    Red Screen after playing for around 8 min into bf game


    Hey Guys, coming from BSOD section, just wondering

    I have an ASUS 290X card, and an MSI Z97-Gaming 5 motherboard, and around 8 min into the bf4 game i get a red screen and then i have to press the restart button.

    I have a 650 Watt Power Supply, could it be that? I have the Beta Drivers for AMD 14.7 RC3, i used to have 14.4 but same thing occured.

    I havent tried other games.

    Any Suggestions??

    The PSU should be ok, if it's not a very old one and / or crap brand.

    Checked your temp's ?

    Depends on what is overheating. Check the CPU and GPU Temps first.

    I7 reaches a Max of 80 Celcius, and Graphics Card Reaches 70 Celcius

    The Tcase of the i7 4790k is 72.72C: Click

    80C for the CPU is pushing it a bit, but if HWINFO is not telling you that you ran into the thermal throttle, then it's still ok as well: Click.

    The GPU-Temp is ok.

    I would do a Prime95-Run (max. Heat): Click

    Even that BF3 / BF4 is stressing the CPU more than Prime95, it's still good to know if some of your Cores are crashing.
