Overheating problem?

  1. My machine has started to overheat lately. It has started to since on day the temp in my room got to around 30C & has been cutting out every now again for the past week & a half.
    The average temp in my room is around 24-26C at the moment due to it being summer & I have a lot of electronics but lately it has been cutting out to "prevent any serious damage" quite regular ( usually within 30 mins - 2hours ) but the console or the power supply don't seem to get very hot.

    I have wondered if it is my power supply so I have recenly bought a cheap on from my local game shop for 5 but noticed the wattage is different when I went to test it. My old one was a 203W but this new one is 175W & now I am a bit concerned about using it.

    PS I do try to keep it as well ventilated as possible & have changed it from horizontal to vertical.

  2. Additional Details:
    Yes it is an official power supply. 203W if that is any help.

    BTW It has not overheated for a few weeks now but I would still like to keep this question open so then I can get some advice should it happen again.
