    CPU overheating?


    Hiya

    My computer is spontaneosuly freezing and sometimes fails to load at all.

    I saw that my CPU core temp was flikering between 40-46 degrees celsius. I wondered if this could be responsible?

    I'm not overclocking, I have another PC using the same CPU and fan and it's running at 35*c.

    the only difference is that the 'hotter' one has a higher wattage PSU, i wondred if this was inducing a higher voltage and causing it to overheat?

    your thoughts please before i invest in some new cooling equipment!

    Thanks
