This is my first post, hello to all.
I recently put the below system together, but have had issues of random shutdowns.
DFI Lanparty UT SLI-DR Expert
Opteron 170 (LCB9E 0652 WPMW) w/Swiftech Apogee GT
2gb PC3200 OCZ EL Platinum
2 x WD1600AAJS hd's (main and pagefile/storage)
eVGA 8800GTX w/EK 8800GTX water block
Lite-On SH-A167S DVD+/-DL
Thermaltake Tough Power 750
Thermaltake Armor (modded)
After setting this system up I installed WinXP SP2 without any issues. I then proceeded to install some applications but received errors. CPU and GPU are running at stock settings, ram is 126.96.36.199/2T. The CPU core temps are 30°/40° respectively, which seems a bit odd for there to be a full 10° difference between them.
I installed Sisoft Sandra and when I go to get information on the mobo or GPU etc the system shuts down. I don't receive a BSOD or any board leds or alarms, the PSU cuts out and the system just powers off. I get a SidebySide error on Event Viewer, which has to do with some possible corrupt/error'd files in Sisoft Sandra.
So far I ran memtest on both memory modules for 8+ hrs without errors. My next step is to swap in a working GPU and processor and see if either of these components are faulty. If all these test fine it would seem the mobo is working and not faulty.
I have also had the system lockup after staying on for more then 12 hrs. I would leave the PC running with no apps opened and after returning later in the day the system would be locked up. I would have to hard boot the box, I was unable to ctl/alt/del or get back to the desktop.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
