The title pretty much says it all. My temperatures are getting up to 99 degrees Celsius... This causes it to overheat and crash. The worst part? I'm not even gaming when this happens.

I just upgraded my RAM from 4GB of DDR3 1866MHz to 8GB of Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz, and that's when the problems really started.

What can I do to stop this? (Besides switching back to my old RAM, which I will try later today to see if I can isolate the problem.)

Specs:
AMD A10-5800K Black Edition
MSI FM2-A55M-E33
Corsair Vengeace 8GB DDR3 @ 1600MHz
AMD's stock CPU cooler
Cooler Master HAF 912
Cooler Master eXtreme Power Plus 500W Power Supply
Western Digital Blue 500GB HDD
Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

I'd appreciate it quite a lot if someone would offer some help.

check to see if the thermal grease is ok on your cpu cooler

you might have to regrease it

while you are at it, you might need some new grease

arctic silver is well received

As far as I know, RAM can't cause to your CPU overheat that much..

Some tips you may consider and/or check:

1.- Like Vegan said, check your thermal compound and if your CPU is properly seated. Too much paste can cause overheating to, so check if it's not around the socket/motherboard.

2.- Check that your CPU cooler fan works, and you can set a fan speed profile in order to make it work a bit faster. If temps goes down, then it's a first step. If then fan it's not working, then check if it's connected to the motherboard pin, or replace it.

3.- Check your ambient temps and your case airflow/fans. Poor airflow can cause to overheat ALL inside your case, including your motherboard. And if some of the case fans work as well.

4.- Check that the fins of the cooler (I'm supposing it's stock) are clean of dust, and the rest of your case.

 

Best regards..

well max thermal for the A10's are 72C according to amd. You may want to check on your heatsink if the issue persist you may need to return it.

I think I can help you with this issue.

Some time ago, when I changed my old computer memory modules I accidentally pushed my processor's fan 'slightly' with was enough to prevent 100% of it's surface touch the processor, wich led it to an overheating problem that almost make me lost my mind because I didn't understand WHY it started to overheat after changing ram.

So in my opinion, you should completely quit processor fan (And it will be a nice oportunity to replace thermal compound on it, I strongly recomend it) and place it again.

Most of the times theese problems came from the most stupid thing (And I'm an expert in stupid things) that you didn't even imagine.

Good luck!

Same problem here. I'm using the AMD fan/heatsink on my A10-5800K and was getting from 92 degC to 110 degC under moderate load (video processing that has my Phenom's at 50 degC to 55 degC). I removed the heatsink/fan; cleaned the AMD material off the heatsink and the cpu, then installed a silver solution from Rosewill (Newegg sales). This dropped temps nearly 10 degC to 85 degC to 100 degC. I asked for an RMA from AMD and am awaiting the replacement processor. This is a real pain - but here is the REAL frustraion: Needing the  system, I installed an A6-6400 processor as an interim unit only to run into video problems. I downloaded the latest video driver from AMD with no change to the problem. When you move a window on the screen, the image "jerks" instead of being smooth..exactly as if the wrong video driver is in use.I have even tried their new Beta driver - same problem!!

 

I have been using AMD processors exclusively for over 25 years..but these two fiasco’s have me reconsidering, especially as AMD seems to be phasing out the Phenoms.
