CPU Overheating! & Sound Jack on Case.

Hey again! OK, I can get my CPU to run at it's proper speed (2100+ [1.73GHZ]), but it overheats. I think I need a better fan. Now it's running at 1500+ (1.3GHZ) and it's fine. Now, I can install another fan, but, is the fan supposed to suck the heat away from the CPU or blow cool air onto it? Thanks guys!


-Sound Jack on Case-

OK, on the front of my case I have two USB ports, a microphone port and a sound port. The USB port's are working, but I don't know where to plug the microphone and sound port's into the mobo. Any ideas?


Thanks guys!

You should replace the complete heatsink and fan assembly, in that way you will have the correct cooling capacity and wont have to worry about the airflow.

Mic and sound connectors will depend on whether or not your mobo supports front sound ports, most new mobos do, check your manual or mobo manufacturer's website for connection details.

How are you getting the cpu temp readings? Via the bios or by the asus probe software?

What temperature is it reading?
