For about a month, my CPU has been working beautifully, but as of a few days ago, it has begun overheating and i cannot play any games at all on my computer. I have a great gaming rig, 8 gigs ram, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960, but it just won't let me do anything at all more than looking at Facebook.
I have updated BIOS, i have put in new thermal paste, i have underclocked it using XTU, and i am going insane without a single remedy working.
I still have the stock cooler on, exactly the same as when it was not overheating. Since i built my computer, i havent had a single problem, until now.
Has anyone else had this problem? Am i just looking at the wrong thing as a problem?
Try with the minimum of ram and also look for any BIOS update for your board.
