After having had some major hardware issues with my old components, I finaly managed to build up my new system. First time using windows 10. And I’m having a few issues. The system seems to be unstable. Blue screens, or just getting stuck. (audio clipping, PS/2 keyboard not responding with the numlock key… Event log reports some unknown critical issue, which according to google is commonly due to a bad PSU)
I’m trying to fix this issue, because I don’t think it’s the PSU at all. It’s an 850 watt 80+ gold Zalman PSU, and it works just fine with my old components which had a bigger power draw.
But the main issue I’m wondering about, is the CPU temp as reported in HWmonitor, bios and everywhere else. It will for example jump to 40 degrees C, and then within a few seconds drop back to 30 degrees with 2 degrees intervals. To then just instantly jump back up to 40 degrees. I can not explain this at all, because I’m using an AIO liquid cooler. And even if I had it poorly mounted, it should not jump around with those temps like that. 40, 38, 36, 34, 32, 30, 40 again… Does anyone know what can cause this issue, or is it just a software issue… (it happens in hw monitor and bios/uefi)
Btw, I did try an cinebench test. Got a perfectly normal score there, and no thermal issues, other then it floating around. It would also hit 4200 mhz.
(if you guys/galls need more specs, I can provide them) I’ve also updated my bios to the newest version.
