Or the PSU is such a piece of crap that when you get to Windows, the load that places on it becomes unbearable and it shuts off immediately.
As much as we all believe here that generic PSUs are the worst things in the world, I have many of them from OEM systems and they work just fine and if his was working and he doesn't smell smoke, I assume it is still running fine for now. Maybe it will die in only 6 months, maybe Furmark will have his PSU light the whole house on fire but for now it seems okay.
|But it could be the CPU since i play a lot of games and had it overclocked before by 15% which failed to work properly and gave me blue screens to i had to declock.|
