cool down or keep it cool. another thing i come to thing of, could there be a virus on my bios or computer, it has not picked up anything. here are the specs below:
Windows XP home
MSI socket 478 P4 cpu 3.06
1 gb ram 3200
120GB hard drive space
ATI radeon 9600
can you please help, also what CPU frequency should i put? i have it at default, but what do you recommend?
