My comp is rebooting as soon as I launch wow or SC2. Was working fine a few weeks ago before I reinstalled win7.

I have updated drivers, all are latest. I ran a burn in test and it ran fine. I'm out of ideas. No virus (reason for reinstall)

Here are specs.

ASUS Radeon 4890
6G ram
i7 2.8
850W PS

have you overclocked your system at all? what are your temps like?

I have not done any OC.

CPU: 45 from evga e-leet
GPU: 58 from CCC. When gaming it is around 65.

Comp is well ventilated and relatively dust free. I have a large fan on the side blowing in. Large fan on top blowing out. Two fans on front sucking in.

Windows is updated. My first thought was power supply...but I know it's plenty for what I have and the comp is just over 1 year old.

wish there was a pulling-my-hair-out emoticon.
