Another possibility is that your case doesnt have very good ventilation which would of course generate a good bit of heat inside the case from your hardware.

They finally settled on the power supply, insisting that it was insufficient, even after I pointed out that it ran fine for two years. It would be better if you gave us a few more specifics regarding the make and model of the card. Could it be the PSU? This opens up the possibility to that MSI board.

No point in buying an MB that has an AGP slot but no PCI express jaquesFeb 26, 2009, 7:18 PM Dear all,My experience with Gigabyte GA-MA69VM-S2 and AMD X2 5000+ CPU check the video card manufacturer's website for a BIOS update.

I've never used the stock cooler (the one for my old X1 3800 is still in the box), but I was under the impression they were at least decent.I doubt that I suppose I was a fool to think the stock HSF could be trusted. I cleaned stuff 2 months ago when I first noticed the issue, but I didn't use compressed air or anything like that. Because they didn't.My Vantec case fan is directly behind the heatsink.

In my kid's PC the intel stock heatsink gets clogged up with dusts so even if the fan is spinning, the air doesn't get to the heatsink's fin therefore not doing Odd, I thought. Use ATI Tray Tools and put fan speed to 100 for gaming.

Of course, software routes really slow things down, but they still allow the game to play.As for me not mounting the HSF correctly - no that's not true. stridervmMar 21, 2008, 8:39 PM That's a bit high, I have an A64 X2 5600 running at 3015Mhz (215x14).I get 38 degrees on stock HSF, and at max, mine's at 56 athlon 64 x2 4800+ overheating Athlon 64 X2, 4800+ overheating?
