this is a new computer that i bought and assembled last month, and for that past month, there were at least 4 times when it thermal shutted down.
i need help from someone that can figure out what's wrong with it. my specs are:
E6300 C2D running at stock clock stock cooling
1G DDRII-667 single channel
the power supply comes with the case so i'm not exactly sure.
my problem here in a way is different from what i have read in other posts where people's cpu temperature is ALWAYS high. under normal situations, the cpu idle@26 and load around 42-44, and the reading is about the same from SpeedFan, CoreTemp, and EasyTone5.
back to the details of the shut-downs:
everytime, it happens when the system is idle, or at least semi idle, where there is only msn or BT running. the computer shuts down, probably because of overheating. i try to restart but i cant, so i wait like 30sec. then turn on the computer and go in to PC health in bios, and i see CPU temperature@ 85+ and it scares me 8O i know this is not normal but i just cant figure out a reason, so can someone help me plz? i would be more than glad to provide anymore details of my system or what happens.
