After installing my new motherboard my computer ran perfectly till i loaded up a game and after a few minutes it crashed. I then proceeded to attempt to turn it back on and it would start to boot up but after about 3 seconds it would crash again. I then reinstalled my old motherboard and the computer booted up and ran fine. I have asked for a replacement as I think it must have been a faulty motherboard but I wanted to check if it was caused by something else just encase it happens again. Please advise if you can.
My Pc specks are as follows Gpu - gigabyte 3 fan gtx 760
Cpu - AMD fx 8350 4 ghz (the reason i upgraded my motherboard was to get this running better, it was running at 2.81 ghz on my old motherboard)
Old Motherboard - gigabyte 78lmt-s2p
New Motherboard - gigabyte 970a-DS3p
16 GB of ram (though I doubt that matters)
Psu - Corsair 750W
250 GB SSD

Try reinstalling Windows when getting the new board.
I'll try that but do I only need to wipe the one with my OS on, which is my ssd, and leave the one without my OS as it is?
