Hello guys, few days ago my pc suddenly shut down while i playing game. after that the computer very hardly to start up. I pull out the atx power pin. there is a pin been burned and rip through. so i tried a new psu. now the computer starts normal. But it still will shut down if i play over 30mins game. the cpu and gpu temperature are very low im using liquid cooling. cpu less than 50C GPU less than 60C. then I touched the back of the gpu and the motherboard heatsink. they are extreme high when i opened the game. anyone know why? thanks guys.
my pc: i7 980x gtx580 3gb sli motherboard: asus p6x58d-e cpu cooler: corsair h100. windows7 gpu driver 275.73
Do you have all the proper pwr to the MOBO? The 24 pin plug has been augmented with a 4,6 or 8 pin suplimental pwr to the MOBO on most new boards not to metion the power to the video card. Overheating can be caused by under supplying of power.
Though I'm not a fanboy of OCZ it's more than adequate for up to 2 GTX 580's; OCZ's are notorious for coil whine.
For now, run as I mentioned AIDA64 or Prime95, also have running Real Temp (CPU) and HWMonitor (MOBO and GPU(s)). I'm trying to separate the GPU out of the equation with stressing. If the Temps are getting high then I'd evaluate air flow, I prefer negative pressure in the case and front to rear/top out.
Q - What case?
Q - Are you OC'ing either the CPU and/or GPU(s)?
