HELP, I'm having major trouble. - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Consider that the DFI LP motherboards are power hungry. If you are experiencing random reboots and crashes, I would seriously consider a power supply that is on DFI-Street 'approved' list.

A good CPU cooler probably wouldn't hurt either.

It's not ideal but it shouldn't crash at 55C. The Stock Cooler that came with the 3700 should do well at stock speeds up to about 2.4 or 2.6 Gig.
You could probably get yourself a tube of AS5 and reseat the CPU cooler and be OK until you get your system stable.

If you can spend the money then by all means pick up a nice Zalman, or Thermalright XP90, or TT Big Typhoon. It will help especially if you are OCing your system.

All 4 power connections must be connected on that Mobo.

24 Pin, 4 Pin, 4 Pin Molex, and the 4 Pin Floppy (consult www.dfi-street.com for details)

Make sure the PSU is on their recommended psu list, I would suggest a good OCZ powerstream or modstream 520 or 600w (powerstream for SLI)

Get that thing stable and then you can work on some clocking.

Best to keep full load CPU temp @ or below 50°c
