Is my PSU kicking the bucket?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
While playing BF3 and Crysis 2 I get intermittent reboots w/no bugchecks or hanging. It's like I just hit the power button in the middle of the game. I ran p95 for 28hrs with no errors or BSOD on my 4Ghz w/HT overclock. So I ran memtest last night for 10hrs/12passes and no errors. I checked HW monitor ( I know its not very reliable compared to a meter) and it sits at 11.76 on the 12v rail. I don't have a volt meter or another power supply to test with. I'm confused because I can run Metro 2033 and STALKER for hours without any problems. Event viewer gives me the Kernal-power event ID 41, as well as Audit events have been dropped by the transport 0, as well as A fatal hardware error has occurred.Log Name: System

Try running a GPU stress test like OCCT, I think prime is more for the CPU (could be wrong). You need to stress the CPU and GPU at the same time to simulate being in BF3. Metro is getting a little old and I don't know what type of demand there is from the CPU in that game I know it like GPUs.
On a side note BF3 is still buggy as all hell, so if it's only that game and no other I would look for fixes in teh community forums.

Which test am I supposed to perform? The GPU or PSU test or both? Should I leave the resolution at default? Sorry I never used OCCT. Oh and how do i get it to utilize both GPUs? I tried full screen and default and it is only using one GPU.

I had to download OCCT 4.1.0. Apparently the previous version wasn't letting me utilize both GPUs. So I ran the PSU test for an hour without errors. This test made everything generate more heat than BF3 and Crysis 2. I'm beginning to think these two games specifically don't like my computer. Any other suggestions? Maybe something as simple as re installing my GPU drivers? Or rolling back to previous versions and testing?
