    Hi

    I'm having an issue with overclocking my 3600XT on a ROG Crosshair VIII, I have it stable in many stress tests but Prime95 is causing a hard reset, no BSOD, with a press F1 CPU temperature warning on reboot. This is happening in the late 70s according to CPU temp and a HWiNFO64 log directly before the crash of 80 degrees. Surely this temperature would not cause this, isn't it normally triggered by 120 degrees ? Is there some huge spike in temp not being picked up by the sensors? Or is some safety setting I'm not aware of causing a CPU temp reset at 80 degrees ?

    Its not the cpu but the board vrms or chipset. Do you monitor those while playing/benchmarking?

    VRM temp went from 22 to 23 and Chipset temp flatlined at 55.3

    Thats not the correct vrm temperature. It should be called vrm2 atleast on my gigabyte board. Chipset looks fine, fan should start at 60c.

    Every sensor other than CPU hardly moves. It may be the sensor referred to as CPU listed under motherboard sensors, which would line up with it being reported as a 'CPU' over temp ? It runs about 5-10 degrees cooler than every other 'CPU' sensor. This OCCT test, running a small data set looks like what happens in Prime but Prime crashes at about the peak of the 'CPU' temp.
    The overclock is passing all other stress tests and is stable in games
