I have had this problem for a few days, when I'm playing Battlefield 3 5-30 minutes into the game my computer will just turn off randomly and start itself back up with a 1-2 second delay. I have done a memory test with MSI bios and passed mulitple times, and I don't think its the CPU or GPU over heating but Im going to reproduce the problem to get a accurate temp of the CPU after it crashes. Could it be a bad PSU or memory problem?
My PSU, CPU, RAM and MOBO are all new, im still rocking a old GTS 250 which is being upgraded tomorrow when my EVGA GTX 560 TI comes in. I turned off XMP (Extreme memory Psomething...) because I need it on for my ram to run at 1600mhz instead of 1333mhz. I turned it off and back down to 1333mhz and I played two normal rounds of BF3, and one longggg one without any freezes or shut downs. I heard that BF3 is sort of bad when it comes to overclocked CPU's and RAM so that could be a reason.
Thanks for EVGA precision, been looking for a program like this. During a 64 player server I will get nothing more than 75 celsius. But I get a sort of high usage percentage, 80%+ usually around in the 90's.
your pc is entirely ok it haven't any problem the issue is in the game BF3 there are many people who having this problem so i guess that is the game problem.anyway try to reseat you cpu.
I know they are having the freezing issue, I don't think they are having the full system shut off issue. But I am resetting my CPU tomorrow because I bought the Hyper 212+ heatsink/fan so Im installing that and a new GPU tomorrow.
