I use dell computers at my restaurants and sometimes if the ac stops working the fan will try to cool down the pc then the fan will stop working the users try to keep the workstation running causing the cpu to overheat... an unproper seated heatsink can cause this too..

also let not forget that if you dont put the thermal compoun as recommended by the manufacturer that can cause an overheat on cpu...
