    Windows Xp used to reboot my computer when the cpu hit 60C. This feature is disabled in the bios but windows still does it. I have replaced the old s**t Heatsink and fan with the Volcano 7+. Now windows reboots between 40C and 50C. My old heatsink had a 3 pin connector but the new 1 has a 4 pin connector cause it needs more power. I was wondering if my Power Supply wasn't good enough.
    It was in a different thread...but yeah, it doesn't make sense does it ?

    i'm thinking you may have been right the whole time...it could be the crap PSU...look into getting a new one. That will most likely fix the problem, and if it doesn't, then it's a software problem that is making the Computer Reboot when it reaches a certain temp...

    Good Luck :thumb:

    for all of those out there who havn't done this, plz mod a fan or 2 in the side of your case! this is a huge help to cooling as u can have it blowing directly onto the cpu or video card giving it an unlimited supply of fresh air:afro:

    btw can i stress to ppl not to get an enermax psu unless u have a server case because the power cords are ridiculously long and you end up having tangles of wire everywhere unless you do some serious tidying:afro:
