    K, I've been playing Need For Speed Underground 2 nonstop for the past week or so

    My PC is normally fine, I never shut it down, it stays on for months at a time, years probably

    Today, however, it shut itself down. My processor temp. was 64 degrees C, when normally it is around 55

    Is there any software I can use on Windows 2k that is free preferably, and will tell me the temp. of the Processor, and if possible other parts of the PC.

    I may end up having to upgrade my cooling.

    TIA

      What processor do you have? Will make a big difference in determining whether or not its your CPU heat causing the crash.

        A 3.2Ghz P4 HT, but with the decent core not the cheap one

          As i suspected, my processor is miles over the recommended maximum of 80 degrees at 90 for a 3.2 Prescott core

          My average fan RPM is 2732, should that be higher?

          It recommends a max. input air temp. of 40 though, and mine is 29

          It was a retail chip and came with a heatsink, should I invest in a new one?
