    Hi.
    I've build a pc for my daughter and i got a G3450 cpu for a fiver from CEX and the computer keeps shutting down and restarting. The cpu is fitted with a stock cooler on a Asrock Z97X killer MB. 16gb 2400mhz ram ( set at 1600mhz) and a GTX 1060
    I noticed the cpu in the bios idles at 40.C. To me it seems quite high. MB temp inside the case is around 22.C.
    What do you think could be causing the issue?

    Cheers.

    No, thats perfectly fine temperature for idle. That said im sure it dont exceeds 70's for max and thats also fine. What causing the issue is memory or psu.

    I reset the bios. So it defulted to 1600 ram.
    And i uninstalled a driver for the asus wireless card. internet still fine though.
    Ran Time Spy benchmark and got around 3300 or so score, so it survived that ok. Not too bad really.
    My daughter is playing minecraft java with mods atm. And so far so good.
    We'll have to wait and see.
    I was wondering if it was the Asus driver. But yeah we'll see.
    Cheers.
