Thread Starter 
i dont know if this has been asked before but

after a while while playing cod 4 my comp it just shuts down by itself

i dont think its overheatin cuz my gpu only gets to like 80 my cpu gets to 40 and my mobo only 60-62

my comp specs are amd 6400+ black edition 3.2ghz, bfg tech oced 8800 ultra, buffalo firestixs 4gbs, asus crosshair nforce 590, 550W PSU

got watercooling in the case got a raiditor in the front with 2x 120mm fans also a fan on top of the case and one in the back

and with ne other game i run it never shuts down like WoW, crysis for example

so plz anyone that can help me out i have no idea wat is the problem

Overheating maybe ure GPU that is 80 is way too hot.

Or a unstable Overclock also

Are u running Xp or Vista 64 bit ?

Ure PSU might be a problem too 550watt ? brand ?

U have 4gigs of ram with a 32 bit OS lol

32 bit OS can only read max of 3.25gb of ram.

But if its hitting 90 Degress thats ure problem .

For gaming it should be Under 70.

my guess is that the psu isn't powerful enough. when you play cod4 it uses your cpu and your gpu to their max which increases the amount of power that your system uses. This could be overloading the psu. I would try somewhere around a 700watt psu and see if that fixes things.

the 80c isn't terrible, since the threshold for the 8800 series is around 100c. My 8800gt ran about 75ish before liquid cooling. My gts ran about 80-85c under load.

the 4gigs shouldn't be the problem cause a 32 bit operating system just won't recognize the last gig.

Get 700W or more. 550 is WAY not enough.


edit: Didn't realise somebody else just said that. Oh well, haha
