Having problems with your AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ Dual Core Processor - Socket 939 (AMDX24200) ?
My amd athlon 4200+ is heating to much like 70 degrees ...... when i play video games ....
That's not unusual, it's about ten to 15 degrees over where you would like it to be, but right at the borderline of overheating. You need to add more cooling, either add a couple of fans, or get a better cpu cooler. Com/tiger, or newegg, has everything you need. The cheapses way is just to add a couple of larcer displacement fans to blow more air into the case, in the fron of the case, and add another in the rear of the case to pull out the hot air, get a flow going. If you can do a case mod, you can put one on top, and another on the side, which is what I have, it can be done for around 20-40 dollars, depending what you purchase. You should have used some arctic silver between the heatsink and fan, to get better heat dissapation.

I have a AMD Athlon (tm) 64 Processor 3300+ 2.40 GHz, 960 MB of RAM running a VIA/S3G Uni Chrome IGP graphics card. I have updated my drivers for my card along with installing Windows service pack 3 to my XP. I play very few games, but when I run Max Payne it lets me get to the third kill in the first part of the game then shuts down and reboots the computer. This also occurs when I play Hitman 2, it lets me get partly thru the first level and then shuts down and reboots the computer
