Can anyone please tell me what causes the computer to overheat.  My son has just bought a computer which has a temperature guage on the front of it - when he first started it, it started to beep at him and the temperature was 67 degrees.  surely this isn't too hot or is it?Huh? Huh?
He has now taken the side panel off and it is fine, but dad says it is dangerous to leave this panel off.  Please help me before world war 3 breaks out in my house.
thanks. Roll Eyes

There may be a warning set in the BIOS to beep when the temp gets to a certain degrees.
Does he have any warranrty on the computer? With the side panel off and the system booted can you see all the fans spinning?

Many people tend to underestimate the maximum allowed CPU temperatures. Please refer to the "maximum CPU temperatures"  article to find out if you CPU is acutally overheating, or if it's still within its allowed temperature range.

Video cards, PSU and CPU are known culprits when it comes to overheating. I will need more information from you in reguards to what you have tried already.
