Okay, here's the deal. I have a gaming computer and being the performance nut that I am I overclock it. Now I understand that overclocking can cause problems so i accept those risks and I try to be carefully.
Until recently my computer has run fine, however, about a week ago, maybe a bit more, I started suffering from a rash of lock ups and random restarts. Also, in the last week my computer has blue screened several times. Each of these times I increased the fan speed on the coolers and I reduced the clock speed. I didnt seem to do much good. Now, today, my computer locked up several times and restarted randomly. I tried to fix it by reseting everything to default and turn up the fans even more. Now though my comp often cant even make it to desktop before rebooting. I have checked and rechecked everything but it's all at default.
I have had similar problems before and it has been caused by the Power Supply, however, I wanted to post and check for any second opinions before I went and shelled out for a new supply that I may or may not need.
