Power going out randomly?

Recommended Posts

Guest Jakalwarrior

Only happens when im playing WoW. My temps are fine and sometimes I get to play for 10 minutes, sometimes a few hours. Then WHAM it powers down like I unplugged it. Any ideas?

Tried downlocking, tried upping voltages, etc...

I don't play anything else except D2 lol. It wasnt doing this in my old ASrock board though. I might just go back to it.

 

Its 24 hours prime and memtest stable.

Check and see if your PSU fan is actually running. That happened to me a while back and I couldn't figure it out for the life of me, turned out my 120mm PSU fan died and wasn't pushing any air.

do you have your CPU temp shutdown activated in your BIOS maybe its set too low.

PSU fan is running (why I had to replace my last one too, after it went out it burned up). Bios shutdown temp is set as high as possible (no off setting) and the cpu never goes over 50-55. Im wondering if maybe the temp sensor is messed up and sometimes jumps up real high and makes it shut down. Cant disable the auto shutdown though :/

 

I also tried unplugging the on switch. No help there either.

Did you do a reinstall of the OS after you switched from the Asrock to the DFI?

No didnt reinstall, I cleared out all the drivers and repaired.

Psu im not sure. I just woke up and cant remember how many pins a regular one has but its one of the new ones with a lot of connections on the thing and some of them break off for old mobos.

*edit* I take that back. It does the same thing at all stock settings.
