Check your temps with HWMonitor and Coretemp and see what they say. If its that hot idle it must be going through the roof under load and probably shutting down. Try re-applying your thermal paste then re check your temps. http://www.arcticsilver.com/methods.html Run Prime95 with HWmon and Coretemp open and see how hot the cpu gets then report back. m 0 l hadismkay January 6, 2011 12:46:20 PM currently i am now using the old casing.. maybe 4 years ago.. i will upload the screenshot of HW monitor to let you see and tell me what is the problem.. m 0 l hadismkay January 6, 2011 12:55:06 PM http://img707.imageshack.us/i/cputemp.jpg/ m 0 l Best solution beanoslim a b ) Power supply January 6, 2011 1:45:38 PM CPU too hot, all I can suggest is what I've already suggested, try it and report back.
