Yeah, either overheating, or the PSU is failing.

Could we get some specs, or screenshots?

Also, what kind of PSU do you have?

youve got to be using some serious cooling for that speed with low voltage...those chips are "average" overclockers. You might have just got lucky with the chip..
Something still a little weird..

power supply is one that came with the case, very cheap one the brand is L&C from L&C technology inc. 420 Watt. I hope it is anything else but the video card, it took me a LOOONG time before I selected a GPU to buy.....

Update feb 28 2006 01:49 eastern
I boosted up the video card fan to 100% and underclocked GPU and now it is at 46 celcius but it still causes the problem. the only difference is now it takes a bit longer to happen. instead of lets say 5 minutes it's about 10 minutes.

I mounted the video card in the top PCI-e slot, does it matter which? i could try to mount it at the lower one see what happens....?

46 C is pretty cool for a GPU... It's probably the PSU failing on you. You need a good, steady power supply to keep all your components with the juice they need to run properly. Overclocking makes the component run faster, and thus use more power (when you increase voltage to it, of course). I'd reccomend lowering your CPU OC a little bit, and saving up for a good PSU. Some reccomendations:

1) Sunbeam NUUO 550W ($80.50 at NewEgg)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817709004

2) Fortron (FSP Group) AX500-A 500W ($91 at NewEgg)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817104934

3) OCZ ModStream 520W ($109 at NewEgg, plus $12 MIR)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817104155

Those aren't in any particular order, and all are very high quality, reliable power supplies.
Good luck.

damn, i just spent nearly all my money to upgrade to this rig, I cant affor that much for a PSU!! plus I am pretty sure it is the video card fan and heatsynch i just dont know what to do about it!!!

for PSU, is ThermalTake and Ultra a good brand?
Right now I have about 420 watts on my current L & C power supply. How do i tell if it is sending enough juice to the components? Is there a program out there to measure that?

Ultra's X2-Connect is the only good PSU I've heard of from them, and Thermaltake makes good cases and coolers, but not good PSUs.

NIce, go for broke man, you seem to have fans coming out of everywhere so your temps will be better. I didnt want to leave mine running at 2700+, temps were going over 60 celcius with my stock fan
