ASROCK With core 2 duo - Page 3

post #21 of 26
Thread Starter 
my friend says it maybe my cpu.

My computer passed the 3d mark test on the graphics part. But on the CPU part of the test it just fails.

Ran some cpu stress tests and it crashes on them too. I forgot to put thermal grease on the cpu. I am buying some today. Could this be an issue with it crashing on the tests. The cpu is getting too hot?

I tightened up the fan to keep the cpu in place better so it works on its side and standing up now

Doesn't the stock cooler come with a crappy thermal interface pad pre-applied? If it does then you have no reason to worry about that..

I'd suggest seeing if you have any friends with a similar processor, and seeing if you can borrow it for a test. You very well might have overheated the thing if you were running it without a thermal conductor.

indeed. It still works. Just still having crashing problems. I need to try the thermal grease and see if that fixes it.
