amd a8-5600k apu(stock heatsink)
corsair 430w psu
small case with front and rear fan
Very confused here my guess is a temp sensor, **Long story short** I never had a problem in the first 8 months since I've built this rig. Was gaming on this pc as I normally have with no problems and out of no where my whole computer crashes.. I go into BIOS its showing my cpu temp is 128c which is my first hint into being the temp sensor.. when I run speccy its showing idle temps at 42c but it is jumping from 42c to as high as 65c instantly and then cools back down to 42ish and does this over and over.. I have removed my heat sink cleaned everything really nice, reapplied Artic silver 5 and installed everything back correctly this I am sure of, all the wires are tucked away nicely to provide good airflow inside the case.Heat sink fan not making any strange noises seems to be moving air well when I feel around the sides of the heat sink.. moves freely when turned by hand when system is shut down. Any thoughts or questions?
