It could be overheating - what temps are you getting?

You have an old intel CPU and a 9200SE

Your raidmax is also 420watts, not 430.

You do have to reliase, that your raidmax is crap and your not running a demanding system. Same raidmax PS in my PC causes random reboots a few times a day. Put in a 420watt thermaltake PS, added another 4 80mm fans and another 120mm fan, and I am all good.

found out this morning that maybe it wasnt an overheating problem... a box poped up saysing "windows has recovered from a serious error"...

so im gonna turn off auto restart and see if i get this error again... ill still keep an eye on my cooling... is there any way to keep an eye on my temps?

guys have to remember too... that this is the first time this has ever happened... i usually end up gaming 3 to 4 hours a night with out any problems...

if you game 3 to 4 hours a night and not have these restarts then it is more than likely not a heating problem.
