I recently bought a new PC that i specialised for use for gaming, here are the specs:
CPU: Intel Core i5 3570K
CPU Cooler: Corsair H60 Water Cooler
Operating System: Microsoft® Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Motherboard: Asus P8B75-M LX
RAM: 8GB Corsair 1600mhz Vengeance (2x4GB)
Hard Drive: 2TB S-ATAIII 6.0Gb/s
Optical Drive: 22x DVD±RW DL S-ATA
Graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 2GB
Sound card: Onboard 7.1 Audio
Case: Xigmatek Asgard
PSU: 600W Xigmatek
Except now whenever I run certain games (GTA IV, Saints Row: The Third, Deus EX: Human Revolution) the screen turns completely red and the computer force restarts.
I should mention that the error only occurs when gameplay is started so it can navigate menus and even ran the opening cutscene to Deus Ex without any problems, only for the red screen to show up 5 seconds in to gameplay.
On restarting windows I'm told that this is the error:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.768.3
Locale ID: 2057
Additional information about the problem:
OS Version: 6_1_7601
Service Pack: 1_0
I was wondering if anyone had any idea for any sort of fix for this, or weather i'll need to replace something, thank you.
Im gonna go out on a limb here and say replace the PSU. Read a few reviews on jonnyguru.com off Xigmatek PSUs and it seems to be hit or miss. Try another high quality PSU in your rig and see if it makes a difference, ill bet it does.
