The reason why I posted in this thread, was that I read elsewhere what I have done has killed my motherboard. So here's the story. My motherboard says it can only handle 65w processor for the maximum. I asked my friend who knows more about hardware about installing my new processor a 125w into it, he said it won't hurt it the most that will happen is it won't turn on. So I tried it, and instead of running at 3.4ghz it was running at 647mhz. So I removed it and replaced the original. Now it just loses power between 2-8 minutes of running. Is there anything I can do to fix this or do I just need a new motherboard?
I installed coretemp, the only things running on my computer was the web browser Google Chrome and I exited it once I downloaded the program. After install my temp was 80C , with only core processes running its stayed at 64C. Whenever It was losing power i was watching netflix. Could I have installed the heatsink improperly to cause this?
