im thinking of installing a water cooler for my cpu. thoughts?


Not something I would use.

"Why not go with a liquid-cooling CPU Cooler, such as the Corsair H100?
There are a few reasons not to go with a liquid-cooling CPU Cooler:
- Similar cooling performance, but with a much higher noise level, compared to high-end air CPU coolers.
- Higher cost ($110 for Corsair H100 vs ~$90 for high-end air CPU Cooler)
- More possible points of failure (pump, tubing and fans vs only fans)
- Risk of a leak, which can damage many other components!



In the end, a high-end air CPU Cooler is less likely to fail, cannot possibly leak liquid/damage other components, offers similar cooling performance with less noise and costs less." source, Hardware RevolutioN.


What are your temps like when gaming?


Remember that where a CPU is provided with a stock cooler and you change it for an after-market one, you void the warranty, so you do so at your own risk.

150F is 65.5C, We need to know exactly where the temp is taken.

Please download SpeedFan. Run the program and post a screenshot of the results.

On your next post, use full Editor.

How to take a screenshot.


Click on the ALT key + PRT SCR key..its on the top row....now click on start...all programs...accessories...paint....left click in the white area ...press CTRL + V...click on file...click on save...save it to your desktop...name it something related to the screen your capturing... BE SURE TO SAVE IT AS A .JPG ...otherwise it may be to big to upload...


then after typing in any response you have... click on browse...desktop...find the screenshot..select it and click on the upload button...then on the lower left...after it says upload successful...click on add reply like you normally would.

<br style="color: rgb(13, 41, 117); font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px; text-align: left; background-color: rgb(242, 242, 242); "><br style="color: rgb(13, 41, 117); font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px; text-align: left; background-color: rgb(242, 242, 242); ">

I would say your temps look OK even though a flame is showing on the GPU, this can go much higher and still be OK.

See if we can find out why your are getting BSOD issues.

Can you remember what you were doing when the problem surfaced?


Go to the following page, scroll down to Crash Analysis, download, Who Crashed, install and run. http://www.resplendence.com/downloads

Click on the file you just downloaded and run it.


Put a tick in Accept then click on Next
Put a tick in the Don't create a start menu folder then click Next
Put a tick in Create a Desktop Icon then click on Install and make sure there is a tick in Launch Whocrashedbefore clicking Finish
Click Analyze
It will want to download the Debugger and install it Say YesWhoCrashed

will create report but you have to scroll down to see it

Copy and paste it into your next reply

Download

BlueScreenView

No installation required.


Double click on

BlueScreenView.exe file to run the program.

When scanning is done, go

Edit>Select All

Go

File>Save Selected Items, and save the report as BSOD.txt.

Open

BSOD.txt

in Notepad, copy all content, and paste it into your next reply.


Thanks to Broni for the instructions and program

unknown

If no updates for these drivers are available, try searching with Google on the names of these drivers in combination the errors that have been reported for these drivers and include the brand and model name of your computer as well in the query. This often yields interesting results from discussions from users who have been experiencing similar problems.


Read the topic general suggestions for troubleshooting system crashes for more information.

Note that it's not always possible to state with certainty whether a reported driver is actually responsible for crashing your system or that the root cause is in another module. Nonetheless it's suggested you look for updates for the products that these drivers belong to and regularly visit Windows update or enable automatic updates for Windows. In case a piece of malfunctioning hardware is causing trouble, a search with Google on the bug check errors together with the model name and brand of your computer may help you investigate this further.

Hi.
Thanks for the info.

Indications are, 2 software problems and 1 hardware problem.

Can you remember what you were doing when you received the BS, gaming, browsing, playing music?

Have you added new hardware like headphones?

Did you have any external hardware plugged in, like HDD?

Did you recently update any drivers.

Have you made any alteration in the BIOS?

Have you over-clocked the PC in any way?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Go to device manager,
Check the box , show hidden device.
If any flags, copy and paste into your next post.


Have a look at this page, then look in action centre to see any information.
http://www.vikitech....rotect-computer

Are there any actions to take?
