Continuation CPU

  podlod 07:47 10 Jul 2010

Hi, as promised I said I would return with my results. I have had an upgraded Aero cool fan for my CPU, and obviously new thermal paste, and he has completed a burn in test and he assured me everything is working ok. I tested the CPU temp after 3 hours of play and it did not rise above 42C which is a good thing, but still after playing a game for approx 3hours, the graphic sound and the characters speech still freezes for a split second, yet the graphics are perfect. I am still trying to narrow this prob down but obviously you will I hope solve the prob? please.

Hi Mat, The games are Empire/Napoleonic Total Wars, and from a CD, and as you know cannot be played unless you have Steam which is what I have through no choice!

Yep, i'm aware of that, have you tried downloading the latest version of the steam platform

It may be a game issue rather than your PC...
