Hello,

The system in question is:
Asus A7V8X-X Motherboard
AMD Athlon XP 2500 Barton Core
Generic stock Heatsink and Cooling Fan (came with the processor)
AOpen ATX-250N Power supply


My friend and I were playing some UT2K4 online yesterday and he was using my second computer. All of a sudden things started lagging and we had to shut down the machine. Upon reboot, my motherboard (Asus A7V8X-X) warned that there was an error (I'm afraid I don't recall what it was) and upon checking the CPU temperature in the BIOS, it read 102 Degrees Celsius and rising!
Everything inside the case was too hot to touch. Hard Drives especially, as well as Graphics Card (Nvidia Geforce 4 Ti-4400).

I believe the BIOS reported the Motherboard Heat being around 60 Degrees Celsius.

Every time I turn on the PC the temperature climbs slowly, and I haven't had it on long enough to get up past 50 Degrees.

So much for Asus's CPU Overheating Protection. The setting was put to shut down if the CPU reached 95 Degrees Celsius, but I had to shut it down manually after it screwed up, only to find the temperature above 102C.

I have never overclocked, or even attempted to overclock the machine. The only relatively new changeover is the Power Supply (my biggest suspect right now). I've moved it over to my older box as I've purchased a new system (see signature).

I've used the machine before for many hours in it's new setup playing UT. This is the first time that this has happened.

Any help appreciated!

Cheers,

That is really hot! While I am not a 100% sure what it is (others here might know) I have read that excessive heat can be caused by a weak Power Supply.

And from what you are saying it sounds like the power supply. Alot of people over look the importance of a good brand power supply while building a great system. You should swap out the PS with another one (that is known to work good) and if that is the culprit, pick up a good 450watt+ PS. Don't be cheap!
