100% CPU usage after a while?
I just recently bought my custom computer and built it. Here's my problem. After about 10 minutes to an hour (it varies), my computer will all of a sudden get dreadfully slow, the CPU usage will skyrocket to 100% to 89% and i'll lose my internet connection. It keeps slowing down even more until it finally just turns off. I'll also be able to smell something.
Specs are as follows
4 GB DDR2 RAM
Asus hybrid SLI AMD motherboard
Nvidia 9800GTX+ 512MB DDR3
500 GB HD
Corsair 650W PSU
AMD Athlon 64 5200 2.7GHZ
I have one 120mm fan running and all other fans (psu and cpu) are running perfectly fine
What part is doing this? I live very far away from my closest CompUSA so if I bring a part back to exchange, i want to make sure it's the right one.
