I can sniff out heat with the old cover off and point a fan at it test.
But that 80GB hard disk is now popping up all over as a failure point. IF WE ARE VERY LUCKY we see it fail a hard disk test.
Hi, I'd like to ask what could be the problem with my pc suddenly shutting down
My PC spec at the moment is:
AMD Athlon x2 4400 @2,2Ghz
Corsair x2 @2gb (dual channeled)
nVidia GeForce 8600GT (non-overclocked)
Maxtor 80Gb Hdd
3 Case Fans (1 normal, 1 thermaltake typhoon, 1 small one)
Standard AM2 Processor heatsink
latest cpu temp readings,
GPU - 49c
HDD - 45c
Core1 - 46c
Core2 - 50c
environment (manual reading) - 31c to 34c
on heavy load: (using gears of war)
GPU - 72c
HDD - 69c
Core1 - 89c
Core2 - 81c
so with all that data, I'm wondering could it probably be the heat? or a faulty PSU? or maybe some software issues.
If its heat i would like to know the normal temperature for it on idle and under heavy load
If its because of the PSU i would like to know what PSU and how many watts should i take
If its because of software issues i would like to know what might be the cause
sorry for the barrage of questions, if any of you need more info to solve this feel free to ask. thank you.
