I don't have a solution for you but you need some better cooling my friend.
I'm running a 3.2GHz Intel chip pre-Prescott (the hottest one you can
get at that clock speed), and I had to add fans, and buy a new side to
my case to get it to play nicely. (mind you it's running multiple high
RPM hard drives in RAID as well so can be forgiven a little for getting
warm in the box).
Running a full DVD render of a home DV movie maxes out the CPU for a
good 11 hours or so, but it never even gets to the motherboard monitor
If yours is heating to the point of shutting the box down, it is either
built very poorly, or you have some other serious thermal issues in that
It is not a good thing. I'd get that sorted even before you try to fix VNC.
