  1. sometimes a weaker PSU can be overloaded due to the GPU's increased power demands which occur only during gaming...

    Agreed, we are going to have to know the PSU.

    Also are you overclocking at all? Have you checked temps of both the CPU and GPU?
  3. Forgot to mention I have a bfg 1000watt psu it worked fine with my old mobo witch was a Biostar GF8200C M2+ and the 4870x2
    and no overclocking,


    temps:
    CPU:27c
    Gpu: 39

    when i play games it only goes up by 10-15c

    :??:
  4. IF these problems only cropped up after a MB swap...

    Clean install, latest chipset /GPU drivers, MB BIOS settings, and, if probs still persist:

    Test video card in another machine, if possible....
    Try another video card and/or PSU in your system

    Unfortunately, if none of these options points to a bad component, the possibilities of a bad MB can't be discounted...
  5. Updated the bios so far so good will post back later with updates thanx for the help
  6. After the bios update been play for a few hrs and nothing. thanx for the help guys
