Just ran a 20 minute race in the most demanding of my sims and saw a 1-2 degree Celsius difference lower than previous so that's looking good. Not sure heat played a role in the failures (never saw my GPU above 88c) but it seems like that could indicate the power might be running a bit more efficiently. It will take time so I'll run these programs for the rest of the week or until another crash and report back. Whatever happens though, my software was obviously in need of a tune up so again, I really appreciate your observations and time, @phillpower2.No, just the chipset driver as Windows has already taken care of the rest.
Just road test now.
Gotcha. I wont touch it further if those messages do not sound like a problem to you.You cannot measure the temps inside of the PSU and the High Performance setting that you had is guaranteed to heat things up inside the PSU.
Golden rule #1, if a computer is running ok you should leave well alone so please do.
Once Windows has been installed, you install the necessary drivers for the MB and other hardware and then leave well alone, drivers should not be allowed to auto update and you should never update any driver/s unless the new drivers are intended to resolve a specific issue that you are having, installing new drivers unnecessarily can actually cause you the very issues that any new drivers are intended to resolve and uninstalling the new drivers may not resolve the problem/s that installing the new drivers has caused.
Depending on priority it can take many months before the driver provider releases any fix and depending on the age of the hardware or software concerned they sometimes do not even bother or may have already announced an end of support.
