i agree with lance.
seems more software related.
you guys, i'm relatively sure that 3dmark06 generates as much heat as total war...so it should shut down when he runs it, too.
i dont think it's a heating problem...but you should be able to monitor your temps while playing and see.
i don't know about your cpu, but mine won't shut down till it gets to about 90ish celcius. if it was getting that hot you would be having problems at other times, i reckon.
