PPPPPPSSSSSSSSHHHHHHH!!!!!

We got the problem down. That is my concern. I'm sorry I wasted your time with all this hubbaballoo. On the plus side- we got it.

Should we mark this as solved, or wait til I get the replacement?

Well just wait for a day running at the current setup, then one by one add the peripherals..... then put back the graphics card after a day of normal working without bsod... with the latest right drivers...

If it doesn't BSOD through all this... your good to go..and then you can mark this as solved.

The only missing peripheral missing really is the video card. Everything else was right out the box, so to speak. When I reformatted, all I really lost was some of the software I installed, like my Steam games, or my MS Office (which I kind of don't need, since it was Starter, without Outlook), and my OS Updates. I hadn't even gotten to switch mice yet, since I've had such a busy weekend I couldn't look for my other ones.

Though, I think I like 7zip better than WinRar.

Something to note- I seem to not be able to start SpeedFan every so often. Like, I start it, it gets halfway to loading and crashes the system. I'm not worried, as I've grown to love CoreTemp, but just something else of note.

So far, no crash. However, I haven't done a lot with it either. Between tonight and tomorrow I will put it through some of the things I've done before when it crashed and see how well it handles.

Just throwing this out there, I once did a house call for someone who bought a dell on which they had neglected to ever plug in the fan for the cpu heatsink on.

Are you sure all the fans are actually spinning when the machine is on?

And heat like that... all the time, is a hardware issue.
It should be able to run under full load without reaching those temps.

I've checked the fans, yes. I'll check again when I get home tonight.

And that high heat I mentioned before was just a spike- I am usually running between 20-45c, and maybe 55c when I'm running something heavy.

Did an overnight "stress test" of sorts. I installed Diablo3, and left it running on high settings for a while when I went to bed. Normally, this would have crashed it - but nope!

Sorry for the continuous check-ins, but I figured it's better to over-inform.
