Couple problems I've been having lately out of the blue. - Page 2

Alright so. Recently started playing Starcraft 2 again and Ive been notice several problems lately that I cant even understand why its happening.

First problem occurred when I started my computer one day. I pressed the power button on my comp, and before I could press the power button on my monitor, the beep came for boot, then the comp turned off, and turned back on and loaded properly.

Next problem was when I was playing SC2 my screen would flicker a little, minimize, restore, and my GPU fans would turn to very low speed, but my overclocks were staying the same. Like 900/2050. Just my fans would reset. The game would then continue to run properly. It seemed like it crashed my overclock, but only the screen flickered a little then my fans turned down. The game never crashed and the drivers never stopped responding.

Third issue which i encountered today was my computer froze on the Welcome screen for windows 7 and when I restarted it, it froze again while it was on my desktop. I'm not sure why this is happening. I usually get BSOD, but I did a 12 hour stable run on prime 95 blend. I'm confused. I'm not currently running the comp, playing SC2 properly, no freezes or crashes or anything.

Seems like all my problems are very oddly timed and periodic. Random times, random places, weird. I'm not sure where these problems are stemming from. BTW, my video overclock settings are stable as well. Ran heaven for 45 mins, OCCT for 1 hour, many many many 3dmarks, BF3 for like 40 hours, and SC2 for many hours. Everything seems stable, just odd that some of these things are happening.

Please any knowledge that you can provide as to why this is all happening to me would be great.

HMMMMMM LAST THOUGHT... My power supply. Ive got the ****test PSU ever. the CM GX 750. Could this be the issue? Hmmmmm

EDIT: Had the comp for about a month or two now. Seems like it could be the motherboard or PSU.. Not sure. REALLY need some help please.
First: Unstable CPU Overclock (Same thing happened to me, Stock settings stopped it)

Second: Unstable GPU Overclock (Educated Guess)

Third: Dying Hard Drive (Random Freezes happened to me as well, Ended up being a failing hard drive)

It does seem that the one you have is a reference PCb 570 which does have the VRM issue. Unfortunatly I'm not so familiar with the whole 570 issue so can't really say if that overclock is hurting it or not, maybe someone else can comment, however I woudl suggest that you roll back to the 266.58 or 266.66 driver when you get a chance and check whether or not that fixes te problem.

Here's memtest: http://www.memtest.org/

Be sure to check your HDD for errors aswell.

As I said, it could be the PSU fan rattling which isn't really a big deal apart from the sound.

I dont get how its unstable overclock when I ran it for 12 hours prime95 blend 90% ram usage.

I dont get how its an unstable overclock when I ran BF3 for over 40 hours, SC2 for prolly about 15 hours, OCCT for an hour, heaven for 45 mins, 3Dmark for like 10 times.

The Hard Drive could be the issue. Ive never messed with it, this hard drive and the CD drive were the only two things I havnt upgraded. I had these in my old computer, which was about 5 years old.

I'm not saying you should understand it, (I don't even), but removing the overclock on the CPU fixed it for me. It was fine once Windows loaded, it was just the boot loop that occured with me.

Your 570 is a reference one and likely with poor VRMs. Hence the "Educated Guess".

Your hard drive is most likely the culprit for the freezing then.

What did it fix? The double boot thinggy? The freezing? Or the Starcraft 2 glitch thing?

EDIT: The boot up thing only happened once. Also, so you're saying I cant overclock my CPU at all? I have to keep it stock?

Just to ask, did you try pulling all connections and re-plugging them in? I've seen this happen many times over the years of trouble shooting issues. Pull your ram, cpu power, 24pin power, pci-e video connectors, and if the power supply is modular, those too. Not saying it's the issue, but always good to check. It has fixed a few pc's that I was stumped on.

It fixed the boot loop. If you lower the over clock, it might fix it. I just went back to stock because the power is useless unless benchmarking.

Well then that is an issue. There isnt a point of hiding it. It means your/my CPU cant overclock. WHich would mean if we NEED the power we couldnt use it? That sounds rather dumb to just cover up an issue like that.

Havn't tried that at all. Maybe I'll take a bit to rewire/manage my wires and check for anything loose or in the way of the fans.

EDIT: Its also not something that is "broken" necessarily. It happened once with the boot loop, has never happened before. So lowering my overclock or keeping it the same it may never happen again or may happen months from now. How could I know its from the overclock. It seems weird that it would only happen once if it was my overclock. And its not like it happened after I raised my overclocks. Ive been running these clocks for a while now. I dunno...

I highly doubt it's the CPU that's unstable, like I said, check the gpu and the driver, run memetst and check HDD for error's.

Download the one in red and burn the iso on a cd and change boot priority to the cd and it'll load it up automatically. Make sure you run it for atleast 6hours and that the memory is at stock or whatever you had your stable settings at.

If it happend once then it's nothing to worry about, it's probably a cold boot.
