There are normally two options, one is optimized or optimal and the other may be called most stable or fail safe, do you have an option other than optimal settings.

 

Using the optimal/optimized settings is not recommended as what it basically does is overclock the hardware which can lead to instability and overheating etc.

Shut the computer down for a while to let it cool down, restart it and then do the following;

 

Download Speedfan and install it.  Once it's installed, run the program and post here the information it shows.  The information I want you to post is the stuff that is circled in the example picture I have attached.

If you are running on a vista machine, please go to where you installed the program and run the program as administrator.

 (this is a screenshot from a vista machine)

 

Download then run HWMonitor and post a screenshot so that we have a comparison to the Speedfan results, details from here

 

To capture and post a screenshot;

 

Click on the ALT key + PRT SCR key..its on the top row..right hand side..now click on start...all programs...accessories...paint....left click in the white area ...press CTRL + V...click on file...click on save...save it to your desktop...name it something related to the screen your capturing... BE SURE TO SAVE IT AS A .JPG ...otherwise it may be to big to upload... then after typing in any response you have... click on browse...desktop...find the screenshot..select it and click on the upload button...then on the lower left...after it says upload successful...click on add reply like you normally would.

 

Screenshot instructions are provided to assist those that may read this topic but are not yet aware of the “how to”.

Got an early start in the morning so going offline now I`m afraid, some info below on how you may be able to use Speedfan to lower the temps, will check back after work tomorrow, someone else may drop into help meanwhile.

 

Speedfan shows one high temp but no voltage readings which is not helpful.

 

HWMonitor shows one high temp TMPIN 1 = CPU and the same bad voltages from the PSU.

 

Try manually increasing your fans using Speedfan, a guide to help here

 

Please restart your computer and check the temperatures/voltages in the BIOS, no screenshot is required just make a note of the temperatures and the +3.3V, +5V and the +12V and post them with your next reply.
 
NB: BIOS voltage readings.
The readings are not conclusive in the BIOS as the computer is under the least amount of load, if they are higher or lower than what they should be though it does suggest a PSU problem.
