Morning, I just moved to a coastal community in Texas, now my Temp 1 in speed fan shows 122 F and a fire reading. I want advise as to a good aftermarket CPU heatsink & Fan. Thermaltake has one on newegg for $19.99. I've never used aftermarket coolers, so your opinions are welcome. Alan

Since you just moved the computer was transported also.
Have you opened it & checked the heatsink to make sure it hasn't come partially loose during the move ?

Hey Joe, I investigated as per your advise, and it is seated ok. Today, my temp reading is 52 F?? I think this is a Vista quirk, any feedback on that?? My core temp is 73 F today.

Again I am too hot 104-109F ,I wish I knew what is making me run hot, maybe a power supply problem?? It's a cheap 450w Xion PS,Alan

104-109 Fahrenheit is only 40 Celsius. That is actually cool for a processor to run at. I wouldn't worry until your processor gets up to 70 degrees Celsius which would be about 160 degrees Fahrenheit. Also, are you noticing any stability issues with your system, or as if it's slowing down? If it was overheating, you would probably notice.

Wow, Sterling Thanks! I guess I'm just Paranoid due to the moving. You eased my mind, this is the 1st computer I built and then rebuilt, so I worry alot about it. Thanks again,Alan
