I just built a new computer and everything seemed fine. all was working well until I installed the last piece, which was just hooking up a new dvd player. even then, the computer booted up and worked fine. it wasn't until i put on the case covering that the computer shut down and had the "cpu over temperature" error. i have good working fans everywhere. the odd thing is that even when i remove the side panel and lay the computer back down, everything works normal. it's only when i stand the computer upright that it has the overheat error. how is it over heating when i stand it up? any help or explanations would be great! thanks.
