P2 system beeps over temperature

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I have a P2 system running WinXp pro that beeps a warning of high
temperature on hot days. Both the power supply and cpu fan are working
and the problem goes away if I remove the computer cover and leave it

I notice a bios setting in the "Chipset Features setup" of 70c/158F or
75c/167F. The current setting is the lower 70/158.

Would it be a good idea to change the bios setting to the higher range
to possibly cure the problem?
