I built my pc a few months back ready for Battlefield 3. Before it release I never had a problem running any game or anything. Since Origins install and battlefields download I can play no problems for 20 mins or so then my pc starts to slow then freeze all together. I'm not overclocked or anything everything is stock. Am I overheating? Is my power supply failing? I don't understand that I used to be able to play everything flawlessly for hours. Now even without loading origin my pc still slows then crashes.
My specs are:
Asus p8p67 pro b3
Intel i5 2500
2x XFX ati 6950 2gig in xfire 8x8
G skill 8gig ddr3 Ripjaw 1600mhz
2x Corsair Force 3 60 gig in raid 0
Corsair HX750W modular power supply.
Running on Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
All drivers and windows updates are up to date. Thanks Evan
I ment could overheating be causing this? I have hwmoniter running and all looks ok. CPU 50-60 max and gpu around 70 max. Since the origin/bf3 install even leaveing it open on the desktop slows then freezes. No mater what I'm doing it freezes. I've tried fresh windows install and problem still happens. Is there any software to run that scans for problem hardware?
Turns out the power supply fan was working. I'm so noob. And it was my second raid setup for game installs was the problem. I've removed the drives and only running my ssd raid and I havnt had a problem since. Finally I can complete a map of online bf3.
