    I have a desktop that i built last April. I bought all the pieces off newegg.
    -Windows XP
    -AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition 3.4GHz AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor
    -GIGABYTE GA-770T-USB3 AM3 AMD 770 USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
    -Kingston 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333(Really Cheap So this might be it)
    -CORSAIR Enthusiast Series CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V
    -Nvidia GeForce GTS 450

    So I Built this thing last April and it worked fine for about 3 weeks then it
    started having this problem where it froze and restarted itself. I just put it
    aside for a while until i got on one of these forums and someone told me to clear
    my registry and defrag and do a virus scan. I did all these things with this pack i got.
    It worked. The computer worked for about 5 months until a couple days ago it started doing
    the crash thing where it freezes and makes that clicking noise. It didn't restart itself so
    i just thought it was crashing. It did it again a couple days after that. I just had to keep
    it cooler in the room and it didn't seem to do that but now its doing this first problem where
    i just freezes with no sound and restarts itself. I tried everything i did before plus i tried
    reformatting and still nothing. Can anyone help me out?

    Try this for temps

    Download and install hwmonitor
    and see what the temps etc are. Download the 1.17 setup, english on the righthand side.
    ....take a reading when not running the game or programs CPU(core) and GPU Video card and post them. (Just a screenshot of results is fine)

    Then run the game or any other intensive program for awhile and take another reading post the results
