PC cutting off

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi, I built a new system yesterday and I'm having problems with it cutting off. I was looking forward to exploring the world of overclocking as well.

As it stands I have not tried overclocking it...

MSI P67A-GD53 (B3)
i5-2500k
Corsair XMS 3 PC3 - 12800
Be Quiet! Dark Rock Advanced
Gainward GTX 570 Phantom
Antec High Current Pro HCP-750
Asus Xonar DX
Windows 7 x64 Ultimate

When I was installing Windows updates the system cut off. Since then I have managed to install all the updates and it runs fine when Im on the net and listen to music.

When I run a stress test in FurMark the computer cuts off as soon as it starts. Also tried to play Crysis 2 but again the system cuts as the actual game play is loading.

Also ran Prime95 stress test and memtest-86 both of which didn't have any problems. I used a PSU tester to check PSU and that got the all clear.

I turned off automatic restart but I dont get a blue screen, just a click then system losing power and then restarts its self.

I tried running the system with my old GTS 250 and everything runs fine including Crysis 2 and Furmark. Some one mentioned it sounds like a power issue, I take it the GTS 250 would draw less power than the GFX 570? I don't want to just jump to the conclusion it's the GFX 570 and send it back when it could be something else.

Anyone have any ideas, thanks.

What do you mean it cuts off? Does the screen turn pitchblack and resume back into windows and says some type of NVidia driver error? If so you may have an unstable voltage or clock speed or temperatures got to high on your graphics card and I would recommend using MSI Afterburner to modify your voltage, clock speeds, and fan speed.

Here is a link to MSI Afterburner:

There is a click(same click when you first press the power button and when you do a shut down) and then the whole system loses power. Then the click again and the system reboots. No error messages.

Are you using XMP profiles or anything? Have you tried clearing the CMOS?
