Hi, I have always been into gaming and stuff, but I have been having some problems (Hopefully this is the right section, new to these forums)
I been running some tests, although I hardly know what my specs are supposed to be, but i notice a few things looking around other sites.
One is that when i play and intense game, like call of duty 4 for example, my computer has been dying on me. I always thought it was the new video card (NVIDIA 9600) that was overheating. But i wasn't getting a BSOD... It was just blacking out, almost as if it was in a sleeper mode that can't be woken up. I now think it has to do with my core. I downloaded speedfan to look at some of the temps, but my GPU is almost constant at 39-40C which i guess is adverage. But when i get on a game, my Core goes from about 13-14 to 32. It'd probably be higher if i went on a game and played, but wouldn't really have time to check the temps then :P So i figure this is a problem with my Core and I can't figure out how to fix it now :/ It never used to have this problem till just recently I got Age of Empires 3 and it started blacking out, now its blacking out on Crysis and Call of duty 4. Right now as i type this i have Age of Empires 3 open just trying to test it a bit, but i have it minmized, so I'm sure if i started a campaigne it'll heat up a little bit more. So it is the Core thats the problem right? and if so what could cause this :/ I also noticed a few other temps going up, but they are named temp1, temp2, etc... so idk what thoughs are exactly. The one temp went from 0C to 26C while typing this lol. My processor is a 2.6 AMD X2 5000 dual core. Also one more thing i was thinking i could do is overclocking the fans? but idk the rules with that and if the motor in the fan can take it. But it should be able to go faster because at times it starts sounding like a jet engine, but recently hasn't been doing that, which makes me think that maybe something is wrong here o.O Ask any questions I'll be on here for a little bit till i need to go to bed, hopefully i get some quick answers
