After tens of hours of messing with my pc configurations etc, I think the problem is just the fan is too slow. PC Health showed CPU temp of 50 degrees C and ZERO rpm for CPU fan but then around 1450 rpm popped up after about a minute. I blew out a bunch of dust bunnies too. Before that my monitor would shut off and then the hard drive would flash for a while and then my pc would shut down after playing a CD-Rom game for about 15 minutes. Now its around 45 degreesC and 1850 rpm. What is a good temp and rpm speed? And can I remedy this on my own?? Thanks you so much in advance! KT

Hi all~ Thought Id let you know what was wrong incase you have the same problem.......
The little copper piece that the fan sits on had no more 'goo' (thermal paste) between it and the fan motor. I went ahead and just put a new fan in ($20) because a tube of the paste was $10 and I didnt want to get home and find that the fan was bad too. :thumbsup:

50c would not be dangeously high, but i would not want to go any farther than that, depending on your CPU. but i would shoot for getting it under 40c.

I run at 25 C with 2500RPM. It would help to know what processor this is. Because that's a very high idle temp for an A64, on the other hand, a Prescott could reach those temps easily and be safe.
