Windows 7: Computer Overheating

Win 7 Ultimate x64

Power - Temp. - Overclocking - NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT Roundup | [H]ard|OCP

Affordable Multi-GPU: Two GeForce 9600 GT in SLI (page 4) - X-bit labs

change your fan dude.... also buy an additional fan and fit it inside the CPU... cos AMD needs lots of cooling evn at normal temperatures...

make sure that your ventilation is perfect at your PC room...
