After my old Geforce 9500 GT died out on me, I bought a new ASUS GT 440, the fanless one. Everything works beautifully on idle, however, once I begin playing WoW or GW2, I get a black out screen, as though the monitor has lost connection. Audio either keeps going or spazzes out. I've triple and qudrple checked drivers and am positive that is not the issue, and found that people were having the same problem as I am, concluding the problem lay with an under-powered psu. However, I have a 650w psu, which would seem to suffice. Can anyone help?
Here's my specs if you need them:
PSU - Antec EarthWatts EA650 650W
CPU - Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 Wolfdale 3.16GHz
GPU - ASUS ENGT440 DC GeForce GT 440
RAM - OCZ Reaper HPC 2GB (2x1GB) DDR3
MoBo - GIGABYTE GA-EP45T-UD3P LGA 775
rethink your air flow in your case, can cables be better managed? fans repositioned? undo those spare tabs on the i/o panel? how about going cover-less on the case? But ya a dedicated fan would be ideal.
Airflow right now is almost as good as it can get, I have a Raidmax Smilodon with only one fan out. I'll probably just replace that fan and get a dedicated one too, if there's room. Thanks for the tips guys, you were a lot of help
