flameable, shamable. It would have to get pretty hot to catch fire. And if it did, the show wouldn't be to bad.

My laptop does the same thing. When it wakes up from sleeping, the bios thinks the cpu is at 86degC, and the fan kicks into super overdrive mode. I just hit function-Z to reset the bios on the laptop. Not sure how to do that on a desktop. Seach google for info on this, that's how I found it but I don't remember the link.

if your motherboard supports it, you have lm_sensors
installed and a few other things.

So if your machine can actually run for a short time at 86 degrees celcius, I would be amazed as something is giving you false info on the actual temp. But don't get me wrong, reboots like your explaining could be caused by overheating most likely.
I installed slackware 8.1 last week using a bare p200. Then the damn thing burnt my finger afterwards. I got the message and heatsinked it but it was going hard for a good two hours.
