I have a
XPS 8500 I5
EVGA Geforce GTX 960.
Win 7 64bit
The system runs great. I read the forums and saw the motherboard can handle an i7 3770. I picked up this processor and installed it yesterday.
The pc was able to see see it and I though all was well until I went to play a game. The game could barely start and the processor was getting loud. I checked my GPU temp and it was at 35 which tells me the processor was trying to handle the graphics and not the graphics card.
Any ideas on what I can do to resolve this issue?
I questioned the quality of the thermal paste so I ordered Artic MX-4 paste.
Do I need to make any changes to the bios? They are up to date, just want to make sure all setting are correct.
