Hi guys and gals,

I just built a new Home Theater system for movies and games. I have been playing Farcry 2 and consistenty experience the game shutting down after and hour or more. I think it is somthing overheating and shutting down for safty reasons, but I cant pinpoint what is over heating so that I can fix the problem.

I have CPUID HWmonitor on there keeping track of the high temps while I play in order to find out what the problem is. Here is the output from HWmonitor...

I think that the ITE IT87 is the Motherboard, but I don't know exactly which input is what. Is this an overheating issue? What is over heating? and What is the best way to cool it down?

I have Gigabyte [GA-MA790X-UD4].

This is driving me crazy! In advance, I cant thank you enough for your help!

If CPUID reports temperatures as accurately as it does for the voltages, it isn't very useful. There's no way your system can work with those voltages. If you rely on CPUID, then replace your PSU because the 5V and the 12V rails are bad.
