"Overheat shut down problem temp fix"2.0 starson by thearkit3kt
Pros: Big chassis, quiet, expandable, pretty cool exterior with slick display for audio controls
Cons: Had it for 2 months, it overheats, but i got a temp fix - Take the side panel off!
Summary: I bought this PC 2 months ago for the extra power and expandability. Unfortunately, the thing shuts down after a few minutes. I was pretty surprised of its capbilities when I first got it, games looked great (I have an HP 1920X1080 monitor which helps) and programs and apps ran smoothly. Just 2 weeks ago the thing shuts down after only 20 minutes of use...it progressively got worse, but I opened it up and found that the interior was very hot. But the PC stays on now because the added ventilation by opening the right panel. Im backing up the data and returning it to Best Buy because new computers shouldnt have this problem. Also the front audio push-button panel has stayed open since I bought it. It doesnt close! SO annoying....so I got this Rig just sitting there in the open getting the ventilation. Atleast it works properly. Next time buying from Fry's.
