Shut down due to CPU overheating


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

My system is experiencing a strange behaviour. Because of no reason it shuts down due to CPU overheating.

This happened after I've installed Photo Station and the indexing process was triggered.

 

Could it be possible that some CPU temp thresholds are too low and mine is getting warmer but never close to overheating.

 

Advice appreciated.

I had the same problem, but mine was actually overheating because the cpu fan stopped working and there wasn't any running job that required cpu power. Are you sure it's not a temp thing? Do you have active cooling or passive cooling? How did you measure the temp in order to conclude that the cpu is not overheating?
