Hi there,

I am not sure if this is a place to post my questions.

I just built a computer for gaming purpose. I'd built computers myself many times. However, this new computer is the only one giving me so much trouble. .

If I just watched movies, web surfing, my computer would work fine. However, it would keep reboot itself like every 5 or 10 min when I played the game, Everyquest2. I did a bit research on this issue. Some people said it might relate to PSU. So that I purchased
IN WIN COMMANDER IRP-COM1200 1200W ATX 12V 2.3 / EPS 12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active
When I installed it, it couldn't even boot up my system. So I changed to my original PSU, it couldn't boot up the system also. I kept swap between these 2 PSUs to try to boot up my computer. For some reasones, my original could finally boot up after 4 hours tries.

So my questions are
1. Why would my new computer keep reboot itself when I played the game, not enough power (I don't do any overclocking on any thing)? Anyway to fix it?
2. Why wouldn't my original PSU boot up the computer when I installed it properly?

Any advice will be appreciated.

Thank you for you time.

My computer is
AUS P6T V2
i7 920 2.66 (no overclocking)
OCZ Platinum 12GB 1600 MHz(6x2048)
ASUS DVD +/- RW 20x
Seagate 1TB Serial ATA HD 7200/32MB/SATA-3G
ULTRA X3 850W PSU
3 * 14mm case fans
1 webcam
Windows Vista Home Prem 64-bit DSP OEM DVD (automatic restart is unchecked)
Avast! 4.8 Home edition (have latest virus def. and no virus found)
(not many softwares installed)Hi there,

I am not sure if this is a place to post my questions.

I just built a computer very similar to Sweetsx for gaming purpose. I'd built computers myself many times. However, this new computer is the only one giving me so much trouble. .

If I just watched movies, web surfing, my computer would work fine. However, it would keep reboot itself like every 5 or 10 min when I played the game, Everyquest2. I did a bit research on this issue. Some people said it might relate to PSU. So that I purchased
IN WIN COMMANDER IRP-COM1200 1200W ATX 12V 2.3 / EPS 12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active
When I installed it, it couldn't even boot up my system. So I changed to my original PSU, it couldn't boot up the system also. I kept swap between these 2 PSUs to try to boot up my computer. The funny things was that even I unpluged DVDrw/all case fans/ no USBs/single monitor at all, I couldn't even boot up my computer.For some reasones, my original could finally boot up after 4 hours tries.

I also usedd ASUS PC prob to check CPU's temp and fans speed.
CPU temp, watching movies, surfing internet / gaming : 45 : 56 centigrade degree ( is 56 too high?)
CPU fan speed : ~2.3 K rpm
Case fans speed : ~1.2 K rpm
Vcore : 1.2
12V : 12.08
Video card temp : watching movies, surfing internet / gaming : 42 : 57 centigrade degree ( is 57 too high?)

So my questions are
1. Why would my new computer keep reboot itself when I played the game, not enough power (I don't do any overclocking on any thing)? Anyway to fix it?
2. Why wouldn't my original PSU boot up the computer when I installed it properly?
3. Is there a log file to check what process it did last and crush.

Any advice will be appreciated.

Well, your PSU's rating should be enough for your components, even if you did overclocking. Can you try another PSU (borrow one from a friend)? I think the PSU you're using now is broken.

It sounds like a power issue, but it might be a RAM problem. 6 DIMM's can be tough to keep stable. Did you try manually setting your memory voltage?
