Default Sudden Surge of EUE. Caused by Heat?

Can extreme heat cause EUEs? My sister's Athlon X2 @ 2.65Ghz has run into at least 5 to 10 EUEs with the recent heatwave. According to HWMonitor, CPU temps are at 70C under F@H. I'd hate to see what it's at when I stress test using OCCT.

I don't think it's likely that the processor temperature is causing the EUEs, but it could be that some other component in the system (RAM, chipset, etc.) isn't responding well to the heat and is causing the EUEs to occur.

Buy/run an air conditioner, i bet its one of the bridges. Try running a fan pointed towards the pc with the case open, that may help as well

AC is on, it's just that my sister's room and computer is very warm. Top floor + computer + all lights on cus no sunlight enters = heat! That and the computer is always warmer than all the other computers we have for some reason.

Well you can always try undervolting or underclocking - I know I can drop my CPU temp by ~4 degrees by undervolting the CPU. (although I heard some CPUs get less efficient and take up more power at a certain point)
That should at least reduce the heat floating around in the case.

I know it's not ideal but as a last resort there's throttling F@H using that CPU usage option to tell it to use less than 100% CPU.
