Default AMD Athlon 64 overheating problem - Mike Myatt

Hi, my name is Mike Myatt and I have a problem with my computer It has an AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+, at 2.2GHz, Socket AM2 wich is just turning off with no warning. I think this is because the CPU is overheating. Can I correct this by changing the heatsink ? Now it looks the heatsink is properly attached.
Thanks in advance!
Mike Myatt

Did you build this yourself? Did you use thermal paste between the heatsink and processor?
