    I recently just replaced my old M2N-e with an M2N Sli mobo since the old bastard died basically out of the blue. Ever since then and even after not one but three full reformats and XP installations it still seems to crash and reset on me if I try to play any game remotely 3D.

    My specs:

    cpu- AM2 Dual Core 5600
    cooler- Asus Silent Knight
    mobo- M2N SLI
    Ram- 2x 1gb platinum OCZ DDR2
    HD- 160gb SATA Seagate
    GPU- Gigabyte Geforce 8800gts 320mb
    Case- Cooler Master centurion tac-105

    I don't overclock at all and never did and I got the cooler running on max.

    My cpu is about 35-38 degrees celsius.
    My system is about 46 degrees (idle), it usually gets to 50 or a bit more
    My gpu is at about 60-65.

    Before this new motherboard I never had any of these random crashes. Does anyone think these temperatures are tad high (at least the system or GPU ones)?

    I'm thinking it could be the GPU's fault since it essentially sits RIGHT on top of the only mobo heatsink like some fat ugly bastard.
