Dust off the sink and fry an egg while yer at it. Mine was hitting 204 degrees using WPE Pro with Doom. I thought it was goning to have a stroke. I got it cleaned, put plastic bottle caps on the rubber feet, maxxed the fan speed, and now run about 150 max.

I'm thinking you might want to build a small radiator, add an additional electric fan, some plastic tubing, a pump and thrown in intercooler.

He probably wouldn't go through the trouble and would find a program better than the one you have now, he'* really good at finding good programs. Programs like: 7-Zip, SuperAntiSpyware, CCleaner, Comodo (Not sure if he still approves of this one though), umm...wow can't name the rest off in my head, but there'* better ones than those that he has found...

I know I say this a lot, but when I get home I'll make a thread of what the best programs to have on your computer are, and help anyone out with the knowledge of wisdom in my sanctimonious helicopterous rotationally spherical head of mine, muhahaha.
