Intel Quad Core Q9400 Too HOT!
I'm new to these forums, but thanks in advance for any advice.
So, i've had my computer for roughly 2 years now, and haven't had too many problems with it. But one thing that has come up recently is my computer will randomly turn off, and stay off. I can't power it back on without taking the powerplug out, waiting 10 minutes, putting it back in, and starting a few moments after that. And even then, when i try to use my computer, it will run ok, but freeze up a lot, and slow down. Then anywhere between 10 minutes and 3 days after, my computer will turn off again, and i'll have to redo the whole thing. Sometimes i have to do it multiple times for it to stay on for a decent amount of time.
I've noticed now that my CPU is running at roughly 60-75C on a medium load.
Is this too hot? I've taken the Heat Sink out, cleaned it and all that. But still nothing.
Is there anything i can do to try and cool it down?
