Okay in august I was watching Netflix and my computer shut off. So I turn it back on and before it could boot back up it shuts off again. So the next day I clean it all out and it works fine for about 2 weeks. Then it shuts off again so I wait about a hour to turn it back on. I download core temp and my CPU was at 60c going up to 72c.
So I shut it off and open it up and clean it again and I works fine. And about 3 days later it shuts off. I turn it back on check core temp and its at 40c its a little hot for it its usually around 30-35. So I get on youtube and it still at 40 so I leave it on all night and its fine. So I get back to gaming and I only goes up to 46 and 3-4 days later it shuts off again.
And its been doing this ever since then so I figure I need a new power supply. And about a week ago its overheating again and I can't even run it now. Even after I cleaned it out my motherboard temp is getting up there now to. I still haven't got a new power supply I was waiting for black Friday to get one.
I'm getting new thermal paste soon to but I'm not sure if the power supply is the reason for it. I didn't build this I traded my friend a laptop and a old Mac for it and he got it from iBUYPOWER about 3years ago I had I for about 2 years now and I put a new graphics card in and ram in about January this year.
I put new thermal paste on and its still overheating. When i turn it on every second the temp goes up. It starts out at 38c and when i try to log on the my account it when up to over 90c and i had to shut it off.
