My cpu going to 96 temp is a problem
BEcuase i hear beeps coming from my pc and my games slows down
and when it stops it returns to normal any one got any ideas what the problem really is

my first thought is a cpu fan/heatsync full of dust ,have you checked this yet

I presume that is 96c, not 96f. 96f is not a problem. Under high load, my CPU core temps may get to 50c (Intel 3GHz Penryn E5450 processors). I've had more issues with memory temperatures, where they actually would overheat to the extent that the system (Enterprise Linux) would drop one out of use. By re-arranging the SIMM positions, I was able to get the heat down to manageable levels without replacing the stick.

my pc box is a little unclean
