Ok guys, I just finished my first build and I have enjoyed my new computer so far. I installed CPU-Z and SpeedFan. SpeedFan is recording my temps at
Stock CPU Fan
AMD Phenom X4 955 BE
4GB DDR3 Memory with 8-8-8-24 timings 1.63V
Radeon 5770 Juniper GPU
This is just sitting idle on Windows 7 Desktop. Now for the question.
My comp has crashed twice now to the boot screen and I think it may be because of the CPU temp.. although I'm not sure. When I started multiple programs and tried to get my CPU usage up and had SC2 and a few other things running suddenly everything started to spazz and I ctrl-alt-del to log out and came back in to all my programs ended. The last time I looked at SpeedFan the Core temp went above 50C. Is that bad?? I have no clue what a good temp for these would be. Nor do I know how to put an artificial load on my comp and test it. Please help me out to get this running smoothly.
Also btw I didn't overclock anything, I just went into MOBO BIOS and set memory timings, voltage and what not.
P.S - I have another issue that I figured maybe one of you guys would have an idea of how to fix.... I put my screen at full resolution in Windows 7 at 1920X1080 and it doesn't fill up my 23" Asus Monitor like it should. There is an inch border at the top and bot and like 1.5" border left right, no matter what resolution it is at. I grabbed ATI Catalyst Control Center and this has not helped at all.
