Hello everyone, 5 days before i built a rig and testing the CPU with prime95 somehow the temperature goes up to 68C (Stock Cooler) and after some minutes computer shut down itself. I didn't Overclocked it. I reinstalled the heatskink twice with thermal paste (Coolermaster V1 IC Value). No Good. Still it keep on shutting down.
Asus M5A97 R2.0
Corsair XMS3 8gb - 1600mhz
PSU - Frontech 450w (Local brand)
Cooler master Elite 310 ( 2 x 120mm fans - 1 blowing out on rear and 1 blowing in on side)
thanks jaideep1337 and m32 i planned to buy Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO. But its currently out of stock in the local store, they asked me to wait for 2 days. One more doubt. Does a faulty PSU causes this problem? Coz i am using very 3-4 years old Frontech PSU.
with the new psu are there any shuts downs?
regarding the temp if 65c on idle then thats high, if you added thermal paste on top of the one that comes with the cooler, you should clean all that on both cpu and cooler and add new paste
