Windows 7: System reseting when gaming gets INTENSE .

13 Aug 2010   #31

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I experienced a similar problem at home once with a Dell computer that I had. Ended up being 1 bad ram chip...which of course was bought by myself from so I cannot blame Dell for that one.

I agree with the others that you should try to clean out as much of that dust as you can, get the side back on the case for better airflow and add at least 1 fan blowing hot air out of the back.

Have a look at this video Pyronox.

YouTube - How To- Install Computer Case Fans(all sizes)

This is with a long screw and bolt, but you may have shorter self tapping screws.

Either way, it basically the same thing.

If self tapping type, it might be easier to get the screws started in the fan 1st. however you find easier.

Also, if putting in back of case, You want the back of the fan, (where those braces are)
toward the back of the case so its blowing air out.

i cant beleive that only one person(excuse me if i missed anyone else) suggested cleanign (tho they said the cpu) but this could very well be a dust problem in the gpu itself. i know recently my gpu has been getting up to 120 Celsius, and sure enough i had a nice tape of lint clogging the fins of the heatsink. so that could very well be the problem right there and the first place i would look.

the method i would use is take out the gpu, take a can of air and blast the air down the heatsink fins toward the fan, see what pops up, if you have lint remove with tweezers (since you are grabbing between the fan fins) be careful not to break the fan though. finally sick the nozzle of the air though the fan's fins and blast the heat sink fins that way.

Note: do not blast the air upside down as you may cause freeze damage to the card.
only blast in short bursts (usually >5 second long), as you could also cause freeze damage that way.

always read the can.

Alright. This is what happened. I removed the card from the case. Undid the screws one by one. The metal casing wouldn't come off. It was beings a stubborn #$*%@. Anyways i made the best of it. I vacuumed it , then used the air blower. I guess it did the trick. Now when i Alt-Tab during a mission in star craft 2 when the battle is intense, It shows between 65 - 67. To my immense surprise. I knew this was too good to last. Then i saw the hard disk temperatures were peaking at 50 degrees, and the processor was also close to 50 .

If it isnt one thing that its the other . Oh and i still have not installed the 80mm zalman fan yet onto the case. Also the GPU fan speed is on a full blast 100 %. It reached 73-76 when i was playing resident evil.

LOL im SO tempted to try out Crysis on my rig RIGHT NOW ! XD

those temps are perfectly fine mate your gpu wil hapilly chug along at over 100 degrees (not ideal obviously ha ha) your cpu temp is very low considering its under minor load and your hard drive temps are acceptable
