8 gig ram
SeaSonic X Series X650 Gold
So back story, while playing games, video card just randomly froze and i had to restart the machine.
came to the conclusion that it was my old power supply (not supplying enough power) which was a coolmaster 700 watt PSU,
so i removed that and bought a new 650 watt Seasonic.
Alright I installed the Seasonic, turned on my computer and everything was pretty damn laggy. so i turn on speedfan and see my cpu at 88 degrees celsius when computer was idle and 97 degrees celsius when i turned on a steam game.
K..97 really bad for computer.
so at this point im thinking maybe i didn't plug stuff in correctly, and pulled wires out and put them back in.
turn the machine on again and CPU is still burning.
Seeing as it was working fine with my old 700 watt PSU im just confused as why is it doing it with this seasonic..
but i digress, maybe im not changing any settings or something.
Any one got any ideas?
CPU FAN WAS LOOSE, BOUGHT A NEW FAN AND ISSUE HAS BEEN RESOLVED...SITTING at about 35 degrees celsisu
well the stock fan was going fullspeed ahead when i looked at it, and in the bios i set fan speed to max. so it was going.
but if it was actually doing its job in cooling i can't tell you with 100 percent certanty. b/c of those damn high temps its reading. I'm going to try to disconnect power from the 560 ti and see what are the results going to be..but i don't see that really helping.
With a properly applied stock HSF on a stock-clocked/volted CPU, the CPU should not come anywhere near 80C so a HSF mounting issue would be the most likely problem.
If your HSF is cold/lukewarm while the CPU is under full-load and reporting over 90C, you definitely have a major mounting problem. As said above, remove, clean, re-apply paste, re-mount and test again.
