Windows 7: BSOD although most of time PC just freezes (looping sound) or resets

It would seem the people at the shop aren't very knowledgeable. The machine overheats and turns off, as it should, yet they tell you nothing is wrong and take your money. Something is terribly wrong because it should not overheat to the critical point. Did you clean and apply new thermal paste?

Update: after 1 hour of use it turned off and started beeping...last temperature I saw was 96o C.

What should I do now?
Heck mate that is way too close for comfort on that CPU and what cooling do you have in place - have only read last two posts.

I recently had temps like this on my Ivy and it turned out to be the liquid cooler pump failing so hence why we need to know what you have?? ASAP.

Addit The Tcase is 72.7C so the red readout is telling me you have a real problem there

Oops came in a few posts back but still am wondering what the cooler is?

Maybe a pic of the case innards would give a better idea of what we are dealing with too.

The twisted red cable, what is that? All the cables can severely restrict airflow.

Okay thanks, gonna get the 2 new fans installed, what exactly should I say to the guys at the shop about tidying up the cables? Where exactly should they go?

Put them out of the air flow so the inside of the case is mostly open. Also tell them they didn't help your overheat issues.
An example of a well done cabling job, no wires visible.

The red cables are connected to the HDDs, what kind of coolers should I ask for? Never bought any before. I see that in the pic you posted the PSU is on the bottom, does that help with the temperature? Would there be a problem if I turned my case upside down?

You would need a case which accommodates a bottom mounted PSU, turning one upside down won't help. The SATA cables (red ones) can be replaced whit much shorter ones, enough to reach from the motherboard to the drive, any longer is a wastes and can lower drive performance.

Here's some Intel coolers. Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!

There are 100s available so it will depend on what the shop has. It's difficult to make recommendations with someone else doing the work.
