For a while now, my computer has been having trouble handling heat, it seems. If I'm playing a system intensive game, or running the CPU at 100%, the computer starts giving off loud beeps, indicating a heat problem.
Speedfan indicates that my CPU runs at a temperature of around 50 C at 100% if I'm looking at the right reading, however Core Temp readings show the temp at over 70 C. I set the BIOS to warn for heat at 70 C, demonstrated by the loud beeps, so I'm inclined to believe the Core Temp readings.
Here are my specs:
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000
GPU: Nvidia 7950 GT
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-M59SLI-S5
RAM: 4 GB
In an attempt to lower CPU heat, I bought a new fan/heatsink:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835118004

What could be the problem here, and what should I do about it? Anything would be helpful. Thanks.
