My pc currently runs at 52c, and i was having a lot of problems with unstable, crashing etc.

so iv decided on buying a new cpu fan, it is a THERMALTAKE VOLCANO 7 from here click here, i have a p4 1.6 ghz, but im not too sure on my m/b.

could anyone provide some info if this seems a good one or not? cause iv got no idea on speeds of fans and everything concerning them!

i was aiming for a quiet fan, but worthy enough to keep it at a suitable temp!

thanks for any help

You could try buying a new PSU. What is your current PSU? You might need to buy a higher powered one. It's quite a common cause of crashing PCs.

Remove software that you do not use, until you get to a reasonable level. Use the Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel
