Pc freezing after hardware upgrade

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Original PosterOP

Hey

I recently upgraded my pc with a new motherboard, ram and the new i7 7700k intel cpu and after i upgraded i have been having some wierd freeze movements where i hear almost a static like sound in my headset and i cant access task manager and the caps lock light wont turn off and on when pressed.

cpu not overclocked but at turbo speed.

The cpu is running at 40 degrees celsius at idle with watercooling (bit too high i would say) and sometimes it spikes when in idle up to around 70 degrees. The cpu gets up to around 70+ degress while playing a game like pubg and it then does this freeze after quite some time (i think its because it's spiking up in temp)

Can someone please help me i think its the cpu thats broke and i talked with intel but they just sent me around in support.

Let me just add that this:
motherboard: asus rog strix z270f
cpu: i7 77700k
gpu: asus 1080 strix
Ram: HyperX Predator DDR4 3200MHz 16 gb
power supply: Cooler Master GM G750W - 750W PSU 
Hdd: Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 - 2TB 
sdd: Samsung 850 EVO 500GB 2.5" SSD
Watercooling: Corsair Hydro Series H100i v2
Led: NZXT HUE+ Advanced PC Illumination

No i did not but i did have to reactivate it, do i need to do a fresh install? and would that even have something to do with the high temp in idle mode?

Whenever changing a motherboard, you should always do a fresh install. The crashes/freezes are likely due to bad drivers and conflicts from multiple different chipset drivers installed. Do a fresh install of windows and it will likely fix your problems.

But what about the 40 degrees temp with spikes up to 70 on idle with watercooling on, cant see how that can be drivers?
