Dec 29, 2011, 2:01 AM
when I play Battlefield 3 my computer reboots after 2-3 games. it just freeze and i have to reboot it manually
GPU: 260 GTX
CPU: Intel Core2Quad Q8200
PSU: Corsair hx520
OS:Windows 7 64Bits
When I play LoL it never crash i never get such problems it does it with Trine too so i don't know from where it comes from do u think my GPU overheats it's the only thing i can think about
the only problem is that i cant monitor my GPU temps because my crapy motherboard doesn't allow it.
do u have another suggestion or a program that may give me the oportunity to monitor my temps?

use gpu-z it will monitor the temps independent of the motherboard.
core temp and real temp will monitor just about anything that can be measured.
