The only problem I have is that the comp "randomly" shuts down when I play games (3d games). At first I had no idea what the problem could be, but after some searching I learned that the cpu temperature should be at around 40 C, and mine oscillates between 70 - 80. All the other components stay at around 30 C.
I've bought thermal paste and reapplied some to the processor, but it still has the same reading. the fan on the heatsink is working fine. What's strange is that as soon as I start the computer the cpu temp is already at 72 C!!
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
