Thumbs down Random Reboots

my main rig (see sig) has strted to randomly reboot after about 15-20 min of playing bf1942, i also have FAH running in the background. it ran fine this way until about 2 weeks ago. when the comp restarts, i get an error message saying that a driver caused the reboot, and all of the "info" is sent to microsoft in that error reporting dialog.

could the recent warm weather be the cause of this? (although i only recorded 58C with a 38C ambient and full load)

i think i can provide the details ( the more info tab on the error reporting dialog) of the reasons for the crash if it will help fix the problem.

You know, I recently started having a similar problem. I've backed off my OC and I've been running stable for two days now, so I think that the change in climate with the coming of spring might be the culprit. Like temps never got that high (54C with my RBX, 49C with my direct-die), but I WAS pushing the system right to the limits, so much so that bumping my FSB by 2 MHz was guaranteed instability.

A small rise in ambient temperature can make what seems a disproportionate hike in operating temperature. Even if the increase seems small, looks can deceive.

heh, i just noticed that people actually replied to this thread.
well, the avergae temp at full load has risen from about 48C to 51C as a result of the seasonal change. i backed off the OC to 2.8ghz and now its stable, no reboots. i wasalso pushing this proc. to its limits, 2.82ghz seems the highest it can go, no matter how much more voltage i apply.

and also a funny thing: if i take all OC off and run stock everything, the load temp is only about 49C, so its not like i have bad cooling or anything like that.

I actually found in my situation that the problem wasn't my CPU OC at all; it was the cooling on my FETs. The fan I installed to cool my FETs for my VCore regulator wasn't running (came unplugged). Once I plugged it back in, everything stabilized again. I didn't take any temp measurements, but I know from past experience that those puppies will get up around 100C because of how hard I am pushing things. FETs don't turn on and off well at those temps, and caps tend to lose some capability as well.
