Currently running the following:
Processor: AMD FX-6100 X6 3300MHZ 14MB 95W AM3+
Motherboard: ASUS M5A99X EVO AMD 990X Socket AM3+ Motherboard
Ram: Corsair Dominator 8GB DDR3 PC12800 1600MHz 2x4GB
OS: Windows 7
I bought the RAM above and a new SSD drive to upgrade my PC. My motherboard states it supports DDR3 2133mhz ram but now I am not sure. I installed the new ram and remove the old ram. I had also installed the SSD and reinstalled Windows 7 on it. After about 30-60 minutes the comp turned off. My comp would turn off randomly from time to time(like once in a bluemoon) so I didnt worry about it. But then it started turning off every 30-60 minutes or so. I realized the CPU was over heating. The weather did get hot and humid so my room was warmer than normal so I thought maybe this could be it but I got scared and took the new ram out and put the old ram back in. My tower is well ventilated. CPU has heatsink and fan attached that seem to be working properly. I use my PC for serious music production and gaming. The problem continues and now I do not know what to do. Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks!
