I have been having problems with random restarts that do not notify me and they usually occur when i am gaming and a few times when using the computer for web searching. I downloaded OCCT which was measuring the temperature, as i was thinking that it was due to overheating and after several minutes it stopped as the CPU temperature had shot way above the max temperature, it was 255 degrees with the max being 85. Is this the cause of random restarts? Whats the solution?
I used 'Speccy' and this gave me 50degrees after about 10 minutes of gaming, and also 50 for my motherboard, i brought my PC in September so its not that old and i have not applied any thermal paste as it was built when i purchased it
Windows 7 64bit
AMD FX-4100 processor
8GB duel-channel DDR3 RAM
MSI 760GM-P23(FX) motherboard
ATI Radeon HD 5400 Series 2GB graphics
932GB Hitachi HDS721010DLE630 ATA Device HDD
And can you be more specific about ypur restarts?
do u get blue screen of death? or just simply power off like if you unplugged socket off the wall?
If your cpu temp is 50 then it is fine. So i assume it is power supply issue.. What is the brand and model of your PSU as well as wattage
