Are you using an aftermarket hsf (heatink fan)?

Define hot...

Just try removing the oc before you go ahead and buy some new hsf or anything.

are the fans pulling fresh air in and blowing hot air out, or do u just got them like superglued to ur case inside blowing air at stuff? can we get a pic or a diagram of their placement and the direction they are blowing?

EDIT: just seen ur oc(well i already saw it, but just realized it)

take ur oc down about .2ghz and see if the temp goes down a lil, and if it gets more stable

ya I would take your overclock down to like 3.6, are you even watching its temps? and you should also be running stability tests on it with any overclock.

Ya tell us how the "10"fans are setup in the case. Also yes the computer is restarting itself because of the overclock, It is unstable and when you put a load on it "bf2" it is failing and shutting down.

s939 X2 3800 Toledo @ 2.6ghz | evga 7900gs | 320gig + 80gig wd | 1gb Ram | Abit KN8 SLI
3.1ghz achieved. :cool:

10 fans is overkill... they must not be arranged correctly.
you want cool air being drawn in from the front, hot air evacuated out the back. if you have a blow hole (fan on the top of the case) it should blow out, hense the name...
if you have a fan on the side of the case, it should blow in as well.
What kind of case do you have??

remember: hot air rises. you want your lower fans drawing air in and the higher fans pushing air out... it creates the most efficient (coolest and fastest) air currents
