I put together a pentium D system, but i can't seem to do anything because of overheating. I set everything up as usual, adding the right amount of thermal paste, topping it off with masscool heatsink. But when i boot it up, motherboard readings tell me the cpu is at 66C almost immediately, and then proceeds to jump up to 76C, and even up to 80C. When trying to load up the windows installation cd, the pc shuts down, most likely because of overheating. is there something i missed or could do differently?
