I built my computer. With Chaintech 7NJS Zenith with athlon 2800+ processor. Raedon 9700 pro with 2 sticks of 512 ram. I try to play warcraft 3 and Unreal 2. It locks up and i get a blue screen. Nothing else, just my whole screen is blue.

When i first put my computer together, it was running hot at about 85c - 90c. But i fixed it and now is running at 50c -54c. could i have damaged my processor with those temperatures?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Tom

Brandon,
I think what he was trying to say was that he lowered his temps and therefore fixed the high temps issue. But his temps are still a bit to high for my standards.

I'm surprised he didn't fry the processor.

You can put it under a cpu stress test to see if it passes the test.

Did you use a new heatsink/fan and Artic Silver 3?

Are you still getting blue screens?

Do you have "halt on all errors" enabled in your bios?

Have you reviewed the events log in your system folder?

I meant i fixed the extreme temperature. I think it is still high but i looked on alot of websites. Even AMD's and they dont give me a "normal" temperature. They said it depends on your hardware. I have a Volcano 10+ heatsink w/o the Artic stuff. They just give you a max. temperature which was about 85-90c. I would like to get it at least to 35-40c And yes i did have on "Halt on all errors" what should i put it as. Keyboard and mouse or disk drive errors or No errors? Thank you guys for helping me with this.

Thomas,
That's good, at least you know your cpu is not showing signs of instability.
I leave my bios setting at "halt on all errors", but luckily I have not gotten any errors.

You should try the Artic Silver 3, it should lower your temps into the 40s.

Also, try looking for any devices in device manager that are problematic.

You should have SP1 and all windows critical updates and patches installed from the windows update site.

Forgot to mention that you should look at those 2 games sites to see if there are any known issues of that type and any patches which may have been released.
