I am having a problem with my newly built comp. When ever i start paying a game like cod black ops for about half an hour it will suddenly freeze and i have to manually restart the computer. I already updated the graphics cards with the latest update and the motherboard. what can i do to fix this?
PSU: Corsair gs800
GPU: gtx 465 sli
CPU: i7 2600k
Chasis: haf 922
Hardrive: WD Black Caviar 6gb sata 1tb
Ram: 2x4gb gskill ripjaw
and have a frio cpu cooler
As Proximon said, I had to increase the CPU voltage slightly in order to get my 40% OC to run without problems.
And, beanoslim is correct as far as drivers are concerned. My GTX-275 will not run well on the newer (260.89, 266.58) Nvidia drivers. Therefore, I use the older Nvidia driver 258.96 - since you have the 400 series cards you may have to experiment on which newer driver works best for you.
But first, slightly increase the CPU voltage. Increase in small steps of 0.05 volts and let it run for a day or two before the next incremental change. Do not exceed 1.350 Volts even though the max stated voltage is 1.500 volts on the 2600K.
I updated my gpu drivers because i was having these crashes but still have not solved it. So i will run the stress tests when i get home. Would it have heating problems because the 465 gets to about 95 degrees celcius when i am gaming on the first card while second card gets to 70's, and everything is default as of now i have not changed any settings except playing with fan speed on gpu.
