Howdy,

I'm new to bitcoin (today) and I'd like to be able to run with all 4 cores of my processor generating coins. I was wondering what is the best way to keep the PC from overheating? With 4 Cores going it is up to 82 Degrees C. Any ideas/thoughts?

Thanks,
Dd

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin-Qt, which will follow the rules of the network no matter what miners do. Even if every miner decided to create 1000 bitcoins per block, full nodes would stick to the rules and reject those blocks.

Without a GPU, particularly an ATI GPU, generating coins is pointless.  You'll waste electricity for 1-2 months before generating a single block, most likely.

I do have an ATI Card how do I get it so that it will use my GPU?

Yea I think I need to do a good bit of better cooling. I've dropped it to 1 core, I was getting 5K+hps.

first you should check, if your gfx-card is OpenCL capable (this tool will show you),
if it does, goto this thread, download the getwork-patched client and the miner and your ready to go.
