Alright here's the problem that I'm having:
My CPU (Quad core at 2.4 GHz) was doing some Nero Recode encodes three night ago (doing some AVC stuff) which I ran through the night. The next day I find my computer turned off and then try turning it back on, but it wouldn't turn back on.
I thought my PSU had died (very possible since the PSU fan has been very loud as of late). So then I bought a new PSU 500 watts (my old one was 450 watts). After I installed it my computer turned on and everything worked perfectly, except one thing.
The thing was that when I was doing video compressions, it was going a lot slower than it normally would-I used to be at a 3 GHz P4, in recode the FPS would be at 8-10, which was I was getting now on a Quad core processor (I used to get 20 FPS, and 100 FPS on the analysis pass)
Then about half way through the encodes, my computer turned off with no warning at all. I scanned for viruses with my newly update AVG and it found nothing.
Then I turned back my computer back on and I found an error on it with:
CPU over voltage error.
I thought that was weird, I never touched such settings in my BIOS and it's not overlocked either. I was still able to even boot the computer as normal too.
It seems that my computer only shuts down without warning when I'm using 80-100% CPU time (which is needed for heavy compressing).
I check my CPU core voltage in my BIOS and it looked like it needed attention (had a red color text).
I am wondering if it has to do with running 3 SATA HDDs and 2 DVD burners. I was running fine for 4 months with my same setup (just a different power supply).
