    Is this going to be another CPU fan problem. Try checking if everything is in order, CPU fan blocked? PSU (ventilation) unit is working correctly?

    when you say turn off, you meant OFF completely or auto shutdown?

    PSU is my bet but you might want to wait for some other answer/ suggestion

    my apology, perhaps you could wait a while and let some other senior member help you out. I am just a newbies. :)

    Yes but you're helping, and that's all one can ask.

    But I think CPU still. The reason?
    It was replace one month ago. Therefore it's probably either come loose, or the thermal paste wasn't put on properly.

    Check your system temperature in BIOS, to confirm.

    spec = specification

    reason being is sometimes it's hardware conflict, because you over clocked your unit so with your spec ready at least it's a clearer picture of what you are doing with your unit. :) my apology for the terms used.

    Please manually key in your System Specs to your Profile

    The bios setup (or CMOS) can be found by restarting your computer and hitting DEL or F2 (or a number of other possibilities)
    You should be given a prompt for about 3 secs

    Right click on this link, and select Save As: http://www.alexnolan.net/software/SysSpec.exe

    Also if you have a proprietory computer ie Dell; HP or other it would be best to put that in the mobo field. ie Dell Dimension 3000 (as an example)
