  1. Check your temps
  2. Could be a defective PSU. Do you have another one to test with? You are describing the typical too small, or failing PSU symptoms. It's obviously not too small. But there could be other reasons, too. Loose connection that disconnects when the system heats up. Check the 24 pin and 8 pin MB headers. Sometimes they don't go in far enough to clip the latch. Then they back out under heat/load.

    A failing MB could be the problem too, but hard to diagnose.
  3. i have done that ran furmark and the gpu held at 65C and then i ran prime95 and my cpu was at 50cish
  4. ya that was my first thought so i swapped out my psu, but it didnt help, i reinstalled windows
  5. Hi,

    What games are you playing, does it happen in all games ?
  6. League it's fine and stable, it ran star citizen for about 4 hours no problem. but when i would try to play Archage(it restarts in about 5-10 min) , before i re-installed windows to switch my raid config. im downloading star citizen right now to see it still works.
  7. i have read alot of people having this problem, but not really any clear fixes, so far i have tryed new and older drivers. replaced my psu. i have switched to down to gen 2 from gen 3 on the port.
