HELP PLEAse

hey everyone

i have come across a problem when ever im on the computer, the computer randomly shuts down, then when i go to turn it back on it turns on for like 3 secs and turns of and i have to wait about 15mins for it 2 start up again... i quickly thought it was a heat issue with my cpu... as whenever it reaches around 90degrees it restarts so i suspect... i took it to a computer shop and he clearly convinced me that it wasn't over heating issues and that a computer can run fine at " 700 degrees " i didn't believe him and he said when the computer does overheat it doesn't restart it justs " freezes" ...i conducted my own test and placed a normal fan u use in the house and it never restarted...has anyone ever had the same problem and what do you guys think it is...is he just trying to rip me of and he also said that it could be software issues ??? any help is much appreciated and once again thanks over clock 3d ..

90oc is WAY WAY to hot.

Not only does thermal throttling kick in at about 65oc slowing your PC down to a crawl, but many processors arn't designed to operate that hot.

Get a new cooler for your machine or re-seat your existing one before you kill your processor.

Does your case have good ventilation? If it doesn't then a good heatsink will do you no good.

re-seating would be taking off the heatsink, renewing the thermal paste and putting the HS back on nice and tight

You may need a good de-dusting session too.
