Computer overheating constantly
by Varren - 7/30/06 1:53 PM
Lately, my computer has been freezing every time I start playing a game forcing me to shut it down and restart it. One time I felt the top of the case and it was very hot. I am almost certain that overheating is the cause of my problems. I also know that my case has horrible airflow and my video card probably has lots of dust in it too. The temperature in the room is 80-85 degrees.
So what I am asking is, what should I do to solve this problem? Buy a new cooler for my video card? Some more fans...or maybe a new case alltogether? If you need to know any more details about my comp feel free to ask, I really want to know what's the very best for my situation.
AMD Athlon XP 2400+
EVGA 6800GT in AGP
Antec Mini-tower case
Here are some pics of the outside of my case, showing all the fans.
