It's a desktop, windows 7 was just installed on it so its pretty fresh, i think airflow might be the problem. I have a fan installed, goes around 2400 rpm. The cpu temp is around 65 degrees in BIOS :S. The processor is an Intel® Pentium® Processor Extreme Edition 840 (2M Cache, 3.20 GHz, 800 MHz FSB) and the comps around 3 years old.
I just underclocked it in BIOS to 2.52 ghz, found out it was labelled as core speed or something like that. Ran processor benchmark in PC Wizard 2010 which made the computer always restart before, but didn't this time. Don't know if its working for sure but seems too
The temp is currently at 71c.
Just wanna ask if i underclocked it too much, or missed out on other settings ?
EDIT: Ran the benchmark again, and it turned off at 88c. Dammit.
