AMD Athlon X4 860k probs.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, Just built a gaming pc and at first everything was smooth, now Im faced with a problem.
[setup]
[Raidmax Vortex mid tower case, MSI A88x G-45 mobo, AMD Athlon x4 860k cpu, Cooler master Hyper 212 EVO cooler, 2x G.skill 4gb DDR3, Seagate 500gb sata hdd , 2x Corsair AF120mm fans, 1x 120mm stock Raidmax case fan, 1x Small stock case fan ( not sure what brand?) EVGA 650 GS 80gold psu]
So it all started well, loaded up a copy of windows 7. Come to find out Its a 32bit os disc SO I re-did it with a 64bit disc I had. But before I had switched to the 64bit I ran AMD Overdrive and did a stability test for 2 hours to start with and stayed within a stable thermal margin of 64.4c, while at idle it topped at 70c. Now when I redid all the OS stuff, I was downloading my games back onto the hdd, and I opened up team fortress 2 while downloading battlefield 4 and my computer just crashed? frown.gif SO I rebooted, opened AMD overdrive and at idle I was bouncing between 59.7 - 62 C. Im hoping someone can help explain this problem or tell me what I did wrong? Thank you in advanced guys smile.gifthumb.gif

Why are you using Overdrive? It is a completely outdated piece of garbage. The bios of your motherboard should provide all of the necessary controls. Use Prime95 to test the stability of the CPU, HCI Memtest to test the memory. For monitoring purposes HWInfo is a great choice.

Thats what Ive read is that some chips temps stay low and some stay a little higher, but it still does not get me any clue as to why it crashed?
