I have recently installed a new motherboard and processor, here are my new system specs:
Desktop Board DX58SO2 -Motherboard
Nvidia GTS 250 -Graphics card
APCF power, Max600w huntkey - PSU, what it says on the box
2x 2gb DDR3 Kensington RAM
My pc runs furmark and Prime-95 fine for hours, but as soon as I start a game, the PC reboots itself. This happens on Heroes of Newerth, League of Legends, Dead Island, Deus Ex and TF2. Automatic restart is disabled and I have run memtest86, but when i came back to check it after night, the screen was garbled with weird symbols. Do I have bad ram?
Run Memtest86+ in person not unattended. http://www.memtest.org/
If you have faulty ram you'll know very quickly within 30mins.
The errors will be displayed in red.
Don't worry about your psu just yet.
Huntkey is a well-known brand outside of North America.
If your ram is ok i suspect your graphics drivers are to blame.
Remove the driver suite in control panel add/remove
Download DriverSweeper and run in safe mode. http://phyxion.net/Driver-Sweeper/Driver-Sweeper/Versio...
Tick off Nvidia display and analyze/clean those files.
Reboot normal and download latest drivers for your gpu and install them as ADMIN.
My power supply is new, got it with my mobo, are you guys sure it may be the problem? The previous reading was in error, the rails are all working fine according to Intel extreme tuning utility. Just got some new ram but the crashes still occur. Definite PSU problem?
