Well i decided to get a new CPU fan because mine was stock and too loud. So i ordered one that was "quieter"( i don't remember where packaging is to tell you what brand sorry). Well when i installed it and booted my PC, I noticed i started to get random lock ups causing me to hard reset my PC and STOP errors. So i found out what all the stop errors meant and through out a 1 week period ive had a STOP error that pointed to every piece of hardware i have on my PC.
So i was thinking could this be power supply related?
Would changing to my old fan fix anything?
Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition (5.1, Build 2600)
I'd recommend Rivatuner, and crank up the fan speed for the GFX card when playing games. However I would also look into getting a slightly better vid card too. Either a 4670 (Sapphire about $80 on newegg), or a 9600GSO (Zotac $85 on newegg), as either will destroy that 8600, and run much cooler.
