OK, I got a used Athlon 2100(1.73GHZ) and it keeps freezing, I went into the BIOS and the CPU is running at around 80C. Is this OK? I don't think it is. I can easily replace the CPU Heatsink and fan, should I?

OK, thanks mate. I'll change it now.

The limit for my Athton XP 3200+ is 85 degrees C - the Bios is set to shut it down at 70 degrees C (just in case!)
