  1. Hi, i have a A7V600X motherboard, AMD Athlon 2600+ processor, ATI Radeon 9800 pro AGP. I am using windows XP Pro. I dont really know thespecs of the rest of my computer but I dont think they are the problem. My computer will last about 30 to 45 minutes and then shut down. to get it to work again i have to turn off the power strip for a minute, then turn it back on. Then it will turn on normally. I recorded the temperatures and the computer shuts down when my processor reaches 60 degrees celcius. The motherboard is 40degrees celciius when it dies. I have tried using several different fans but nothing seems to be able to cool it down. I made sure the fans were blowing the rightr direction.The computer is currently running with its side off. :hotouch:

    Is the shutdown software controlled? You could increase this another 5 degrees to get it to run longer. The real answer is a better heatsink + fan.

    I don't think that its software controlled. The only program im aware of that will do that on my computer is the ASUS probe but it's threshhold is set much higher than the temperature the computer actually reaches

    the next option is to go to the BIOS and and increase the threshold as for MB it is BIOS controlled check it out and let us know :grinthumb
