    Default ASrock FM2A88X-itx+ with A10-7850K overheating problem

    Hello my friends,

    I have this setup but my CPU temperature is really high which causes my computer to stall when playing games. Could people with similar components please share bios settings? Maybe I'm doing something wrong. Here's my setup:






    Motherboard - ASrock FM2A88X-itx+
    CPU - AMD 7850K
    RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200)
    GPU: XFX R7 250 2GB DDR3 LOW PROFILE
    CASE: Antec ISK 310-150
    CPU Cooler: Scythe Kozuti Low Profile.
    OS: Windows 8.1
    Bios: v2.10


    My Idle temp is 60-70c
    I use the default UEFI settings.

    Just in case someone thinks it's the case being too small problem I've even tested it while case is open and without the extra GPU.


    Thanks in advance

    1. No OC applied while "hot'?

    2. What's the memory running at speed/MHz wise? And too, are they setup in the BIOS using their XMP profile(s) or did you set the 4 main timings manually?
    #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.

    #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.

    Share and share alike, but the point I never get is why when some asks to share that they didn't post theirs. Thus leading to the questions I needed to ask above.

    It's super simple to take BIOS screenshots and post them here. From within the BIOS, with a USB stick in a Bolton native USB 2.0 port, pressing F12 will capture an amazing screenie of what is displayed on the monitor and save it to the root of the USB drive. When that particular BIOS page has more hidden lower simply scroll down and press F12 again. Thus ensuring all that pages info gets captured and posted.

    60-70c at idle is high. What fan is on the cooler? Does it have a fan, or is it a passive cooler? I didn't look.

    Thanks for telling me how to get the screenshots. I will immediately get them and post them. The CPU cooler has a fan, from what I read the Scythe kozuti is a pretty decent cooler. The memory I have set with profile at 2400.

    Edit: Bios screenshots:

    Welcome to the forum.

    The reviews at FrostyTech and SilentPcReview are pretty good for a 40mm tall, 1.5U low profile heatsink.
    As with any cpu cooling setup the cooling ability varies with fan speed.

    Can you report the cpu fan speeds and cpu temperatures while you are gaming?
    The most important measurements will the the values shortly before your system "stalls".

    Possible causes are fan speeds that are too low or the base of the heat-sink isn't making full contact with the top of the cpu.
    When you installed the cooler did you gradually tighten the 4 screws using a crisscross "X" pattern?

    I've already checked that out and my temp just before the system freezes is around 93c. About the cpu cooler setup I am actually thinking that maybe I did something wrong but since I don't have any cpu paste handy I can't test it. I ordered some IC Diamond 24 Carat paste and waiting to receive it tomorrow or the day after and then I'll try to re-seat my cooler. I did though do it the right "X" way since i'm no beginner but you never know...

    What is the brand and model name/number of your power supply?

    The 11.616 12 volt reading at idle isn't very good.
    The 12 volt specification is plus or minus 5%.
    This means that the allowable voltage range is 11.40 to 12.60 volts.

    Gad zoooks man. Ummm, you need a better/higher output PSU!

    And profJim, if the idle is 60-70c, knowing gaming temps is really rather redundant.

    Phew. 150w psu just ain't gonna cut it here and may very well be contributing to your temp issues.

    In that last screenie, "CPU 1 Fan Settings: Standard" , what options do you have there available in the pulldown under "Standard"? This, CPU 1, I assume is where you have the coolers fan plugged.

    hehe, did I mention you need a better pSU?
