I'd like to help you but have a few questions; 1) Is it a custom-built PC or a boxed unit. 2) Have you checked to make sure all the fans internally are plugged in and running? A consistent 5-10 minute running time sounds like an overheating issue with something. ram1009 June 27, 2011 11:20:21 PM The same thing happened with the last box I built. It turned out to be the MB software protecting the CPU. When I upgraded the CPU cooler no more shutdowns. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
