PC Problems **PLEASE HELP**

noahfuturePC

13 months ago

So I have had my computer up and running for almost a month now and everything seems to be working great. Temperatures are awesome and overclocks are all stable. Recently, I have noticed that when I am playing a game on my PC, sometimes it will freeze for about 5 seconds then reboot. No files seem to be lost after reboot and it looks just like I restarted my PC, except I didn't. Please, ask and questions if it may help me find and answer.

  • OVERCLOCKS:
  • CPU to 5GHz
  • GPU Core clock +200 / Mem clock +150
  • RAM 3GHz

  • Ran tests which are on my completed build and pictures are posted on completed build. Unsure if I will be able to link it in the description without getting flagged.

How did you verify your overclocks and for how long? Sounds like your overclocks were never stable.

Edit: Because if it was only the 15 minutes in your completed build that isn't even enough to get thermals stable in your case.

Ran test for 15 min and nothing popped up.. I'm relatively new to this stuff

That isn't enough to verify an overclock stability.

8+ hours then maybe you have gaming worthy stability with maybe the occasional crash.

Generally I prefer something like Asus's Realbench which will vary loads during the stress testing because you can find rare chips which can handle a single long duration stress test but are unstable in mixed loads like gaming.

I am afraid to do it for too long? Stress testing for too long won't do anything bad to my parts, will it?

Nope the built in safeties will throttle or crash your system before anything gets hurt.
