I am not sure this is the appropriate forum.
My situation is:
I have installed the game last night. It constantly blue screen.
error code determined it was memory problem. So I raised the voltage until it is stable.
No more blue screen during game play afterward. I normally shut the PC down. This is Day 1.
I start FFXIV right away and played continuously 6hrs. No blue screen at all. CPU never goes over 55'C while GPU never goes over 68'C. However, CPU fan(stock) went to 5kRPM, so it was really noisy. I shut down the PC for dinner, and afterward it wont boot again. (no POST beep, no visual)
I reset the CMOS. No effect
Changed different RAM and different slot. No effect, but it would beep when there is no RAM
I even reseated the CPU, still no effect.
From above record I see no possibility of overheat, and if overvolt the RAM then the other RAM should have worked.
So I am really troubled at what really happened to my PC, after only 10 hrs of game play.
CPU: PhenomIIx4 955
MB: ASUSM4A785TD-V EVO 785G
RAM:PATRIOT 2x2GB DDR3 PGV34G1333ELK
PSU: CoolerMaster 600W
GPU: MSI R5830
Thanks for your attention.
