After running / idling for a while, my buddies machine shuts off. No warning, no increased temps, no load, it just shuts off. Then, now this gets weird, it needs to be unplugged before it will fire up again!!!
There seems to be no set time that it takes to quit either. It could be an hour, or a couple of hours. My idle temps are 36c, no screen savers are running either. This is a system that is a couple of months old. Here are the specs:
300w PS (a generic Macron to be exact)
Various other cards
Thanks for the reply D|sElMiNk!
It has been running this way for about 6-8 weeks without a hitch, with and without a screensaver running so I don't really suspect the KT7. I'll do some more testing along those lines to test it though.
I had a similar problem with my 1GHz on my MSI 6340. Altough the temp was good the PC just stopped for no good reason. It wasn't OC'ed but the chipset got that hot that it would crash. I had put a fan on and I never had it again.
Well that me be one solution for one problem, but I don't have a clue about not booting without unplugging the PSU. Just try your own PSU on his system, If that works the PSU is the problem.....

Overclocking is like a game, try it some more and you'll get better results.....
Well, I replaced the power supply with a spare I had laying around and all seems to be well for the last couple of days! I think I'll send the old one in for warranty replacement if they will give me an RMA. It's only 3 month's old! Junk hardware.....
