    There is an option in the system BIOS to shut down the system once it hits a certain temperature..... see if that is enabled :?:

    If it's not due to a BIOS setting, my guess would be power supply, as the componets get warmer/hot they become less efficent, creating yet more heat until the thermal overload kick out.
    what it points to is a need for more cooling in your system, if temps continue to rise, even slowly over a few hours, you need more better cooling. Also, if you continue to let it cycle to overheat you will eventually kill your system.

    Check the temp. of the other hardware and make sure there is enuf air flow around them. e.g. hdd, video.

    Sounds very much like a power problem. What brand/wattage rating is your PSU mr. warez?

    My old PC did that right after my brother switched the power supply from 120v to 230v. The power supply did this for a day or so and then commited suicide.
    Out of my mind. Be back in five minutes.

    it can also depend on the brand of the PSU...eg. an Aopen 250W PSU can sometimes handle more then a crappy 300W generic PSU...and BTW mrwarezuk, it may be rebooting because the thermal paste on the HSF wasn't applied properly, or it might be using frag tape, it's definitely worth getting a new HSF or atleast taking it off and putting it back with artic silver or something :thumb:

    At any rate, getting a new HSF is a lot cheaper than getting a new PSU. If your shiny new Volcano 7+ arrives and the BSODS keep occurring, you can be fairly sure it's your PSU. So go ahead an order an Enermax or Topower; if, however, the problems vanish, then the problem was likely temps and not a low 5v/12v rail. The advantage to getting a new HSF is that once your new PSU arrives you should be able to get a decent overclock happening.

    HEY!!!!!!!

    what do you mean by
    system exause blower and 80mm fan at the rear.
    ?????

    One of those things you install in place of an unused PCI slot?????

    Do you have an 80mm in addition to the 80mm in your PSU????

    I bet the BLOWER is why your HSF can't cool down effectivly.... Everything your front intake is bringing in is being sucked out before is even comes near the HSF.... Hot air rises, and so a little cloud of hot air hovers near your HSF, and no air is moving...

    I used to have one of those blowers and it was powerfull.... It MIGHT have enough power to suck out everything the front is taking in AND limit the effectiveness of your PSU fan any other exhaust fan...

    Test my suggestion and unplug the blower.... I bet it will work...
