I believe I'm having some computer sys temp issues. Computer is crashing when under a few hours (or less) of medium/heavy load, then is struggling to re-boot afterwards until it sits for a bit ... Overheat issues ? Ambient is about 25 / 77, I live in an old house - bad power ? No overclocking - heres the build ...
Motherboard - ASrock Conroe 1333-667
e6600 cpu - with AC Freezer 7 Pro (Silver Compound Added)
PCIE - Sapphire x1950GT (512 mb with onboard heatsink/fan)
450w PowerSupply (psu calculator says plenty - eXtreme Outer Vision - eXtreme tools for computer enthusiasts
HD -Hitachi Deskstar350g
Iternal audio/video (video cannot be disabled .. perhaps causing issue with graphics?)
SensorView is showing the following temp averages on idle
CPU - 35c
SYS - 44c(also having odd spikes on occasion. lasting only a second but exceeding 65c ? wtf ?)
AUX - 34c
HD - 39c
Also it should be noted that I have a small fan pointed at the front of the Tower. I've been doing so since the problem. I have a Heatsink fan and a rear case fan - and the exhaust is facing the right way for both. Once it crashes I notice the heatsink(s) on the mobo are very hot. If it IS a fried mobo it's going to be a pain in the keyster to replace from ewiz - so I'm calling all cars here. I'll attempt any variables that anyone may come up with. Perhaps a BIOS problem ... if so - upgrading scares me.
