Re: Need clarification that my motherboard is dying.
I was running Prime95 with the stock Intel cooler, probably stupid of me so when I get around to swapping to the NH-D14 I'll give Prime 95 another go.
Sort of pleased it's still a working machine but will always be cautious of it probably breaking again at some point.
On a side note I was having difficulty getting Windows to install onto the 256 SSD (error code 0x8007045D), turned out to be the data cable which worked with a HDD but not the SSD. Used another data cable and installed fine ... weird.
Thanks for your help with all this.
