    after many burn projects completed succesfully all the sudden every time i try to encode ir play a game like counter strike my system would crash. i figured it was some thing i done while installing my tuner card,so i reformat and all is good with the games but i found my cpu fan not functioning correctly and was crashimg my system when i tryed encode avi to dvd etc so i put new fan on and have a house fan blowing on it but cpu still reachs 65c-150f but only when encodeing seems high to me.is this normal? sorry newbie question

    It is too high, especially with a new fan. Did you clean the thermal paste of the CPU? Did you put new thermal paste between the CPU and the new heatsink/fan?
