  1. How are the temps? Is it overheating? My second guess would be the Power supply, then I would check the ram.
  2. Sounds like overheating to me too, you can use a program to up the VGA card fan speed from the 40% to the 50% stock speed up to 75% to 80%. I use a program from EVGA call Precision I'm sure other there are others I think MSI has one called Afterburner. Be sure all the vents are clear so you get a good air follow thru the case from front to back.
  3. Tried speedfan , Temp2, Temp3 gets 45-60C( CPUs,motherboards temperature ,but duno which is which :<), rest stays at 30-35C.
  4. MOOORE Amps 42 and up
  5. Well if its not a temp issue perhaps it's a power supply issue, do you have another you can swap in to try.
