    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.

    1.4 ghz Thunderbird 266 FSB - Volcano 7+
    512mb 133mhz
    ECS K7VZA Motherboard
    80gb ATA 133 7200rpm
    Geforce2 mx 32mb
    DVD
    CD-RW
    2 Fans - 1 in & 1 out
    System blower

    Please help

    no i don't think it is. I think you either didn't put any thermal paste on, or didn't apply it properly. You do know what thermal paste is don't you ?

    even tho your PSU should be able to handle it can you give us details of it (brand, wattage, etc)?

    it is a 300w "A one" power supply. It is a 1.4ghz athlon running at 266fsb, think it is 3.3V

    yeah...if it's too high, then it'll be overheating, if it's too low, it won't be providing enough power and will also crash....but if you haven't fiddled with the bios it should be on defaut which should be okay...
