I've tried Speccy, which shows the temperature at a given time. But I have no idea how to use that information as I don't know what a normal temperature is.

What I do know is that I installed a tx850 power outlet thingy in my computer a long time ago (it was a disaster, but it worked). One of those big ones with a lot of cables.

It was hard to fit all those wires in my computer. Very hard.

It worked fine until a couple of months ago when my computer started randomly freezing (mostly when using internet browsers. doesn't matter which one, tried them all).
I've been getting rid of some malware on my computer on your website and it worked great! But the freezing problem was not solved.

So I want to see if my system is overheating.
And if it were to overheat, how would I counter this?
Is there a way to disconnect like half of the tx850 cables? I don't use them anyway.

hello that is a nice power supply. This is what i use to monitor my temps http://openhardwaremonitor.org/ this will show you your temperatures and voltages. On some power units you can simply unplug the wires you don't use, just had a look at some pictures of a tx 850 don't think you can on them. hope this helps
