Default system is dying....soon!

I think my system is going to overheat really soon.

Its going very loud, as most systems on TF are, and this HMonitor program says that its overheating. How can i stop it from overheating? install more fans? install better fans? Anything easy that i can do?

90mm? What's that?

And yes, im aware that my motherboard is bad, especially if its ASROCK....

should i replace the CPU fan? would that make the mobo's temperature a little better?

i think that program read the sensor incorrectly, use the motherboard manufacturer software or check in bios

is you system dusty if it is dust it out it really drops temps but i would go with a new chipset fan or if your chipset uses passive cooling add a fan on the heatsink

i just dusted the system out very carefully last night, and it should be dust-less. I do have pets, but they are rarely around the computer.

Now i'm kinda scared...my mobo is at 57 degrees celcius.
Can it still run at that temp? Will it ever catch on fire?

Do you have passive chipset cooling like this:



Or active cooling like this:
