Hey monkeydluffy


Monitor the temperatures of your video card, with either Everest, or ATI Tool. It may be overheating, like you said.

Try reinstalling the drivers, or get the latest one.

No, it's not in the suite. ATI Tool is a separate program, to monitor the temperature of your graphic card, as well as overclock.

70C?!!...That is another reason. You should be staying below 60C, on load.

Stock coolers usually aren't very good at cooling. But should be good enough, if you're not overclocking or anything.

You should either get an aftermarket thermal paste, like Arctic Cooling's MX-2. It's only like $6.

Or get some more case fans, to increase the airflow in the system.

It's probably the airflow in your case. How many intake and exhaust fans, do you have in there?

Although the Pentium 4 processors, are known to run hot.

You should consider the suggestions, from my previous post.
