Mine overheats and its put together myself. And the computers futureshop has are put together by some idiot in the company reading a manual and it doesnt overheat.
If all of my friends and my bro's friends computers overheat something is wrong, like its fixed to overheat if you put it yourself.
well number one, intel is a sucker when it comes to running at a decient temp. one of my friends had 2 computers with P4 2.4 processors and they were always overheating from day one...to the day he took one apart to see what what going on, why they were running so hot. he had been using em for less then 30 days, and when he tried to seperate the cpu from the heatsink, he got a huge surprise. it seemed like the cpu had baked itself to the heatsink and he couldnt get it apart, and when he did...he had 2 pieces of processors. and...sadly he took the second one apart only to find the same deal. it was then i talked him into buying AMD.
and no im not biased...im still waiting for intel to release a cooler running processor!
