    It sounds like a possible overheating problem. As a test try running with your case open and a house fan blowing directly on the motherboard for a day to see if this fixes your problem.

    If it does, you need better cooling in your case.

    Do you have a temperature monitoring program installed? What are your temps both for idle and full load?

    Does TRIXX tell you your CPU temps? We need to know the max temps you are hitting during daytime while you are playing games. Does TRIXX have a temperature "history" function so you can tell it to monitor your temps while you are gaming and check it afterwards?

    If not, try this program: http://www.techspot.com/downloads/26-motherboard-monitor.html

    P.s., by "cooling system" that is exactly what I meant: how many fans blowing in and out of your case.

    I would clean out everything in your case, heatsinks, vents etc... Install some exhaust and inhale fans and run Everest to check what your temps are.

    urrmmm..jarvis..yeah.. i cleaned up everything last nite. that is the result...

    the cooling systems, is that only for mother board or for whole CPU?

    actually Trixx is my VGA Manufactured software for overclocking. came with the package. SAPPHIRE. maybe the temperatures that show in trixx is the VGA itself.

    in Asus probe, there is available thing just like what DONAGUAL said. i can record the pc temperature before playing the games.

    :haha:
