CPU overheating solution
It’s been 28.5C in my flat for the last two days (and nights) and my poor PC just couldn’t take the strain. First in started turning itself off while I was using intense applications such as Photoshop and then it was happening every five minutes. The problem was overheating.
Running some tests I worked out that the CPU temperature was 64C everytime it shutdown. It must have been triggering the PC’s safety mechanism. What I really need is a better CPU heatsink and fan. My one just isn’t powerful enough. But I have temporarily solved the problem as you can see.
I’m now running at 49C – and my room feels much cooler.
