Default Re: Pc abnormally hot

That's my problem is I have the hydro corsair water cooler on mine. So I was running starcraft 2 my video card was 60~ degrees. After about an hour I check my cpu temp and it's at 76 degrees. I shut off my pc take everything apart trying to put in the original ram and low and behold, my cpu fan wasn't plugged in. I am so thankful that I found it this early now it is 34 degrees while typing this with sc 2 up in the background. /facepalm

That can do it, Script.

@Roark- I believe I said first that the extra RAM may be hurting it. But, he solved it, so who cares.
