    Computer reboots due to overheating


    recently my computer was giving me problems with programs crashing and the computer would constantly reboot itself and found that the cpu temperature was going up to 70+. i bought a new thermaltake fan, don't knoe what model but its for AMD XP up to 3400. after putting it in the computer was working like new but yesterday my bro put some ram into my computer and it started to have the same problem again. we put my ram back in but it didnt fix the problem. does anyone knoe what the problem might be? just about everything in my computer is new except for the ram. thanks

    Did your brother unplug the fan, maybe? Or dislodge it so there isn't a good heat transfer?

    That goes for the other fans, too... if there's no airflow through the case, a heatsink fan won't do a lot.
