    Okay, thank you for all your help. It's a stock Coolermaster heatsink, so you're probably totally right. I have room also for two fans at the top of my case for two 120mm fans. Would that help at all? My fiancé suggested that having them blowing out of the case might also help with cooling. I think at some point soon we'll check out the heatsink issue, but we have our wedding coming up so that might have to wait. :P

    Again, thank you for all your help, you've been awesome.

    OK and congratulation to both of you and wish you the best on your wedding.
    Your fiance is right, the fan should draw the air out of the case.

Computer restarts every time I unplug cord
Just installed Windows 8 Pro - LOVE it, most everything works great. However, sometimes when I unplug my laptop it restarts, and I don't mean it shuts down and reboots - it jumps to my HP startup menu screen and proceeds to boot from there. All programs closed out and everything; not hibernating....
