    Sounds like a heat issue, get speedfan from the downloads section and use it to monitor all your temperatures.

    i been looking at temps since i built the pc last week and they been fine, here they are ne way

    HD0: 40c
    Core: 26c

    When player counter strike right up till the point i get lag:
    HD0: 40c

    in net_graph 3 i noticed my choke has been goin up to 12 at times...usually around 0, but often goin to 5-6.

    im not sure on the whole rates thing or evan how to change them, but could this be a problem too (it cant be causing the lag in half life 2 cus that dont use the internet.)

    my connection is:

    2meg down
    i think about 256k up(i might be wrong)
