Computer Not Stable

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hey, there wasn't like a "tech support" section and i've gone through literaly everything so i don't know if this is an okay place to post this, if not then mod please fix it.

AMD Athlon II x4 620 2.6Ghz
3.25 GB Ram (4gb installed but 32bit OS)
msi-770-G45
ATI Radeon HD 5770

For some reason, out of no where my comp went unstable, it's not overheating (on prime95 torchure test with 4 threads, it only goes up to 70 degrees Celsius)
My fps in the game Global Agenda droped out of no where but is now okay again, and my fps was always fine in the game CrimeCraft, but in DC Universe, my comp restarts (unless i play at lowest posible resolution)
They all run on the same Engine UnrealTournament3

It's like everyday therse something new wrong with the computer, if anyone can help me with this it'd be great

70 degrees is too hot for that CPU! the limit before damage is 71*C according to AMD's Spec Sheet. you need to drop the temps to be more stable. even the stock cooler should keep your temps WAY below that, specially if you havent OCed. checked for dust build up? reseat cooler? new thermal paste?

try to do something about those temps, imho.

I'm pretty sure the limit is 62C on AMD.
You're too hot. Way too hot. I suggest reseating the stock heatsink with new thermal paste.

I think that goes more for Intel rather than AMD chips

AMD lists your CPU safe to 71*C, but i would like to keep temps in the lower 60s.

i cleaned up all the fans and stuff, and ran a torchure test,
it capped out at like 60 degrees, thanks for the help guys
while i was cleaning out the parts, i opened up my gpu fan and then realized there was thermal paste on it.
i put it back on, would that spoil the thermal paste?
should i re open it adn reapply the thermal paste?

If you took out the entire GPU cooler, then you would indeed want to reapply the thermal paste.
