Hi. I’m doing some 4K screenshots (by the help of DSR) since months, what you can see on my deviantART account. But since some days, when I set to 4K and go underwater, my PC is taking a crap and resets (tested in gm_abstraction_extended). It also happened while I played The Sims 3 (before I put a FPS limiter in) and when I play Miitomo on BlueStacks for a long time.
Here’s some of my specs:
AMD FX™-8320 Eight-Core Processor - 3.50 GHz
8 GB RAM
Windows 7 Home Premium (64 bit)
1 TB HDD
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 - 4 GB
1680x1050 native resolution (I don’t have a better monitor right now)
PSU unit: Corsair VS550
Motherboard: ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. - M5A97 R2.0
I got the computer on the start of this year from my deceased brother. He bought this computer on Mifcom.de on the start of 2016. It was probaly never used for a year until I got it, so it may be dusty. I also played The Sims 3 alot on the computer since months and I limited the FPS of that game to 30 just some days ago. I heard that The Sims 3 rapes graphics cards. And on my GMod, there are over 900 addons (yes, call me crazy) and notice some graphical glitches when I use my Physgun: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1111535717
Can somebody help me? Is one of the things I mentioned above the reason for the sudden restarts?
