kobe can opt out and ask for more money, but i doubt he will. and if they win this year, i bet he will opt out and take a considerable paycut to keep this team together

damn my computer keeps over heating lately.

All fans are working too, anyone got any advice?

When it overheats too much, it just freezes on me. This happens at least a couple of times a week.

take out ur fans and clean em out, especially the cpu fan. if that doesnt work, u might need to redo the thermal paste on the heatsink

werd, common problem. the cpu fan might be spinning, but usually dust builds up between the fan and heatsink and restricts a lot of heat from dissipating

I took all of them out about a month ago and cleaned the hell out of them. It was working perfectly for a couple of weeks but then it started over heating again.


What do you mean by redo the thermal paste on the heatsink. I don't know squat about computers.

basically theres a paste that makes contact with the cpu and heatsink to better dissipate heat. when this paste gets old it doesnt transfer heat as well since its basically just metal on metal, so that very well may be ur problem.
