Plz help me someone.
My M2N8-VMX motherboard is overheating.It gets up to 50c and then the games start to lagg even if i play them on low graphics.
The only way right now to play more then 10 min is that I use an external electric fan to cool down my MB.
What could couse the overheating?anyone?could it be the cpu when it gets to 60c
Im sure its not the graphics card couse even if I put the fan on the graphics cart to 100% the games still lag..
thx in advance

Is the heatsink securely mounted?
Have you looked for dust and lint build-up in the heatsink?
If you've had the heatsink off of the CPU, did you replace the thermal compound?
