Oh my God, is this that cold in Sound Africa? that a heat dissapating machine stats freezing? (sorry for that!! )

hmm, P-4 doesnt freeze though when gets heated up, it slows (p-3 does freeze)

tell me one thing, have you put any thermal material between CPU and Heatsink?

When you say "After a while" Is that like 5 min or a couple of hours??

Also, does it beep at all when rebooting?

What brand of memory did you put in the system? Also, what's the mobo's manufacturer and model #?
