I just got my rig up & running - 3.2c, asus p4c800, etc. After about 5 minutes or so of use,it turns itself off. I do not think that it is my CPU temps, as they are about 35 C Idle.

I dont think there is shortcircuting going on. Any ideas?

Could be a host of problems really what kind of ram are you running i have ran into a bad stick of ram doing the same thing. I would check just to make sure if you are using a monitoring program on your temps to make sure that the bios is the same or lower and not actually showing a higher actual temp.

Well my computer decided to work. I think its my RAM, I switched it to 5/4 at 200 FSB & now its working. I don't recall my RAM being this bad. Its a good thing I'm upgrading to 1 Gig soon.
