I believe this applies to you too. Just because it says so doesn't mean it really can.
Thanks, I figured this was happening.

Computer powers down suddenly with no increase in temp apparently. VCore at 1.4 and NB 1.2 at 2000MHz.
Some ASRock boards shut down to prevent VRMs from overheating and failure, as OCP (overcurrent protection). This is the case; a Phenom II x2 unlocked to x4 will take on much higher TDP & power consumption, enough to overload some VRMs. Since your VRM is a 3+1 power phase with low overall quality, I can understand how the board would overload and shut down to protect itself. You should remain at two cores unless able to get a better motherboard. If you don't even know what VRMs are and why they are important, refer to the link in my sig "About VRMs & MOSFETs".

Thanks everyone. I believe my question was answered. I'm almost 100% sure my budget 3+1 power phase unheatsinked VRM mobo is to blame. LOL!

Actually that it's shutting down and preventing itself from blowing up or otherwise catastrophically failing is a very good thing smile.gif
There have been two VRM fail cases today, I don't want a third

System powers down = PSU problem. Or other power delivery devices.

The PSU should be enough for this hardware, I'd be more willing to bet on the VRMs

If you are looking for a cheaper way out, get yourself some Enzotech C1 or C10 heatsinks like i got, dropped my VRM and mosfet temps by about 8C plus with my getto cooling fan on them they rarely get up past 45c under load not, before it was more like 60c. But yea more than likely it's the OCP protection kicking in, that psu is a good unit and can power that rig, most mainstream/mid-high end systems only need like a 500-600w unit (again, a quality unit)

Thanks. Ok, here is my motherboard...

Could you (or anyone) use MS Paint or whatever and circle where I'm supposed to stick the heatsinks and post it here? I studied electronics so I'm not a total noob, but I would appreciate help on this one biggrin.gif
