First build, probably missing something obvious. Fully built and installed (using said computer currently). In the middle of Youtube, Minecraft, checking email (random) will freeze up and then restart.
I have a few hunches on what it might be. I've tried updating the GPU and cooling. Using a Corsair Liquid CPU Cooler, had to overwrite the CPU fan in the bios to be able to start. Still shows up as a cooling fan and keeps the temp down but I've been setting manually and have reached a high of maybe 30C. Is there some software to mitigate this better that I haven't found yet? Is it possible that my CPU is just freaking out thinking that it can't control its own temperature and restarting? Or am I missing something much more basic since this is my first build?
