I am beyond confused as to what is going on, for a year now I have been experiencing BSoDs when playing The SIms 3, ocassionaly when playign Civ 5. It is frustrating to say the least.
But here's the thing.
Everywhere i look I get different answers
When using SpeedFan, when at load playing Sims 3 it reports the CPU reaching about 70c+ (maybe 73 at max if I recall)
CPUID reports on idle at about 21-30, maybe 40 if I do an action (which is weird, it jumps rather quickly, which I don't think anything can warm up that fast). It also reports 21-30c when at idel despite the fact that SpeedFan reports about 44C at the moment.
Everywhere I read, people say that 70C is acceptable.
Yet, I also read that 70C is already too high.
So I am confused as to how hot my AMD FX 6100 Six-Core Processor (3.3Ghz) is getting and can get hot.
ALSO BEFORE I FORGET
My dad said that you can set at which temperature the PC will auto-reset and that from what I saw it was set to 51 degrees....?
