did your cpu raise to 100% prior to ram upgrade?

what process is taking up most of your cpu resources?
is it system idle ?

Repost it when it is at 100% usage. I.E. when you have one of the games open.

Try the forums over at ePSXe, you will have more luck there then on this general microsoft forum.
Download speccy, this will give you all the information about your computer including temperature.

Temperatures are not shown as %'s. Do you mean C? For Celsius? 60 and 70 degrees C would be quite hot. Turn off the computer and take the side off and blow out all fans with a can of compressed air. Turn the computer on and make sure all fans are spinning. If you downloaded Speccy, Run Speccy again go up to File/Publish Snapshot. Copy the URL to the clipboard and paste it in your next post.

Did you run Speccy After you cleaned it out or before. As it is still showing 60 C for the motherboard which is on the threshold of hot. Be sure you cleaned the processor fan and heat sync of any dust bunnies. You may need to remove the processor fan and re-apply Thermal Gel between the fan and the processor.

Any Computer Shop you pass by would most likely sell them too.
Do be careful when you are applying it.
