XPS 8390, case swap, constant restart

Hello all, 

So I've swapped my XPS 8390 from the Dell case to a V200 TG and added a H115i Plat to cool the CPU. After about a minute the system will just restart with no warning. Temps are below 100F and I just have it sitting there idle. Again other than the CPU cooler and case, I'm using all the same components. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Maybe the cooler isn't working... what are the CPU temps C when it reboots?



cpu temp each time is around 28C give or take a degree or two.

How did you wire up the front I/O panel? Post some photos if you don't mind sharing. This sounds like another interesting project.


So for the front IO panel I pulled the power button cable from the old case. I was getting a different set of errors with that from the Dell support program on start up. When i wasn't using it though this is how i had it set up.


 I know its a very ugly pic sorry, but this is how i set it up. Again though i pulled the power cable from the old case and i'm using that until i get this restart issue handled.



 Its a little messy at the moment so bear with me please.
