In the fourth picture you're CPU temp is 69F. Is that under load?

But Sisoft Sandra isn't much of a load. That temp is high. CPU overheating could have something to do with the spontaneous shutdowns.

When it is the high temperature XP gives a brief error message that system was going be shut down because of the high temperature tho.. That sure is a high temperature. Keep watching the temps. I actually am suspecting a service causing the shut downs.

If so we need to find which service.

What kind of system errors do you get ? Refer to your event viewer.

CPU temp is now a whopping 154.4F :4-dontkno and i have removed the casing and have a cool fan blowing on it...

1st thing... there is a few step you need to check 1st.

1st Case : Try check the processor heatsink fan cooler is meant for your processor, check the processor heatsink fan speed in RPM..

2nd Case : Try take out the processor heatsink with fan, check if there is still any therma on it, not too much and not too less.

3rd Case : Are your processor doing a overclock?

:cool:

funny thing is that i've had the PC off for 4 hours and when i turned it back on and checked the temp it was still over 150F and that was within 1 min of restarting.

1st thing... even in 3~5secs, the cpu will rise fast, as the processor is taking a lot of power cycle inside...
2nd thing.. have you try checking your heatsink or your processor regarding the therma paste?

could be a defective power supply giving the wrong voltage to the cpu, but i would make sure your cpu fan works, is clean, then remove it for a fresh application of artic 5...check here

i think its time you remove the processor and refresh the thermal compound.
use artic, follow the instructions
a cut up credit card works well in applying the paste. fingernail width is the desired amount.
3rd thing: its takes many on / off cycles to reach optimum effect.
