    Computer turned off


      I've got this configuration

      CPU AMD FX8370 4 GHz

      Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 R5

      Kingsot HyperX Fury 2x8 GB 1866 MHz

      Gigabyte R9 390 G1 GAMING 8GB GDDR5

      SSD Patriot Blaze 120 GB

      PSU Corsair Builder Series CX750M, 750 W

      Case Zalman Z11 Neo


      While playing Ashes of Singularity after about 45 mins the whole PC just turned-off, so I decided tu run HeavyLoad to see temperatures while uner stress so this is result:


      Is the high temperature cause of this or something else? Are this normal values or not?

          The maximum operating temperature for FX series processors is 61°C. Your cooling methods are insufficient.

            You CPU is seriously overheated at 68-69C If you have an AMD boxed CPU with HSF then it's likely not mounted correctly or the CPU fan is not running at full speed. You can check the mobo BIOS and adjust the CPU and other case fan speeds to 100% or "high" or "maximum" depending on what term your mobo BIOS uses. You definitely need to keep your CPU at or below 61C.
