    I built a pc about 6 or 7 months ago. It worked just fine but after a few months it would run hot and shut off durring game play (call of duty 2). I changed out the power supply thing it was that and i had suffcient fans so i couldnt figure out what it was. I noticed my heatsink was awfully hot so i bought a new and better one and that took care of the problem for like a week.
    Now my comp shuts off when im doing something menial like surfing the net or burning cd's. My heatsink is ver hot too the touch. I have BIOS set to manually shut it down at like 85 degrees celcius or something. Do i have a bad chip set or is my heat sink not good enough?

    AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Venice 2.o socket 939-chipset

    Sounds like overheating still! Disable CPU shutdown feature. Monitor all temps and fan speeds in bios. Disable Qfan or whatever decides by itself what speed to run the fans. Now you are running all fans at full speed!

    If still a problem, renew Thermal paster on cpu/heatsink. Check temps in Bios again.

    Good Luck
