Why does my PC shut down after 10 to 30 minutes and the power light turns amber? I changed out the prosser fan and it still does it. :thumbsup: I have to wait quite awhile before I can turn it back on.

Sounds like something overheating and shutting down to protect against damage. The processor fan might not be the culprit - you may have a failing power supply or another component overheating. Check the fan on your power supply. And keep in mind that if the power supply does fail completely, it can take out a lot of other hardware with it.

The power fan was replaced about 8 months ago along with the prosser cooling block. Is there a chance that the prosser is going out?

Anything is possible. If the processor was overheated, it could have slowly failed. You can try using this software to see what your system temps are.
