|Good afternoon: |
On March 12, 2017, I decided to create a custom PC. I want to mention that this is not my first time. My system specs are the following:
- CPU: Intel Core i7-7700K
- THERMAL PASTE: Thermaltake
- CPU COOLER: NZXT Kraken x31
- MOTHERBOARD: ASUS ROG Maximus IX Hero Z270 LGA1151
- MEMORY: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 DRAM 3200MHz (PC4-25600)
- GRAPHIC CARD: Zotac Nvidia GTX 970
- INTERNAL STORAGE: Seagate 1TB 7200rpm
- PSU: Ultra 550 watts ATX Power Supply
- DISPLAY: I-INC IF191A LCD
- OS: Microsoft Windows 10 64 bit
- CASE: Corsair 200R
For the moment, I’m not planning to overclock my computer because I haven’t been able to upgrade my monitor and graphic card. For the moment, I can survive with what I have.
My problem is the following; as a recommendation from a coworker, I upgrade my CPU cooler from the i7 4090 stock fan cooler to the NZXT Kraken x31. The temps stays around 37 o to 40 o while browsing or doing light work with Photoshop or so. But when I start gaming, sometimes I can play around 1 hour before I received a warning via the NZXT CAM software, saying that my temperatures exceed the 83o and the CPU load spike up to 100% constant. Other times, as soon I start playing I see that message. So far the games I’ve tried to play are: GTAV, Mass Effect Andromeda, No Man’s Sky and Assassins Creed.
Those issues started as soon I played Mass Effect Andromeda and sometimes while browsing, I see the exceeded temperature. Also, with ME: Andromeda, when I start playing my battery backup start beeping and I have to close the game to stop it.
If more information is required, please let me know. I’ll wait for your feedback.
Thank you very much!
