just built my friends new system, components are as follows:
Athlon 64 3200+
Abit KV8-MAX3

After about an hour of him playing UO his computer either freezes or reboots itself. It is not overheating, it hovers between 106 and 115 fahrenheit. any suggestions would be helpful

whats UO? i'm guessing its some game.... but if that happens, maybe the graphics card overheating?? try blowing a huge fan over the gfx card just to see if it'll eventually freeze and reboot
