pc turning off completely during gaming

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

ive recently upgraded my ram to 32gb and ever since my pc has been ramdomly turning off completely when playing a game sometimes i can go for 67 hours before it will do this.

is this due to the ram overheating or something else overheating.

it would be nice to know what is happening before i do something.

Hi Arun, Welcome to the forums.


When you upgraded RAM did you swap in new sticks or did you add to what you already had?


Can we also get a run down of your entire systems specifications, including the specifications for each stick of RAM you are currently using?

Remember to quote or tag me so I see your reply.

You can try the following:

  1. Resting the BIOS. (Since you upgraded the RAM the system could be trying to run the new RAM at unsupported or odd specifications a BIOS reset can fix that.)
  2. If you are running XMP, try turning it off. (XMP is still an overclock and can be unstable depending on system.)
  3. Verify you are not overheating. (The FX-8350 has a max temp of 61c, depending on XMP, RAM location, or CPU cooler it is possible you are overheating.)
