Obviously this is no longer the case, or I wouldn't be writing this. And so I'm asking for help.
Basically every once in a while, especially when playing World of Tanks, I get what I'm calling a Thermal Runaway. The LED over the contact plate goes from Green, through Yellow, Orange, and Red in a matter of about 30 seconds while the fan goes into high gear. But nothing seems to stop the inevitable overheat shutdown.
Even exiting all the programs, so the processor load is 0%, it still goes into shutdown.
Once I was able to get it to sleep before it shut down, and it woke up almost immediately cooler, but typically if it shuts down, it stays hot for 5-10 minutes and won't finish booting before it snaps off again.
But it's not entirely predictable. I can play a dozen battles without getting above 45C (Motherboard readout). The last time I was just looking at a web page. It's not making any weird noises, and it hasn't leaked. so it appears to be working normally until this happens.

But as all programmers know, problems that go away by themselves come back by themselves. So I'm not going to call off the swap.

One lesson learned though, Seagate: Never Again.

If I'm lucky, I'll even be able to keep the up to date.
(NAS units are a bit too expensive at this point in time, however.)
