Some have too many fans but try the simplest test. No cover.
I just built my own system for the first time ever and I'm having some issues. The computer is working wonderfully except for when I hit the render button in 3DS Max. About 75% of the way thru, it shuts down. It does this every time. I've applied the silver compound on the processor and I've got multiple fans. I can't figure out what the problem could be. I would really appreciate some insight.
I've got an Intel Core 2 Quad Processor, ASUS Motherboard, 2GB Ram, Ultra 550 Watt Power Supply, and EVGA 8600GT 512MB Video Card. Thanks.
