The dark spots on the CPU may indicate it has been overheated at some point. This could be caused by a number of things, Board, CPU, bent pins, poor power supply. What PSU do you have?
I have no faith in installing drivers
. I've done this in a million different ways for a year soon. So I'm going to ship my GPU away within the week.
I've had the CPU since 2009 I think and I used the original CPU fan at first until I noticed that it could go up to 100 degrees at some points. I now have a NEW CPU fan. There is no overheating problem.
So either it's something from that time (because I just have moved my CPU other than those two times I tried to RMA my motherboard) and either it's from then or it could be my PSU.
A poor PSU as in it's broken and gives off too much? It's a 850W something. I don't know what brand it is. But it was a good one. The recommended one by the store owner. And the store owner is a friend so he wouldn't recommend me shit. I changed it from a 650W due to my GPU eating too much power, and we thought 850 was enough. At least it was at the time because it stopped killing my harddrives.
I lost 3 harddrives due to the PSU not being adequate.
Too much information I assume, so I'll just say that I have a good brand 850W PSU. I could look up what it's called but I'd have to make phone calls home etc.
