I cant believe I'm saying this but i have a PC that runs nice and cool until
i start seti@home on it. I've run seti on lots of other PCs and never seen
this before. The PC in question is an HP m270n (865 chipset, Northwood 2.8
Ghz HT w 1 gig PC2700 ram running XP Media Center Edition. I'm using Seti
Driver and have two CLI (version 3.08, i386-winnt-cmdline) copies running,
one per cpu thread. Temp rises fairly quickly by nearly 10 deg C when i
start SetiDriver. System is clean, no dust, and nearly new.

Anyone else seen this?
Any suggestions?
Why would the system heat up like that?

Note that comp.sys.hp is obsolete since February 2, 1994, i.e. over
ten years! Not many sites carry it. So while cross-posting to it is not
too bad, setting a Followup-To: it is a really bad idea.
