Default Re: Shutting down every 15 minutes

MY old OCZ PSU did this.. It had adjustable rails, so I bought a multimeter, adjusted, tested, adjusted, tested until I found the optimum values. Before, the computer would just randomly shut off....

With your temp monitor app (or in BIOS) try setting an alarm when the temps hit a certain point, and see how long before the computer shuts off. Keep raising it and see if there is a difference - this will tell you if the computer is shutting off due to overheating.
