I got this problem since months ago, and it does nothing but to get worse. My PC shuts down itself because of overheating. And yes, I cleaned it, oiled every cooler, formatted, and even putted a standard fan near it: <a href="http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e275/LuckyHRE/12652_1254357329769_1554633227_6643.jpg" target="_blank">http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e275/Luc...633227_6643.jpg</a> <a href="http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e275/LuckyHRE/12652_1254357249767_1554633227_6643.jpg" target="_blank">http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e275/Luc...633227_6643.jpg</a> The overheating started out of nowhere. I was playing NFS:MW like everyday, and then, black screen. Cleaning did the trick, but a month later it begun to get heat again. The only solution that worked was that fan: when NFS was running the temp was at 45º, instead of 70º when there was no fan. Now, I formatted the PC for another issue, and I had to install the Realtek drivers in Secure mode. Windows started, and it didn't last for 40 seconds before it shut down... The PC is a DualCore AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+, the Brisbane one, with a GeForce 8600gt. Every cooler is stock, and the PSU is 500w. I'm in normal mode now, with the Firefox and the MSN running, and the temp are: According to Everest: Core 1: 28ºC Core 2: 27ºC According to Hardware Monitor (a generic program to read temps): CPU: 47º Anybody have ideas? The PC is still in the place where the photos show, and the ambient temp here is 32º. The PC, since I bought it, 1 year ago, is turned on nearly 12 hours a day, and a little more now that I'm on vacation.
