When I first got my new (PD 3.0 gHz) proc it was running at around 59 deg C... now under same load (same processes too) it runs at 78 deg? Need help, before she blows!

Sounds like thermal runaway - poor choice of heatsink/fan/thermal paste for the processor.

I once had a guy complain that his old-style straight-fin Celeron heatsink wouldn't cool the new Prescott 3.4. Makes you wonder ...

HTH, Ray
