Exclamation systiem overheating!

i built my pc not long after last xmas and now, for what seems like no good reason it just keeps overheating! when im playing a game (world of warcraft) that uses a large amount of the cpu, it come up with a warning that the systiem is overheating... it didnt used to do this with the same game. iv already opened up the systiem and taken as much of the dust out of the processor fan as possible... if any1 knows why this is happening please tell me!

i have a P4 2.8 GHz on an intel board (is the board the problem because i know intel ones are dodgey!) with 512MB ram etc....

You should check the temperature using a piece of software such as Everest Home Edition (www.lavalys.com) or Motherboard Monitor.

You really to give need a numerical value before any decisions can be made as to what action to take.

if its a prescott, which it probably is, u need to get urself a nice CPU heatsink and some AS5. Those things go through the roof in terms of heat

Prescott is a particular core design of the Pentium 4. it runs hot and uses more power than the other cores, although it can get higher frequencies (which is not always better mind you)

AS5 is Arctic Silver 5, a thermal paste which goes between your CPU and the heatsink to give better heat dissipation. it basically fills up all the little gaps from the imperfections of the CPU core and/or heatsink

Default sounds mad or i mis-understood

dude, quick one, when you say (the bar thing that stick up to draw heat away from it yeh?) i'm guessing you mean the blackish metal that looks like a mis-shappen hedgehog?

if so you are missing quite a vital piece, being the fan. which draws the heat futher away and much quicker. In addition to that cpu heat gel (silver looking thing, helps with thermal transfer)

if the above made no sense the disclaimer was in the title
