None at all. Only things I changed in the BIOS were the Cool n' Quiet settings and such. Consideirng re-enabling that to see if it cools the case exhaust down any...

What kind of airflow does the case have?

Might be the culprit. Heat can rise
rapidly while playing a game and cause a sudden shutdown. This has happened to me in the past also. If you can use a second monitor you can view your temps while in game. You'll be surprised how quickly temps can climb and also fall.

It seems to be ok. One of the problem I had was the Ultra 120 had to be mounted with the fan pointing up or down. I opted for up, which places it blowing directly at the PSU fan which I'm not sure if that's an intake or exhaust on the PSU.

He runs CoreTemp all the time and checks his temps. With the side off, the max it reaches is around 40. With side on, was around 45-46 max.

Yraen,
I had the same issue with EQ for a while. Try turning off Anti Aliasing and Ansiotropic(sp?) Filtering. Once I did that I didn't have anymore shutdown issues in EQ.

Sounds like your are directing heat from your CPU into your psu. The fan on your psu that's inside your case is an intake.

There's the magic word.

CoreTemp (v.94 and .95, but especially .95) is known to hard crash systems. It's a bug in the program. I'd bet that not using CoreTemp will result in no more hard crashes.

The program author is working on a fix.

Read here for more information.

Hope this helps!

Ok... going to leave EQ up all evening without CoreTemp running to see what it does.

If that doesn't, then I'll try without some of the settings turned on.

Good luck on that last theory Yraen.

If that (hopefully not) isnt the prob though- I have to say that your prob could possibly be caused by some drivers Issues..

Have you tried another (perhaps the previous) Forceware drivers?

(BTW - what is his chipset temp like?)
