I don't really know else to go at this point so I figured I'd ask the gaming community for some help. Before I go any further here are my specs.
CPU: AMD Athlon 4x 760k 3.8 ghz.
PSU: Apevia ATX-AS500w
RAM: Blue Vengance 4gb 2x
GPU: AMD MSI R7 260
Motherboard: MSI FM2 A75MA E35
I recently upgraded my PC to the R7 260 from the nividia 610 GT. Before, I have never encountered a blue screen. So obviously at first I thought it was the GPU, but I'm starting to think that it might actually be a overheating issue on the CPU. During game play the temps reach about 52-56c which is about 137f.. Yeah it's bad. Odd thing is, it reached almost the same temps with the old card as well, only it never blue screened. So maybe the new card is heating up the CPU further? Could it possibly be a drivers issue as well? I'm going to attempt to apply new thermal compound on the CPU, hopefully that helps. Let me know what you guys think. Help would very much be appreciated. This is getting rather stressful unfortunately. Thanks in advance!
