bad PSU? - Page 2

post #11 of 18
I had an issue like this a few weeks ago after upgrading from a 460 to a 570. After mine shut down I removed the side panel and the PSU was very very warm. A lot warmer than usual and the PC would not start back until it cooled down. Check to see if your PSU is getting hot when this happens. The top of my case got hot also. You could tell it was way over normal temps just by feeling of it. I popped the 460 back in til I could grab a new PSU a few days later. No problems since.

Vizor,

Software voltage readouts are just this side of utterly useless; get a cheap multimeter and test if you really want to know where things stand.

With that said, having a shoddy PSU is a surefire way to destroy the rest of your components. For only $25 (yes, that's right...$25), you can pick up a Corsair CX430v2 that will provide quality power for your setup: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139026

i tested my power supply while running prime95, all the power on the main 24 pin is

Orange: 3.3v is 3.45v
Yellow: 12v is 11.98v
red: 5v is 5.66v

so what else can cause the computer to shut down fully my cpu is not overheating is sitting around 40C and video is around 45-50C

If I were you, I'd take the side panel off and make 100% sure all of the PSU connectors are solidly in place to everything they're connected to (mobo, hdd/ssd, gpu, etc). I had problems with my monitors going out a few weeks ago, opened up my case, and realized I hadn't plugged the connectors all the way into my 580

EDIT: Also, check the screws that attach your mobo to your case. If they're too tight/don't have the rubber bushings, it can cause your problem as well.

If it were me, and I did these things, and still had the problem, I'd get a new PSU.
