  1. hello guys, just looking for some help/advice please.

    as the title suggests, my pc randomly turns off when watching a film or something.

    i installed speed fan.

    GPU(graphics card i think) is 72C and Temp1(i dont know what this is?) is 74C. is this really bad? both have a little red flame next to the temperatures, which slightly concerning..

    any help would be very appreciated.

    It may be time to open up the computer and clean out all the dust and make sure that all the fans are clean and running normally
