I finally built my new system:
AMD X2 4400+
ASUS A8N32 Deluxe
2GB PC3200 Dual Channel ram
MSI 7900 GTX
250GB HDD WD SATA
Gigabyte 3D Aurora Case (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811233001
Now I have a FSP Group 500 Watt PSU (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817104934
The PSU is perfectly fine. However, I noticed my CPU fan, case fans (total of four I think) spin rather slow (approx 900 rpms)
And my CPU (Asus X-Mars, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835193002
runs at only 2,057 RPMS (which is OK I guess).
My motherboard status:
cpu temp: 105F
I was playing a game (King Kong with my nephew) and I kept getting messages popping up saying my video card was over heating. I think the temp went up to about 212F. I touched the card and it actually was so hot it burned my hand (the sensor was right).
Why would it be doing this? Could my PSU not be giving my fans enough power to run full speed (resulting in overheating)?
The system actually makes no noise. My laptop is actually LOUDER.
