I'm hoping for a cheap answer but dread the worse already. Foxconn P35A Quad Core Q6600 Antec 650Watt PSU Having newly built my first PC all was going well, loading on some software. Software stops loading so i escape and shutdown the system (Vista). No reboot happens just a quick start and stop of the fans, so i removed all components except for the PSU, Mobo and CPU. The PSU fan only comes on after i remove the CPU from the MOBO. I have not attempted to overclock any component and the CPU fan looked firm and was running. I don't have any spare CPU's to try or Mobos. Kind of hoping one of you clever people can tell me its something other than the CPU being fried. My other concern is if i get another CPU how do i make sure it doesn't happen again. Any help much appreciated.
