pc heating up with SETI

Archived from groups: comp.sys.hp,comp.sys.hp.hardware,sci.astro.seti (More info?)

Hi,
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?
Thanks
Eric

    Note that comp.sys.hp is obsolete since February 2, 1994, i.e. over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.
