Default Re: Cooling Fans. OVERHEATED COMPUTER SHUTS OFF!!

I had the same problem with my pc I bought a pc fan a long time ago and when I first built my computer when I started using it the computer would say cpu is too hot but i ignored it, but after a while my computer would shut off in the middle of something, so I opened my computer up and took the fan out and my fan would move but it would get caught after every rotation so I bought a new heatsink and fan and it fixed the problem.

Fans are powered by molex connectors, the same connectors running from your psu to your hdd, gfx card, and what not. So check to see if the fan you buys comes with a splitter that splits one molex conncetor into two. If not you can buy them off newegg and they're pretty cheap.

Make sure to click the newegg banner at the top if your going to purchase anything.

First, what MB has he got? 2 Did he get any PC health software that came with it eg, I have a JET WAY V266B ,old I know. but with it came a MB disc that had WINBOND HARDWARE DOCTOR, when installed it monitors your PC temps and warns you of any problems, you can also adjust the fans speed to your needs and the program will let you know if you have altered them to much, if you don't have this type of software go to your MB website and see what they use,. Installing extra fans will help,but you need to know why its running so hot, are you OC your RAM and CPU/ GRAPHICS CARD?, if so you should tone it down drastically before you fry the CPU/MOTHERBOARD/RAM & GRAPHICS CARD.

They don't have to be though, most fans are 3 pin and most motherboards come with a number of 3 pin power connections for fans. All you need to do is attach the fan to the case and plug it into an unused 3 pin power connection.
