Issue with first build Tags: Build Systems Last response: May 23, 2011 3:30 AM in Systems Share uggeh May 18, 2011 2:40:49 AM Hey guys, I recently built my first PC, everything seems to be working fine until I put the GPU under load. Whenever I play games or watch movies after about 5-10 minutes it suddenly crashes. I have tried installing the latest drivers, but I am not sure where to go from here. Here's my Build: Intel i5-2500k Asus P8P67 PRO G.Skill 8gb (2x4gb) MSI GeForce 560 ti Twin Frozr Corsair 650TX Samsung Spinpoint F3 1tb NZXT Phantom Thanks for the help.

I believe there is a guide somewhere on this forum... | Report abuse mlcaouette May 18, 2011 3:51:40 AM Yeah you should check PSU and also test your Ram with memtest86. Check your temps for M/B, CPU, and video card while under load as well. | Report abuse uggeh May 23, 2011 3:30:23 AM Alright, sorry for the late reply, was out of town for a few days. I ran memtest86 and everything came out OK. I also checked the temps: CPU: Topped out at 51°C Video Card: 64°C Motherboard: 31°C Also, I can watch You Tube videos without a problem until I make them full screen, at which point the computer resets. Not sure if this matters but the resolution of my monitor is 1920x1080. Thanks Again. Edit: Also I was unable to find a way to test my PSU. Except for the paper clip method, which seemed more of a way to see if a PSU worked prior to an install, but I could be wrong. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Systems>Issue with first build> Related ressources: ForumFirst time build , unknown issue preventing proper boot up ForumFirst Build , Power Issue ?
