    Question Asrock 970 extreme3

    Hey guys! I bought Asrock 970 extreme3 board and fx 8320 cpu... Like 2 days old. Well,all was good,bla,bla,bla,but,problem is,when I try to play any games,I can hear how fans start spinning faster,couse of heating,I believe and when they do,like after 15-20sec my network stops working....I believe it's becouse of heat...I have no idea...can anyone help me? Flashed bios to latest,re-installed windows. Dosen't makes any sence... Any help?

    All best.

    Hey guys! I recently found out,that this mobo has really bad cooling...also same with cpu...and my vga even makes this all worse... I have no clue,what is with this mobo,but I don't recommend it. This is first time,when I have problems with mobo. After new year going to bring mobo and cpu back to store.

    But is it still suffering from "really bad cooling" ?
    #1 - Please, when seeking help, enter the make and model of ALL parts that your system is comprised of in your Signature, or at least the model #'s in your System Specs, then "Save' it.
    ____If you are overclocking, underclocking, or undervolting any parts, informing us of this and their values would prove beneficial in helping you.

    #2 - G.Skill RAM Configurator for your boardSamsung Memory for your boardLatest AMD Chipset Drivers/WindowsLatest AMD Graphics Drivers/WindowsLatest Intel Drivers

    #3 - Please use the eXtreme Outer Vision Power Supply Calculator found HERE to determine if it might be your PSU at issue.
    ____Consider your PSU to be the foundation from which all else is built upon. Anything built upon a weak foundation is poorly built.
