My computer is [fill in blank]

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
Lately my computer hates me. It use to restart or crash when playing cpu intensive games like supreme commander but lately, pretty much anything will crash or cause it to restart. Geoforms gets an error within a few minutes.

At first I thought it was my ram, so I cross shipped for a new pair. It didn't help. So now I guess I should test everything. I'm not very good at trouble shooting since I don't have patience but this is my only option. How should I go about testing everything?

I filled it out from what I can remember. If there's something more you need I can look it up.

Overheating would be my first thought.
What kind of temps do you have?
I know the Armor is heavy, but a Tank

Also what is your exact PSU, model# and specs?

I just updated my cooling... unless I put it on wrong, it should be enough. Everything is at stock speeds too.
