    Turned on desktop today, and it froze after about 10 minutes.
    -restarted it and it just shut off
    - starting hearing a fan not running smoothly...almost like a buzzing
    -opened the case and noticed my water cooler has dripped a bit, doesnt look like it splashed on anything.
    -if I let it sit long enough I can get it to beep and a short session of the Asus logo loading screen and it freezes there.

    Oh and the piece sitting on my CPU is hot to the touch with just a minute or so of power

    So I'm thinking the coolers shot, and my CPU isnt being cooled properly and its shutting down... what do you guys think?

    Yeppirs. Sounds like it is shutting down to keep from melting itself and/or starting a fire.
