Re: Socket processor Fan -p2
As I see your system is a bit old so the fan may be broken. try to replace it with a new one. Those fans are very cheap today. Do not use your computer without the processor fan. I am sure your problem will be solved!

Maybe you have not put the correct fan on and it has shut down to protect itself. Processors overhead catastrophically in a matter of seconds. Also did you connect the fan to a power supply on the motherboard.
Sadly you wont find any 1066Mhz FSB processors for the Socket 478. The best you can find is the 3.4Ghz with 800Mhz FSB. It might be cheaper and also better value for you to get a Socket 775 based motherboard and Core2 Duo processor. The value range E2160/2180 processors or the E4300/4400 processors have been tested to be even faster than the Socket 775 Pentium Dual 3.4Ghz and they also use less power.
