Hi there all, i am trying to figure out why my computer force shuts down during game play. it just shuts down and not reboot. So what does that mean? my computer runs fine otherwise, its just during game play. ive tried using pc wizard to see the temps and everything looks fine. except for tmpin2 (north bridge?) that is always 262 degrees Fahrenheit, even when the computer has been shut down for hours i then it on and its at this temp. Could that be the problem or what else could it be. here are my specs if anyone can help.

PSU probably. Thermaltake aren't known for great PSUs. Get a decent 500W+ from Antec, be-Quiet!, Corsair, Enermax, OCZ, PCP&C, Rosewill, Seasonic, or XFX.

Actually, with the amount of HDDs in there you might want more like 550W+.

I was told at best buy that the psu there would do the job. i just bought it yesterday along with the gpu because my old psu didnt have pci-e 6 pin power supply. so i should take that back and get a more powerful one?

Probably. It sounds exactly like an insufficient PSU, plus ThermalTake is a fairly unreputable brand PSU wise.

My guess is that it can't read the sensor. Guess what 262F is in celsius? 127.778. Sounds like it's saying 128C, or I can't read this.

The problem is your Thermaltake PSU, it's an overrated piece of near-junk. The ones you linked are not much (if any) better.
Stick to Seasonic, Antec, XFX, FSP, new Rosewill, or Enermax/LEPA. Avoid Corsair Builder V2, as information at http://forums.hardwaresecrets.com/not-so-tough/8805?thr... indicates they use capacitors from an inferior line known to fail miserably; the original Builder models were built by Seasonic and are good, but the new CWT versions will likely opt for early retirement.

That link isn't to the Capstone, but it is one that reviewed well too. If your video card is a HD6750, HD6770, or HD6790, the 450W Capstone would be sufficient. That PSU would be enough even if you upgraded to a HD7850 at some point.
