Hey guys, I just had a little problem thought everyone here would be able to help with. Don't post often, but I read the boards a lot and everyone looks pretty knowledgable.
System Specs :
AMD Athlon T-Bird 800 Mhz
Asus A7V KT133A
128 Megs PC133 RAM
ATI Radeon VE AGP
Diamond Monster II Sound Card
Windows 98 SE
20 Gig 7200 RPM Hard Drive.
What happens, is this : Computer fully locks up after about 20 mins of screwing around or about 5 mins after starting a video game. Sounds like an overheating problem I think. I think it lies in the fact that the case has the power supply dwindling DIRECTLY over the CPU / Heatsink / CPUFan. The Power Supply is literally about 1/4 - 1/2 inch from the top of the CPU Fan.
The Case is from Fry's and is about a year old. It was housing a P3 before this but the P3 was a Slot 1 P3 500 so the CPU wasn't directly beneath the Power Supply where as the Athlon is.
Any Ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
