Windows 7: Overheating?

19 Jan 2011   #11

Windows 7 Professional x64

I'm upgrading to a heat sync video card and that for sure will help.
I also did clean my pc inside and that foo was dusty, like SUPER dusty!
I been playing CoD MW 4, FarCry2 and no shut down, so I pretty much think it's solved. :)
Not sure yet, going to play assassin's creed II and see what happens, if it shuts down then, not sure what to do, besides upgrading my video card.
