Hi, I honestly know very little about computers and I have tried to wrap my head around all of these needs for PC's but I can't seem to keep up. I recently purchased a PC about 6 months ago and tried to get decent parts and what not and now, for some reason my PC keeps overheating while gaming to the point where the CPU is burning hot and the graphics card keeps crashing my games. I am not over clocking or anything for that sort and I have already tried using CyberPower support and it was no help so I think I might be forced to get a liquid cooling set. My PC used to run games such as Overwatch. Dota 2, Far Cry and Civ 5 & 6 without any problems on high end settings. Now, the same games I once played stress out the PC to the point where I can only go 2 or 3 hours until my PC needs to cool down :smash: . I am happy to provide any info on the specs, case, and temp settings if needed! If you guys believe the liquid cooling option is the best way to go (I'd like to spend anywhere between 150-300) can someone please provide some names of good/compatible sets? Thank you for your time  :bananas: .

The best is if you end the gaming and will start learn something about computers.

It would help to know the specs of the computer. Have you checked to make sure that fan is spinning? Is there dust on the fan or vents? Can you hear the fan spinning faster in heavy play?

"I recently purchased a PC about 6 months ago and tried to get decent parts" Did you build this yourself or have it built for you?

That's wonderful and all, but I am here for exactly that. If you don't have anything helpful to comment please don't comment at all

GPU: AMD FX™-8350 Eight-Core Processor, 4000 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
CPU: Processor AMD FX™-8350 Eight-Core Processor, 4000 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
OS: Microsoft Windows 10 Home
RAM: 16GB DDR3
All of the fans are spinning except the back fan responsible for throwing air out, but that one I simply spin a little bit and then it does it's job. There isn't any dust in the vents and yes I can hear the fans spinning during heavy play. I had the PC built for me by CyberPower, but I chose most of the parts.

To add to the last post, and in case you want step-by-step instructions regarding Speccy you can view or print before you run it:

 

Publish a Speccy system snapshot and provide the web address for it in your message.  Here are downloadable step-by-step instructions for doing this:

I didn't see the high temperatures I was expecting to see. Did you run it after gaming or after it has been idle? If idle I'd play games for a bit then run it again. II didn't see any suspicious on the report that would help me.

Using something like HWMonitor-Pro (which is still free) and turning on the logging feature before gaming would help to determine how the temperature is varying and by how much.

This was after playing two matches of overwatch with the case open....I took the snapshot right after my video card blocked my game from using it.

Which is really, really weird given that your temperatures are shown as being in the 50s.  That's well within normal limits.

This is the Norm for me as of two months ago...either the whole system crashes (rare), the game I am playing freezes and crashes (very often) or the game crashes because it's been blocked (common and now increasingly occurring). I have no idea what it could be if it isn't a heating issue. I never had this issue in the winter and in the Summer it was so bad that I couldn't even play a single game because it kept crashing unless I opened the case. Now, I have an AC in my room and it seems to be helping the PC run better and crash much less, but this is still an issue. I'm not sure what it could be and I'm at my wit's end lol.

I think the next step would be to update your Nvidea drivers. You can get them here http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us .
