Adobe Flash increases CPU temp

Since replacing my old Socket A Sempron 2300+ to an Athlon XP 2400+, whenever I run Adobe Flash on websites like or, my CPU temp increases about 5 degrees (from 45-46 to 50-51C) which crashes my computer and then needs a reboot. When I pause the Flash video, the CPU temp will drop about 3 degrees in 10+ mins, so I can watch about another minute of the video before I have to wait again. Any ideas/suggestions? Anyone else had this?

  1. Flash videos use your CPU to render the videos so of course your temps will go up but 50C will not crash your system your problem is somewhere else maybe bad memory corrupted driver it could be anything but I doubt its your CPU.

    What browser you use?
  2. I use Google Chrome. I have 1GB (2x 512MB) Kingston RAM, nVidia GeForce 5200, ASRock K7S41GX.
