New PC issue (Video Card overheadting?)

#1Teen Girl SquadPosted 6/1/2012 4:45:32 PM
I recently built a new computer (i5 3570k, 7850) and its been fine for the first few weeks, but over the past few days my computer has frozen/crashed while playing games (mostly D3, but also tried the Witcher). My CPU is OC'd at 4.2 (idle 35-40c, 68-72 under load) but the 7850 is still stock. Is it possible my GPU is overheating? I ran the uniheaven bench for a while but I don't know how to measure temps and whats safe for my 7850. Is it possible that my system overheats total? A GPU failure? It worked fine for hours until yesterday. Any help would be appreciated.

Have you stress tested you cpu? A minimum of 8hrs of Prime95 on Blend.

I've done two, I'll try 8 the next time I'm at work. If that goes through, then I'll try the GPU testing. Thanks for the input.

Just stress tested my CPU with Prime 95 blend for 9.5 hours. No errors, max temps were 73-75 across my four cores. How do I stress test my GPU in the same way?

Power Supply?

Also, use speccy/MSI afterburner for temps

I stress tested my GPU for about an hour with uniheaven + afterburner. Max temps were about 75f. Is it safe to run it for a l9ong time/several hours in a row like I did with my CPU?

75f? Or did mean 75c? 75f would be a ridiculously good temp, but 75c is about average and perfectly fine. There's no need to stress it any longer. It's definitely not your GPU overheating. What is your powersupply? If it's too low that might be the case.

Sounds like a video driver issue to me.....
