    you might want to get some fans for the case & a bigger heatsink & fan for the cpu to knock the temp down

    Hey all!
    My computer mysteriously restarted twice today while I was backing up DVDs. The first time while I was in DVD Shrink and the second time while I was burning in DVD decrypter. Im wondering if it's a heat problem, and wondered how I can check my system's temp?
    thanks!

    check that your cpu heatsink & fan is clean as that can cause temp to go up quickly as i'm running a p4 2.4 celeron prescott & cpu temp is about 51c
