Hi All,

I have a home built computer which has been running well for a while. I recently noticed it was overheating and when I went to check the CPU speed in BIOS it told me 229F! I was curious if anyone could tell me how I can figure out if it is just the CPU or something caused by the motherboard, power supply, fan, heat sink ...
Thanks a million everyone.

also u might wanna check up on the spyware, that can also cause your overheating probs by overworking the CPU
