Question about Computers & Internet
I ocassionally have the same problem, as far as I know, on most games a single core will run the game as opposed to all 3 working in concert. This is espeically true for older games. This is caused by overheating on a single core. If you are overclocking, then you will want to clock it back down to default levels or buying a larger heat sink. If you are not overclocking, then it could be a problem with power usage i.e. you do not have a large enough power supply. If this is the case, then detaching any extra devices would temporarily solve this problem, however, a power supply that can hold more watts is the only permanent solution. There are a few other reasons why this could be happening, but less likely.
