      Clean it?

      There are a varity of methods to do this... slot/case fans mainly though. Also check your other fan are properly running.

          What you might need are bay fans like these:
          http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=805&Nav=|c:494|&Sort=3&Recs =10

          Basically, need the airflow increased.

            What brand and model case is that thing built into? And what are you getting that temp reading from, the CPU die or some thermister in the MB? Need details, preferably the more the better.

              those bay fans are a lot cheaper than the liquid pc coolers i researching.

                its just a regular home built case.

                i dl a program to check temps. it gives several temp readings, however i go by the main temp reading showing on the task bar. When running a game the temp jumps 4-6 C higher than idle.

                    Some piece of equipment somewhere in my house is making a non-specific noise...can you tell me what it is? .....

                    Never mind.

                    DA, download and run this (I think you have a C2D if I remember right, if you have a quad core this wont be accurate as quad uses a different Tjunction temp) If you have a quad core let me know and I'll link you something better.

                    Then download and run this. Let that run for a few minutes and tell us the temps you are seeing in the first program.

                    This will see how good or bad you cooling is.

                              AMD? Wow. Why not a Core 2 Duo when you were getting those SLI 8800 GTX's?
