I have recently bought the following computer. It is quite high spec and I have to have the side of the computer off otherwise the fan goes crazy.
> Windows : Windows XP Home
> Sound : Creative Audigy 2
> Case Colour : Blue
> HDD 1 : 200GB SATA 8MB 7200rpm
> CPU : P4 3.2 GHz 800MHz HT
> Memory : 2x 512MB (1.0GB) Kingston PC3200 DDR
> Graphics : Radeon 9800 XT 256MB
> Power Supply : Hiper 470w dual fan
I am worried that 1. it should not have the side of. 2. summer is coming and it will get even hotter.
how do you suggest i cool it without spending even more money on the machine?
how do i know what needs cooling?
