I started up my PC this morning and opened Firefox, two tabs later my PC screen turned black for 7 seconds, when it came back Firefox had crashed and took me to error reporting, it then immediately turned black again this time for 3 seconds and returned to the same report crash window.
Then after starting Firefox again, it black screened me and restarted my PC, and this restart was a bit different, like before the login screen, there was a white still(Like the PC had just hanged or something) and then i got to the login screen. I then started looking to see what the bleep had just happened so i googled my issue and came up with a thread saying that the GPU temps might be the problem and it was overheating, so i opened up hwmonitor, and sure enough my GPU'S temp( while browsing) was at 70c and my CPUS temp was at 68c.I tried closing everything, restarting the PC but nothing worked. It seems that once the temps go up it doesn't go back down.
So i checked my temps right at startup and the were normal with my GPU at 38c and my CPU at 42c, but when i open Firefox or chrome, it rises again, but not much this time it was about 55c on both CPU and the GPU, i noticed steam wasn't running which runs automatically at startup , so i started steam and the temps rose again to 68c.
I've tried air blowing my PC to remove dust from the fans and stuff but after doing that I'm still getting the same results.
Does anyone have any idea what i should do or what it is that is causing my GPU and CPU both to overheat?
also I've checked out this thread: http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-3447105/aorus-gt...
and the guys there are saying its a power supply issue, something about checking the 12v of the power supply, how do you do that?
