So I have an AMD-8350 4.0 with a Cosair water cooler. Everything is stock no over clocking what so ever. My CPU temp under load when gaming is around 68-70c. I'm having frequent crashes when playing games..Could it be over heating?
1, what cooler.
2. how is powered/plugged in
3. how is setup fan wise.
Something is wrong, it shouldn't be hitting that high unless the cooler isn't powered right or thermal paste is wrong or something.
also are you seeing core temps or motherboard temps. What motherboard. use openhwmonitor or hwinfo64 to see the core(package) temp and the socket(motherboard) temp.
Alright so the cooler is the Cosair Hyrdo H60, Its plugged into the CPU fan slot, and its exhaling rather well. I currently have the side of my case open and it doesn't make much of a difference. Motherboard is the biostar TA970 btw.
The core temp max of the CPU is at 40.6 c and hovers around 38c.
The temp I reported originally is the Temperature 3 of the motherboard. Which is the one that's worrying me. Which is around 70c. http://i.imgur.com/mGzKsG7.png Screenshot of temps
