Hi my system specs are:
Asus Rampage II Extreme
I7 email@example.com(stock clocks)
2xSapphire HD4870 2Gb Vapor-X edition
2x25cm led Fans
Thermaltake V1 CPU Cooler
and heres the big question will my Thermaltake 700W toughpower PSU support all those?
i already tested it on i7 920 everything worked fine...but when i installed the 960(without formatting) after i start any game the pc restarts alone...PLZ Quick Answer!!!
i dno whats wrg man im paniking...after i disabled crossfire the computer didnt restart do u think its a cable management issue? it happened to me once in a game called the saboteur...at the end it was a PCI-E Cable issue...what do u think? does the I7 960 consume more power than the I7 920?
well ive only seen shutdowns like that due to excess heat (typically video). ive read that some boards only allow the second video card to run at 8x instead of 16x (older boards).....so perhaps switching the cards around did in fact do something.
every piece of hardware is not the same....you know that. so maybe one of the cards was running too hot in one slot and changing it fixed that.
