Hi there. As stated, my computer keeps giving me the "A hypertransport sync flood error occurred on last boot" error after rebooting itself for apparently (to me) no reason. This usually happens when playing certain games. More specifically, it has happened on occasion during World of Warcraft, often during Mount and Blade: Warband, and every 15 minutes or so on Guild Wars 2. I play GW2 and WoW on low settings.
I've tried googling this error and all I have found so far is people with this problem who overclock their processors. I am not and never have overclocked. Any insight into the matter would be much appriciated.
I reformatted my harddrive and reinstalled windows last night hoping it was a virus, but I got the error again when reinstalling Guild Wars 2.
Here's my computer specs.
