To start with let me give my system specs.
Windows XP Home
Intel 865 PERL
1 G Corsair DDR 400
Sound Blaster Audigy 2ZS
Western Digital 80 G and a 40 G
Antec 1080 AWG case
The 430 Watt PS is a dual fan, one sucking air in from the bottom and of course the rear one is for exhaust.
There is an 80mm fan on the side panel that sucks air in.
Two fans in the front of the tower suck air in
Two fans in the rear (factory setup) that work as exhaust.
The heatsink and fan for the CPU are stock for the P4.
As I type this, the room is aproximately 72 degrees. The processor is showing aproximately 58 degrees Centigrade. On a load, which can be as simple as a shockwave game cause the temperature to rise to aproximately 75 degrees Centigrade. Higly unacceptable. I've checked voltages, swapped out memory (have had overheating issues in the past due to poor memory) taken the heatsink loose and insured proper seating. I am at a total loss. Any input will be much apreciated.
thank you in advance
