I am using a Pentium II chip @ 400MHz on a ASUS P3B-F mobo, running Win98 SE, and I have ASUS Probe installed, which monitors my PC. I noticed that when I am running more than 7 applications, or when I am running Quake III, the probe tells me that my CPU temp is above the threshold of 75 C. I am not overclocking... my cpu has a fan and heatsink installed, and I have an extra fan installed above my CPU.
My questions are... is it a normal thing for the CPU to overheat during multitask? what is the normal temp range for the CPU? and what are some ways i can keep the temp down, other than installing more fans.
