I've seen a lot of similar posts but none with conclusions to this problem. I've had a MSI K9 platinum mobo and athlon 64x2 6000 brisbane 6G RAM for about 2 years with no problems. Recently gone 64 bit os and added a 2T WD green drive and the cpu has started overheating and cutting out. Idles at about 45-50 but shoots up when I do anything-first happened when I started to backup onto the new drive. Fitted a xigmatik red scorpion fan with no effect. Tried playing around with the cpu voltage with no effect. Have reseated the fan a few times with varying amounts of thermal paste and btw am not overclocking this but need it to perform intense audio tasks Any one any ideas apart from new mobo/cpu/RAM etc?
Back home now tried to post but died before I could submit. Temp was around 60c according to piriform speccy but was fluctuating wildly
PSU is a Raid Max KY520. Graphics Geforce 5200 (I'm not a gamer)
Only other device apart from drives is an audiophile 2496 soundcard. OK so I guess I need a decent psu-any suggestions?
