Hot hot hot…

Finally got round to sorting out my computer’s overheating problems. For the past couple of rather warm summer months, the processor has been running at about 80°C(!) at idle. This would mean that any prolonged Quake III session (or any other processor intensive activity) would result in the processor overheating and the motherboard monitor shutting the system down. I figured that I’d do everything in one go so I wandered off to PC World and bought a Jeantech 450W PSU which had a 120mm fan, 2 80mm case fans and a Coolermaster Jet 7+ heatsink and fan. Got home, assembled everything, and now my processor runs at 64°C at full pelt! Mission accomplished. Only slight niggle is that all the bits had flashing LEDs and neon strips embedded in them, so now my PC glows in the dark, rude boy style…

Went for a couple of frames of snooker with Robin in the evening. Lost 2-0. I blame it on lack of practice for the past month. 😉 Went to the Lahori Karahi in Hounslow West afterwards for a Tandoori – very good, if slightly warm!
