Hi Folks,

Glad to be a part of this Forum. I encountered a weiered problem yesterday, kindly go through my Machine Specs below.


I made this mid level gaming rig and until yesterday my machine never crashed on me. Suddenly yester when i connected printer and the monitor went blank (although i can still see the CPU and other components running) the system just becamse non responsive. Even the power button the case was not responding and i have to shut down the PSU to get it started again.

With my limited knowledge and expertise i believe it might've been because of over heating as i am in the process of changing the CPU cooler and currently i have the SILVERSTONE NT07-AM2 80mm CPU Cooler (is it because this cooler's TDP is 65 and my CPU is 80 TDP?)

Till now it is running fine but after a month this happened. I checked the event log and there were many eror's which i could not interpretate properly except the one which had a critical and said event ID 41.

Please people help me out....

Why are you using a cooler rated at 65W for an overclocked CPU that is rated at 85W at stock speed?
Surely it would make more sense to use the cooler that came with the CPU.

First of all Thanks You Guys - Truly Appreciate Your Expert opinions. Wanted to let you know couple of facts as per below though & also that sincelast night i am monitoring the temperature and found that the Case Temp at Idle is 38-40 But the CPU Temp is between 57-60 at Idle with an open side window.

I had a Arctic Freezer Pro 7 CPU cooler which i removed because it was causing space issue over the RAM slot (i've put OCZ Ram Cooler)
So when i bought the SILVERSTONE NT07-AM2 80mm CPU Cooler (as it fits without a problem) i knew it would cause temp issue's and hence removed the Overcloking immediately.

I guess i am regretting the decision now of removing arctic cooler for just making space in my Machine (but i guess i'll go with the Corsair H50-1 - That would help...i Guess...what say?)
I also suspect since you guys bought the PSU issue, hence Below is complete list of peripherals attached, kindly advise if its too much for 500 W PSU:-

2x320 GB WD HDD
1 MOBO
1x1TB WD HDD
1 ATI 5850
1 OCZ Ram Cooler
2 DVD RW
2 CCFL tubes(i've side window panel kinda looks cool witht he lights)
3 120 mm case fans

Kindly advise if this is too much for a CM 500 W PSU.
So i am guessing there are only two possibility of this issue:
>Overheating
>PSU

Thanks again in advance - Hope to sort this out soon
