Hi i've had some problems with my computer lately, When i play video games, after a while will the fps drop randomly from 100 to 9 fps and then it goes up again and then later my screen and computer freeze and i have to restart the system...

When i try to restart my computer it sometimes comes 1 long beep then 3 short ones
and nothing happens. (well all the hardware seems to be running but noting comes out to the screen)
So i have to restart my computer a few times before it will start properly again :/ 

I think the problem came after i tried to overclock my gpu (not my cpu) because after 2min did OCCT have to stop the GPU stress test it said that my core #0 had reached 127 degrees celsius O.O

And every time now that i start up my OCCT now it stands that there is 127 degrees constantly on the core #0 but when i open up HWmonitor it only reads 55 degrees (on load)

I would be really pleased for anyone who could help me with my problem :D 

Thank you.

Graphic card is no good or could be heating up due to dust clogged in the heatsink and fans.
Try cleaning it first and see if that works. If not then get a new graphic card.

The Graphics card is only like 5 months old there isn't any dust in it and it never runs over 79 degrees.

So you think that I have to buy a new graphics card?
or do you think that there is another problem?

For around 5 months, then it should still be under warranty. Contact the video manufacture and do a RMA.
Also not every component is free of defects. I had to RMA my graphic card too, which wasn't even a few months old.

I just opened up my computer now to check if the GPU was alright and to change it whit one of my old ones to trouble shoot the computer But when i removed the GPU, did i find some kind of liquid in the pci-e bracket and some of the tiny chips above the braket looked quite toasted i must say :/ 
The liquid had a faint smell of oil and had ran through all of the brackets underneath as well :/ 

Do you know what this might be?
