Think it's getting hot

Well, I just finished a routine Vatsim Flight from Frankfurt to Munich, and as I began approach into Munich, I started get 6/7 FPS, whereas I usually got 27....I think this is due to overheating, seeing as how the CPU generally performs sufficiently. The sim also started to freeze, but thankfully, Munich APP was very tolerant. I'd like to ask how do I find out whether it really is from overheating, and if so, how do I solve the problem? Thanks!

Down load motherboard monitor Arrow

Once set up it will use the sensors on your mobo to give you temp readings
Whip the side of the case off and check your fans
If you are over heating due to a dodgy fan dont fly untill you replace the fan

Emm..I think something's wrong. The temperature jumps up from 30 to -2, then back up to 12 etc. Is this normal?

Low temps are good,but 21 is low unless you are using liquid cooling

It may be that MM is not compatable with your mobo

Did you pull the side off and check the fans?

Here is another mobo monitor type prog Arrow

Oh, normal temps for fan driven cooling would be between 35/50
any higher and its time to investate
