    Yeah, the only PCI card other than my video card, is the new network card...BUT, the computer did the same thing with my onboard network card, so it's not the new network card.

    I was thinking about that...About the video card. Maybe I should try to get a PCI-E or borrow one, like you said...Well, thanx, I will try to get one and see about that!! Otherwise, yah, I am pretty sure everything else is hooked up correctly hehe.

    Oh yes, another thing that the computer is doing is the video card is getting very hot and also the RAM is...one stick hotter than the other. I am beginning to think it MIGHT be my motherboard *sigh*...

    are you running dual channel and is both sticks the same because if there not, that could be one problem also heat could be another problem send me the type of ram you got

    I have 2 gigs of Corsair XMS dual channel RAM, so yes, they are dual channel. They are the same, so I have no idea...I am not sure of why the computer is getting so hot...it's very weird. Also, one of the fans in the back of the case, I JUST noticed this today, isn't really blowing my air at ALL out the back. It's a 90mm fan...maybe that is another problem also hehe.

    cheack if your ram is compatible with your mobo and see if you have lateest bios dangerous heat would be 50c for cpu when your not doing anything.

    Wow!!! I actually think I figured out what is wrong with the computer. I was playing EverQuest last night and decided to keep my temperature program up and running in the background, well, it was going from like 31 degrees to 48-49 degrees Celsius in no time at all...And everytime I would actually go look at it, it would fall back a bit in degrees.

    Sooo...I guess it must be the heat that is making my computer freeze and such. I know that one of the fans in the back isn't working like it should...it's not kicking out air at all, I don't think. Does anyone have any suggestions about what kind of case fans or any household mini-fans that I could put in front of the intake of the computer?? I'd like one that blew ICY cool air. I'm going to Circuit City and maybe Best Buy today, so, I'll check back soon to see about the fan situation!! Thanx =)

    have the back fan blow out and the front intake and side intake thats how it should be also if your computer is dusty that could be a probem blow it out also dose your cpu heatsink have a fan and do you have thermal compound on your heat sink

    Actually, my case doesn't have side vents. It has the front intake, the back, then there's a fan on the top. And yes, I have actually replaced the stock heat sink with a Gigabyte cooling fan/heatsink. It came with thermal paste, I think Arctic Cooling...I didn't use the entire tube of paste on it, b/c it was alot...Maybe I should put more on??

    Maybe the computer isn't getting ample enough of air also b/c of the cords that are attatched to the PS b/c there are TONS of them. I finally tied all of them up and they're not all bundled all over anymore...but it's kind of blocking a part of the intake, the cords are...I'm not really sure of how to stop this, unless I get some duct tape and plaster them against the bottom of the case or something, LOL. Oh well, I'll try to see if I can find a fan that blows totally cool air tonight or something...but thank you =)
