The problem I have is that I just built this new system a few days ago and it has been running solid. This morning, the computer was idling and had a blue screen. The windows report said that it was the ethernet that crashed. I remember reading that my motherboard gets a little warmer than most and realized the south bridge is *directly under* the 4870. Could this problem be my pc over heating?
I got speedfan and it says:
temp 1 = 35 celsius
temp 2 = 45 celsius
temp 3 = 80 celsius
I am going out on a limb and guessing that 80 celsius is pretty high. That is about where my macbook pro gets before rebooting itself as well.
Does anyone have any advice on how to fix this? The case has 4 more mount points for 140mm fans (taking the total to 7). Should I put one everywhere?
