    I have an 8RDA3+ board, with an 1800XP, which had neen OC'd using 12.5*166.

    I bought a new case, put all of the stuff into it, but found out it had a
    faulty power switch. So, everything went back into the old case.

    Thats when the problems started. i set it up all again, but when the power
    was switched back on, it just switched off after 15 seconds or so. This
    kept happening. I put the settings back to the original 1800XP settings, it
    lasted a bit longer but it still switched off without warning.

    I am using arctic silver ceramique, and know it's not the temperature thats
    causing the switch offs. It has done this with a 350W and 380W PSU.

    This has only started after changing cases temporarily.

    Can anyone help? Thanks

  2. Suspect a bad component seat, or static damage during handling.

    To verify, assemble outside of the case, and start with the mobo not
    touching any conductive surface. If the system is stable, all will be well
    once a very careful reinstall is accomplished, if it reboots, begin swapping
    out components in this order:

    RAM, CPU, MOBO, PSU. (have no pci cards installed unless required to access
    your boot device; unlikely)

    My guess, the cpu is overheating due to the HSF not installed properly.
    Boot and quickly go to cmos and check the temps in PC health section. You
    may see the cpu temp rising rapidly until overheat protection kicks in and
    shuts down the PC.
