Welcome to AOA Forums, JonnyBag!

There aren't many games that utilize Dual CPU's, so only one of the processor's is probably carrying all of the load. It sounds like a temperature problem. If this never happened with only one processor, does the new CPU use the same heatsink and fan that the older one has?

And there's NO NEED TO SHOUT, btw.
