My computer doesn't shut down (properly, as it should)

Is that anything of concern?

When you hear the fan as you say can you place if it is from the PSU or the video card?
actually, it seems the fan is the one on the motherboard.

From post #11
GPU 64C equals 147F
HDD 50C equals 122F
CPU core 64C equals 147F (This is the one that bothers me)
Is the fan on the CPU turning or does it seem sluggish?
Turn the system off and check it for dirt or anything that may be stopping it or slowing it down.
The highlighted is verifying the fan may be part of the issue

* video output
* 20+4 powercable
* 4/8 pin 12v wire both coming from the powersupply,
* Cpu fan wire
* power and reset button to the case
Now you should have NOTHING connected to the motherboard except what was listed above.
The goal here is just to test the mobo:
Does the system now post to the monitor?

Also I would recommend looking at replacing the PSu.
It never hurts to cover all the bases .

Usually about 30.00 and up depending on the brand and wattage.
I would suggest a Corsair 550 watt if they have one.
Very dependable and a steady 12 volt rail.
