Recently I've seen that while playing games after a certain amount of play all game crash if not after 1 hour ,happens after 2 hours .Its just that its not constant ,and I never complained on this finding excuses like "Ok Im on this game for 2 hours and now I think its time to do something else" but crashes are present and can't ignore them any longer ,so what do you think its causing it ?
q6600 @ 3.2 ghz
Ati 5870 1gb
2gb kingston 800mhz
Generic power supply 500 watt
could it be from overclocked cpu ? How to monitor cpu temp during games ?
I'd say you have a 90% chance of that PSU being the issue. The minimum specs are a 500W PSU with 40A on the 12V rails. I am willing to bet it doesn't meat the 40A minimum. Your poor PSU is probably just SCREAMING that first hour.
