Got a big problem...

Looks like I won't be playing for a while after all...

After upgrading my computer to 64 bit it turns out that it has caused my CPU's average temperature to go up.... more than I expected...

Now, whenever I load up Arma 2 *not even in game* my CPU's temperature is going up to like 75-80 and, after about 20 minutes of playing, poof! Computer turns off due to the safeties kicking in...

So yeah... I am gonna have to find myself a better cooling system before I can even think about playing again :/

Now just to get some money :/

I had the same problem. I'd recommend re-applying the thermal paste, it might have been incorrectly applied. You'll need to find some 70% isopropyl alcohol to fully clean the current paste off, and I think Arctic Silver make some good thermal paste.

Is it a new computer, or just an upgraded one? If such, have you made sure all fans are dust free?
