hey guys Im using a custom built computer, and basically I noticed the PSU is extremely hot.

Specs are

Q6600 overclcoked to 3.00 ghz
asus p5q motherboard
4gb ram
arctic cooling heatsink
nvidia 9800 gtx+ videocard
and 1 500, and 1 640gb hd

Yeah basically before this I felt the cpu was overheating, so I opened the case and boom temp went down
after that tho, the psu starts to overheat and after a while if i start running anything intense, it crashes after a while.
Its starting to really annoy me

oh yeah I forgot to mention cooler master extreme power duo 650W is my PSU

How do you know the PSU is overheating? Only a very few have temperature sensors.

The first thing you must ALWAYS do when troubleshooting stability problems is go back to normal clock rates. So do that, then if still having problems, we can go from there.

well its just a guess that its the psu cause seriously, i touch the top of the case, I think i can cook an egg on it. Checked cpuz and all that stuff, nothing is even near a high temperature, so yeah. NORMAL CLOCK SPEEDS? blahhhh I gotta get someone else to do it, I worry I'll screw the settings up, I'll bump this thread when that happens. Till then, any other ideas?
