    CPU rebooting due to Mexican heat.


    Hello, lately I've been having problems with my CPU, each time that I play a game or some 3D program (XSI) my PC will reboot.

    I'm currently living in Mexico for the time, I have a P4 2.4 , 512 RAM and... a G-Force 4 64 MB (Yep, I need to change it...)

    So, I figured out that my PC was to hot, seeing that Mexico is a hot country and I don't have AC. I opened the panel, to uncover that it was really to hot, so hot, that I burned myself, specially on my Vid card. Now, it may seem stupid, but I forgot to install some fans, I only have a fan for the power supply....

    I was thinking first to clean the Cpu out of dust with CO2, only problem, seeing that I live near the cost, its full of sea stuff that makes everything rust, any idea how to remove that?

    Next, I want to install 2 fans, one that blows air, and one that removes hot air, any other things I should know, or good Fans ?


    Thank-you for your time.
