J_RaD, Does it just make beeps or shuts down at a temperature it cant support the temperature and its one step to get burned?
It will shut itself down, or just freeze 100%. Chips are smart these days though they won't burn themselves into the ground like the used it, it might start shaving off clock cycles to get it under control though.
I find it stupid with the warranty #*$!. They should give it if you open it also.
How could you clean it if you arent allowed to open it without losing it?
well....... I don't like normal people opening my builds and screwing around, normally results in a phone call *agh*
I can open up stuff without voiding the warranty :-D
either way to fix this problem you are going to have to poke your hands into, so just do it.
I followed your link, a 65 watt chip should NOT be running this hot. maybe a full load but idle, It shouldn't be getting past 100F
my AMD 3.4 is sitting here right now at 89F
but if you are sitting at 130F doing nothing, i'd say we need to get in there and figure out whats up, maybe even pull the heat sink clean the old compound off and reapply some new good stuff.
