Is there something wrong here

http://valid.canardpc.com/n49zgh Computer freezing on games after few minutes or hours not ram or hdd or psu and I believe it is the CPU but I was wondering if there was some way to fix it without buying a new one, anyways, does anything even look broken on the cpu-z validation

More about wrong
  1. Does it lock up if running at stock speeds?

    What are your typical idle and loaded operating temperatures for the CPU and GPU?

    idle 45 c on cpu and 33 c on gpu, under load like 60-65 C on cpu and 55 C on gpu
  3. Temps are good.

    What about the OCing question? Does the system work properly at stock speeds?

    No i've put it to 3500 mhz multiple times and same thing occurs :(
  5. These are signs of a typical heat and/or power issue. Honestly I suspect your PSU more than anything else at this point. What model is your EVGA PSU?

    Well I don't think its my PSU guess I should of said this sorry um this is my 2nd PSU the first one came with the computer and it still froze completely and than i bought this evga one and same exact error
  7. What heatsink are you using? The stock one that came with the CPU or an aftermarket model?

    Stock heatsink that comes with the cpu lol
  9. Not that it is the problem, but I never recommend OCing with stock/OEM heatsinks (with the exception of the OEM water closed loop offerings). While some OEM models are more capable than others, they really weren't designed with OCing in mind.

    Have you run a test on your memory to verify it is good to go? If not, try memtest. Get it here:

    I'm not overclocking, :P and I ran one pass of memtest no errors, and I ran the built in windows tester of memory as well, also I tested my HDD because it is western digital they have their own diagnostic tool, either way I am probably going to purchase a new CPU because that was the only test that failed on OCCT. I just don't know what the problem is with the CPU..

    Make sure your motherboard BIOS is on the latest version, first. Good luck!
