Hey guys, hope I have got the right forum category.
I've been having trouble with my PC which I cant quite seem to figure out which component is at fault.
It's been crashing out on games and Furmark shows only 52° degrees GPU and 42°CPU before black screening, no monitor signal and sound looping.
Memtest shows no faults or errors and I recently cleaned the PC , because of this error. I repasted CPU and GPU, cleaned colonies of dust, oiled the fans, cleaned the dust from PSUand tbh, the machine is running pretty frikin' sweet Only issue is this crash has not been eliminated.
CPU is E8400 Core 2 Duo, GPU is ATI 4870 512 and PSU is 450 Antec, along with case, 2 x 1 GB Kingston DDR3 2X1GB 2X2GB for a total of 6GB.
I run linux and windows and this behavior is happening on both OS. only at maximum stress tests (or any decent games!). Running windows 8.1 and Arch Linux.
Do I need to buy a new 4870 or whats the score here? I'm kind of left scratching my head for answers.
Thanks in advance.
