Okay so I am going to do a slight introduction. Hello I am Crispy how are you... Okay now that thats out of the way I got an issue that I hope someone out there might know the answer to or at least steer me in the right direction. I just upgraded my pc to custom built Parts will be listed below. I have built pcs before but decided to go all out on this one. I had just finished installing my new cpu cooler after removing the stock cooler and switching it out for a antec 650 khuler. Placed my artic silver 5 on the cpu and installed cooler with no issues. hooked the psu up and started her up. all seemed fine logged into the bios to monitor her temp for 20 or s0 mins. Never went past 45C so after that test decided to boot windows. installed some drivers for video and windows and mother board. Now came the real test. I logged into my game (Startrek online) Maxed the graphics out looked beautiful. Played for about 10 mins just flying around looking at the nice display when poof everything shut down. Now im worried that my cpu had blown but it seems fine. I disconnected everything and started hooking it back up. one by one doing tests comp boots as long as my psu is not connected to the graphics card when i connect it to the graphics card it will not boot. Now since I found a start to my issue I do not know where to go from there or what even caused it. I cant tell if i fried it out by too much strain on it or if my cooler was not attached properly or if it did any damage to my motherboard or if my motherboard was the problem to begin with and fried the graphics card its all up in the air. Below is a list of equipment my system is running. if anyone might have the slightest clue on whats going on I would greatly appreciate knowing.
Here are the specs of my new rig if i could give more detail I would but I can not even get into the system right now waiting on an RMA from newegg for graphics card.
I just copied my order from newegg since I can not get into the system right now for deeper info.
