1. http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-2310021/amd-8150-overheating-gaming.html was marked solved. Did you re-do the thermal compounds?
2. Under load I see many PCs get hot. Overheating is when it reboots, freezes or such. I find new PC owners freak as the temps go up. Be specific. What is your definition of overheating?
Hey guys, my current setup is giving me a headache. It's my first gaming pc and as the title states, it's been overheating. I bought the rig off of a guy and he said that he's never had problems with it overheating. In the first week or so, it actually shut off a few times because it was so hot. I bought it as kind of a starter pack. I'm planning on upgrading piece by piece to something a lot more powerful but I still need it to function well as is.
NZXT Lexa s Case
AMD 8150 liquid cooled(doesn't seem to work that well)
XFX AMD R9 290
Gigabyte 970a mobo
2x4 corsair vengeance ddr3
750w corsair psu
I have 1 intake fan, two exhaust fans on top, a case fan on the side, and exhaust for the water cooler coming out the back. Then the dual fans on my gpu as well.
The intake fan I have is a cooler master jet Flo 95cfm fan that I bought and relocated the stock fan to the top of the case for exhaust. With all my fans on high if I jump into overwatch, my I will have in the neighborhood of 4 Temps running too hot. If you guys have any advice, I'll take it. Even with the side of the case off it still runs hot. If you would like pictures of the inside of the case, I can include those. Thanks.
