My HiQ system runs a Cyrex 166+ processor, 64 Mb ram, Matrox millenium video card, Soundblaster AWE. State of the art three years ago or so, but I'd still like to get some use from it. I loaded Starcraft and play it, but it will only run about 15-20 minutes before the program and/or the system crashes or restarts on its own. The HiQ tech says he sees no obvious problem and that the the system is just old, due to be replaced (though I think he may have a sales-driven agenda).
Is this a problem with the chip, the cooling fan, or have I hit the limit for this processor? It's an AT motherboard, so I can't just pop a faster chip in. Should I forget it, or is there an answer?
