  1. Maybe your cpu is heating up. Blow out your case - especially filters and coolers.

    What power supply make and model?

    i dont know the make i bought it a maplin and its 880wts
  3. Get a better power supply. Your pc needs 500W. Get eg Seasonic 520. See http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1804779/power-supply-unit-tier-list.html

    What motherboard are you using?

    m5a78l-mlx Motherbord bios are fully updated btw
  5. That's also a poor motherboard.

    Its not surprising that you are having problems.

    Have you blown out the case yet? And can you measure cpu temps?

  9. Best answer
    Remove the cpu cooler. clean off the old thermals paste with isopropyl alcohol on it and the cpu. Put a pea size drop of Artcic Silver 5 on the cpu and put the cooler back on properly. Post temps then.

    If all's well, you cpu temp should be under 40C
