  1. "Now that you're on wireless, you'll be using up more bandwidth." - My brother when I got a new computer with a wireless card, 2013 "You're on ethernet now? That's not fair, you're plugged right into the router soaking up all the bandwidth!" - My brother when I got a powerline adapter for my computer, 2017
  2. Furmark stresses the GPU in a way where it heats up way more than you would see in common scenarios (mining, gaming, etc.). Have you tried using different software to stress or bench your GPU?
  3. Checked everything except memory... turns out the XMP profile in UEFI wasn't on XMP, which had a higher voltage configured. Played a few hours of Overwatch and everything turns out alright so far. Will report back soon. @M.Yurizaki Just going to tag you in an edit instead of bumping this again, fixing the RAM voltage did it, haven't crashed yet after a day or two.
  4. @M.Yurizaki @Thony Just threw in an EVGA G2 650 and I'm still crashing, so it's not the PSU, I suppose. Crash logs are as follows: http://pastebin.com/XAHcteVm http://pastebin.com/3RLCBczP What else could be the problem?
  5. Just sorted the events by Level, they all look like the one above. Good thing Newegg has sales on EVGA units, I guess. Thanks everyone for the help, I always forget how helpful these forums can be.
  6. I've had an issue where two of my RAM slots mysteriously stopped working: The other two RAM slots, they have been working fine for months, in which I ran 4+8 in single channel. Temps are also fine, CPU under 60°C and GPU under 70°C at all times.
  7. I know, I bought it when the CX Series was the norm. It's served me well, but it's odd that this problem popped up out of nowhere, and is persistent and occurs often. I keep getting the "Critical" error regarding the kernel and Error Code 41, though I looked at the logs again and I found something regarding Bug Checking: http://pastebin.com/8Ws8Ts6e Don't know if it's SOP or it's actually what you're talking about, but I hope it's something I won't have to shell out for.
  8. Specs to start:CPU: i5 3570K (stock)Mobo: Intel DZ77SL-50K (latest BIOS, 0097)12 GB Crucial Ballistix DDR3 @ 1600 MHz (XMP enabled)GPU: MSI-brand Radeon RX 470, 4 GB (stock clock speeds)PSU: Corsair CX600M OS: Win 10 Pro 64-bit For the past few weeks my computer has been, at random, shutting down completely and rebooting on its own. I've pinpointed the problem to it being under load, and can cause my system to shut down/reboot when playing Overwatch at any time within three hours, or by running both a CPU and GPU stress test concurrently for twenty minutes. I tried the OCCT
  9. Apparently getting modded money is getting a bit harder since they reworked the anti-cheat with Cunning Stunts. Your best bet to getting rich quick is to grab a few dedicated friends and do Criminal Mastermind.
  10. I fully understand what you said. The in-OS utility and the MoBo identify the CPU as unlocked, I don't see why I shouldn't be able to overclock it.
  11. Both were second hand. CPU only used once, mobo refurb.

  13. No, no matter what I set it to I the multiplier stays at 34, according to CPU-Z. I tried enabling turbo boost and bumping the multiplier to 38 and I'm still at 34.
  14. I've been wanting to overclock my 3570K for ages now, but I can't figure out how to do it in the BIOS for this motherboard. I can't seem to locate and set an explicit "Core Multiplier," and the closest thing I found doesn't do anything when I boot into Windows. Since I probably can't screencap in there, I have some pictures of the relevant screens, and I can provide more if needed. http://imgur.com/a/zyUbi
  15. Over 1000 hours in GTA V and Rank 305 please help me
