I am running an Intel Celeron processor. and for the last couple of days my computer has been shutting down and restarting on its on every time i try to play a game like plants vs. zombies. I downloaded this diagnostic tool from cnet download called sisoftware Sandra. and these are the warning i have recieved:
warning 2541: FSB exceeds chipset rated speed. reduce speed.
warning 2519: one of the system fans has faied or is spinning too slowly.
warning 236: Vcore high than rated maximum. check vcore settings.

the temperatures according to this tool are:
board temp: 42 degrees celcius
cpu 1: 50.00 degrees celcius
cpu 2: 36.00 degrees celcius

I am running an Asus P5g41-M LX 2 motherboard with the Intel Celeron processor.
I have 2gb of RAM.

I have tried going into the bios of the system and saw that the CPU had been disabled, so i enabled it again and put the fan up for performance. there are three options i believe. performance, Optimal, and the other i cannot remember.
i should mention that i built this computer, buying all the things needed and adding them to an empty chassis. i followed specifications of the motherboard and from what i am aware the intel is compatible with the motherboard.
So please someone help me with this. i am frustrated that i can fix it myself.

Your CPU is not overheating. What you should be concerned about are the other warnings. Did you overlock the CPU? If not, why the warning about the voltage & FSB? The quickest way to destroy a CPU is to over-overvolt. Personally, I don't trust SANDRA & suspect those warnings are nothing but BS. Since you have an ASUS board, why aren't you using ASUS PC Probe II ?
