OK, one night i was lying in bed listening to some Queen, when the computer Just went quiet. The fans stopped and everything, all i could hear was the little humm of the water pump. so i went to investigate.. Something was majorly wrong. I thought my cooling system might have leaked and caused a short somewhere, but upon inspection, all areas of the case / Mobo / Pci's were Dry.

So i tried to start my com again by turning off the switch, then on again. This yielded a just noticable "Twitch" in the fans. So, me with my limited knowledge immediatly suspected the power supply. So i swapped it with another, only to find the same symptoms..

Do i need another MOBO?

I was scared the P4 Chip had fried, but i wasn't at a high level of OC, i was running at 2.6 from 2.4 (Intel P4 2.4C). and with watercooling it was running at a luke warm 45 on max load in a hot room.. so i doubt that was it..

Please Help.. :'(

There are now cpu cooling systems which use a water cooling system-they have a radiator and some have a swamp cooler style cooler-A water leak is possible.

if you replaced the power supply and still nada if assembly was correct dead cpu and or mother board
SO the CPU is a possibility? i thought the P4 would shut down (crash) if temps got too high?
