World of Warships crashed back to BIOS screen. Goodness ...HELP?

So a YouTube sponsor mentioned a game called World of Warships, so I downloaded it, even with a 300 Mbps connection it took 40 minutes. Anyway, I installed it. I began a beginner game and just started shooting ship's cannons at mountains, houses, hospitals, and anything in range. After about 3 minutes, the computer just shutdown. I had to press the power button about 6 times before it would boot. Old hardware? High Temps? Karma?

Anyone knows if this was just too much for my 2015 era home built computer to handle?

 

What if I bought a GTX 980 and shoved it in the case, would it fix this iron horse computer?

Or is 85C-91C temps the real and only issue?

 

The system I was using was as follows.

 

CPU - i5-4570   air cooled

graphics card - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760

8 GB Ram

 

Thanks for your attention and time.🤔

What power supply do you have? You can check your temps to see using hardwareinfo, and look at it under load.

 

Usually though this happens with an old power supply not being able to provide enough power during a spike.

Is this power supply good enough?

A card that old might also be dried out thermal paste. I had two 660's in SLI, one was dried out. It was running games horribly. Changed the paste runs way better and cooler. Also might be a heat issue. Dust bunnies kill computers.

Taking apart a video card and removing older thermal compound and replacing with better paste is above my skill level.

 

But thank you for giving me a likely improvement.🙂

and thats only what you saw... (is that cpu temp?) other things might get even hotter in such a scenario.

To be fair,  its old and probably not worth much anymore, so a great opportunity to learn and maybe fix it?

 

Its honestly not that hard especially on a lot of older cards... i wouldn't really want to do it on a modern fancy card either,  but i did it with a x1950gt recently and it was super easy, just a few screws..  replace paste, the pads were thankfully still ok... done in 10-20 minutes (well and i took a lot of pics during that time too...)

 

Depends on the model of your card, but i think there isnt really much skill involved,  watch a tutorial and you should know how it goes.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

 

 

ps: here a random video... those cards are still pretty straight forward,  as said just a few screws... and god damn is he terrible at removing paste, its all over the place! but still felt confident enough to make a video, plus in the end *it doesn't really matter how it looks, important is its getting the job done lol*

 

 

 

(personally i use demakeup pads, qtips and isopropyl alcohol to clean off the paste but as you can see an old paper towel works also...)

I have discovered my GPU FAN is not moving!   This is either a dead fan or the enourmous amounts of clumpy dust I can see inside the fan shround and within the fan blades as well. How in the world could I clean that fan which is deep inserted just to see if that is why it isn't turning?

 

How many C is the non moving GPU Fan responsible for?

 

thanks.

The C the fan is responsible for is nearly all of it when you have it loaded like that. Some compressed air in a can can help you with cleaning the HSF.
