But so far, nothing seems to be working. I cleaned out my rig today from dust and debris to see if that helped the issue; but to no avail. I've run a diagnostic to test if I had a memory leak, and so far nothing. What it's coming down to is that I'm rather sure either my RAM, my processor, or my GPU is dying (either that or my registry has just turned into pure trash.)
So what I'm here for is to ask if any of you experienced cats have any advice or diagnostics/tests I can run to see if something is dying out in my rig. It's around three or so years old now, so it's definitely getting a little out dated. My heats don't ever run higher than 46c on my processor. My CPU idles anywhere between 39-41c; and up to around 46c under load. I'm not entirely sure what my mobo or my GPU is running temperature wise, but I can't imagine it's too hot. I've had my hand in my rig (not directly touching anything) and the key areas (next to fans and such) haven't felt very hot.
Thanks for your help guys.
