MSI a78m-e35

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?

Also just tried to scan with Windows defender to check for any viruses they may have anything at all to do with it, and temp went to 86c so i just cancled the scan. :/

Make sure you are using the right amount of thermal paste- about the size if a grain of rice
. Then make sure the cooler is mounted correctly and making good contact with the cpu.

Yeah I did it twice actually just to make sure I didn't mess it up the first time, double and triple checked. It had the problem before I reseated it in the first place:/ it says the fan is spinning at 2000+ rpm's so idk if that sufficient or not.. Maybe fans going bad? I thought about trying a aftermarket cooling system but I didn't have the problem with the stock on there before so I don't want to spend money that I don't need too you know. Thank you for the reply :)

The fan could be going bad. Does the fan make any whining noises? A new cooling system would be cheap, the cooler master hyper 212 evo is only $18.

No it sounds the same as it always has and now BIOS is showing normal cpu temps but speccy is what's going all over the place with the temps also HWmonitor is doing the same as speccy. I read the third party apps tend to be off on amd apu's but even with BIOS reading correctly the computer is still crashing after a few minutes of gameplay. I think I'm just going to get an aftermarket cooler anyways but still something has to be wrong as it wasn't having this problem in the first 8 months.. I don't want to just patch the problem id like to find out what it is. Thank you for the reply!

Took out one of my RAM sticks and pc hasnt crashed at all, i think it is a bad RAM slot because when i removed my new RAM and put the old RAM back in it was crashing but i put it in the slot that is now empty.. could it possibly be full of dust since it was empty for the first 8 months i had the computer?? Ill get some canned air as soon as i can and try that out.. if worse comes to worse ill just return the 2 8gb sticks and get a single 16gb stick and use it in the good slot. Thank you all so much for all the help i really appreciate it!
