Things I checked-
-The Graphics card, was an nvidia 7800gt, i took it out and used on-board....still overheats.
-The Power supply, I recently completely replaced it, with a new PSU that has two fans...still overheats.
-I took off the heat-sink and applied thermal compound.....still overheats!
Now I'm not even over-clocking, I have 3 standard case fans, and the new PSU has 2 fans. I should not be having an overheating problem, but for some reason It freezes up when I do simple task like browsing the internet or listening to music (not just when I play games)
I have a
AMD 3800 X2 processor
4 gigs of ram
Gigabyte GA-M51GM-S2G Mobo
Power Star 600 W watt Dual Fan ATX PSU
Windows XP MCE (use to have XP pro, same problem)
I'm not sure if it's a memory problem or not...because 4 gigs is more than usual. But it doesn't seem like that that should be a problem since it is supported by the mobo.
Appreciate any help.
