Not really. dnet doesn't use the FPU, so it probably doesn't use quite
as much power as it could. But for an old-ish computer, running it
specifically for dnetc doesn't seem worthwhile.

You could just check the CPU fan, or replace it with a better one.
There's also the motherboard temperature to look at.

Running with the case open is a good way to keep things cool, actually
(unless the airflow design is very efficient, which it usually isn't).
