Here's the deal, I believe my extremely hot MCP is the cause of random freezes forcing me to reboot a few times a day. So, googling the 790i ultra you'll see the layout and also see the problem. Due to the pci slot setup I am forced to have my graphics card right over the passive MCP heatsink, making me unable to attach a better cooling alternatives. I need help guys, I cannot continue running my pc like this, rebooting several times a day and always being afraid I'll lose the study material I just wrote. What would you guys do in my situation? I am not very handy so I cannot cut and weld together something smart, I need a dummy solution. Please help me with this.
