I have five 120mm fans in this case (Theremaltake Shark) and there is no way to add more. I am really uncomfortable having my CPU that hot.

I need to restart my system

I'm new to folding, I need a little help. My system alarm is going off and I need to shut my computer down for a minute but I am in the process of folding. Can I shut down and restart this folding program?
