More about crash sound loops crash solid coloured screen
  1. "Ran memtest offf bootable disc (still crash solid blue screen
    twice) "

    Are you saying memtest crashed? If so definitely check your ram settings in bios, also double check your cpu multiplier because afaik 1155MHz shouldnt be possible on an AMD system with a base clock of 200MHz as you only have half multipliers not quarter.
  2. ok turned the mobo on to auto power or something but is sitll crashing but how much diff does 1/2 a volt make on a engtx260? because as u can see on the screenshot it was only at 11.46.

    Now in games

    Counterstrike source - runs for 3-7 hrs with crashing randomly
    League of legends runs for about 20-40min not even 1 game without a crash

    and league of legends is a newer more graphics intense game i think so could it be needing more work from the gpu which means more power needed by hte psu but it cant get that power so it crashes?
