Hello,
I have been having issues with my copm turning off while playing STO. Im not too sure what the issue may be.

When im not playing that game everything seem to work correctly. I bench mark the comp and got a flat 6.0 on all specs on PC wizard 2010. When i bench marked the video card the numbers didnt seem right at all. Its a msi gts 250 and on its base numbers v/s a gt 8800. The 8800 had 10 times the figures.

So what im wondering is if the psu is cutting out on me or is the card dying? From bios the voltages are correct but the north bridge is running very hot at 194*. The cpu and gpu are running cool at 80*

I will add that this issue happen not too long after DX11 was installed. I know that is still in beta so could that be the issue at hand?

I would be questing if the 194 is the correct temp. I would download speedfan and setup the graph to monitor your temps as well as voltage.

stress test your vga use some torture tests and record temps. Anyway put some fan directly blowing on north bridge that should cool it off.

The case is the antec 900v2 it has 200mm, 100mm, 2 80mm, the psu has two 100mm, and the cpu is useing a H80. i used a infered thermo the internal temp of the case when closed up was 61*

    how does someone do one of theses vga stress test? i did the cuda and the video benchmark. both came back with pretty sad scores. they are listed below.

    Raster lines 262471.3
    Random pixels 692.68
    Random lines 79053.52
    Random circles 211.61
    Randon rectangles 1410.74
    FPS 612.785

    not sure what it means but on the graph it looks bad lol!
