I went in to my bios checking my CPU temp in idle 50'C. you think that can be the problem? just asking.

As long as the temperature stopped rising the test was a success.

that was with no test going on or done beforehand. (the BOIS)

The "Furtest" on my GPU keept rising in temp, almost nothing in the end it keept it around 87-89'C.(thats on my worst placed card.) just didnt want it to go above 90'C.



did a test with "Hot CPU Tester Pro" not registerd. nothing wrong there. can it be the cable to the PSU? or something simple like that.




EDIT: think i found 1 problem at least. :S My VRM heatsink is burning hot. ill be calling the company that put it togethet and ask them to take a look at it. ill keep the thread open untill i got an answer from them.

Point a house fan at the VRM heatsink and see if that makes the errors come less frequently.

CPU at 50ºC is fine - I don't start to worry until the high 60's or 70's
GPU can generally go between 100 and 105ºC without damage - but I would start to worry about temps in the 90's (all temps in ºC). When I test at work, I let them go to 95ºC before opening the system and physically checking the card/cooler.

Keep running the other tests, but I suspect that Prime95 will be the one that keeps erroring on you (due to overheating). Interesting discussion about the VRM heatsinks here: P5K Premium VRM heatsink a waste of time..

Good luck!
