My computer over heats and crashes within 5 minutes anytime I try and play VR (Oculus Rift) What do I need to update to prevent overheating?
Notes: 1) My CPU is oculus rift compatible and should be able to handle it. 2) My CPU fan is brand new. Is it not good enough? 3) I'm thinking my PSU might need to be updated or my motherboard is too old.
My parts list is below. Thanks for any help or suggestions.
