I am seriously thinking its over heating, It usually happens after I play a game, I just turned Shogun 2 for a test run and my MOBO apparently got up to 70C , all the fans are working fine. I even added a new one, i just ordered another fan from newegg hopefully it works. Also my computer just shut off without even the BSOD it just shut off in the middle of the game.


Also to the other posted I build the computer myself.....

If overclocking or using some "overdrive" software, then cease and desist.

Keep cover off of computer.

Direct a strong desktop/table/floor fan at the computer.

Next go to the mobo manufacturer's website and update your bios, chipset driver, and other drivers.

Where are you getting the motherboard temperature from?

Let's confirm your system temps.

Download and run HWiNFO64

Click the sensors tab and check the temps, confirm the motherboard temp.
Post a screen shot of the sensors tab.

Speccy does a good job on temp reporting as does CoreTemp

okay i took the screenshots! They both say different things for the MOBO though

I would also like to point out that I have had my computer on for the past day and no problems at all, no freeze ups or anything. It seems to happen right after i play a game or when I am playing a game

You can always expect minor variations as temps to fluctuate and even running a program increases temps.

What you want to do is keep an eye on your temps as you play a game. Just take a peak at tihem.

take the cover off of the unit.
Blow out any dust using a can of compressed air.
Direct a floor fan, a desktop fan or a tabletop fan directly at your computer.

Now your temps will drop about 10 degrees C.

tried this, didn't work. I'm still hovering around 45 idle. I am almost positive its a heating or power supply error. My computer is shutting off now, without a BSOD when i play a game. It's really depressing. It have never had this happen to me before.

edit: according to speccy, my MOBO runs hotter than my CPU and Video card, is that normal?
