It would certainly be great to fix this. Usually I can copy then paste to a notepad instance then copy from that but recently I noticed that sometimes even copying from notepad doesn't transfer to Linux.

This is an interesting hypothesis. I am running synergy as a service though so I presume it is running fully privileged? It can login at the login screen.

If you are on linux use cpuburn, as I suggested in my answer, it has never failed to trigger overheat on my setups :)

You could temporarily open up the case and put a fan on the heatsink and see if that helps.

It sounds like it, 82 is around the default cut-off, did you look in the BIOS for the option? It may also be on by default in the BIOS, if it triggers the BIOS just shuts everything down with no warning.

Install a temp monitor (eg motherboard monitor), and watch the temp. Also sometimes you can disable the temp cutoff in the BIOS.

Yes I've heard bad caps cause erratic behavior, and can cause intermittent shorts. Especially the tantalum ones.

The motherboard may also have a bad capacitor, certainly cheaper motherboards are prone to that, and they degrade over time. The bad PSU may have damaged one or more of the caps and they are now starting to fail. The bad news is it is very hard to find a bad cap.
