LOL do I like have like the amazing machine that couldnt die or something.. everyone keeps telling me it should be fried.. but its has to have been running this hot since I got it.. which was like two months ago. lol.

A new power supply? (how will that help)
EMP? (reminder... I am a noob)

So new fan, new cpu fan, new power supply.. any other suggestions.. I was thinking a new case since this one is junk..

throw in a new motherboard.. oh gee.. why not a brand new computer.. (if only I could afford that.. lol)

yeh u do have a pretty tough computer if its running that hot and hasn't been fried yet. could be possible that the temps are being misread because it really should have been fried. i think the best thing is a new HSF and reapply the HS compound.

Go to WallyWorld and spring for a $4 can of compressed air. Use it to clean out your case, heatsink, fan, everything. That will lower your temps a bit.

A case fan can make a huge difference as well. You can pick them up really cheap at any local computer shop. Even Best Buy carries 'em.
