Did you reset your mobo BIOS settings? I've gotten into trouble tweaking the BIOS.

It's the PSU my friend, I had one eXtreme Power Plus of 600W and it burned within 3 months, and I had the same problem you show in your video, my PC only started the fan coolers and nothing else, even the power button led didn't turn on, I thought it was the motherboard at first, but then I tried the generic PSU of an old PC I had and everything worked like a charm, now I only buy Corsair and Thermaltake stuff, Cooler Master never again!!!

Try first your Rig, I mean, stable: CPU, RAM, PSU
Turn on the PC but won't boot into SO, enter bios or pause boot and wait for PC crash.
If it still powered, then test CPU, NO-OC, Low-END VGA if possible, and checking temps.
If test is sucess, then it should be the PSU, Carefully Oc the CPU, GPU, and stress the PSU.
If still working, then check PSU power Cable. tongue.gif!
Loveya Chitti Broski. :3

Brotha'. BIOS test: failed, temps between 30-50 (processor), 40-45 (low end gpu); passed. OC'd cpu, gpu, ran Prime95 and stressed for about 2 hours, no fail. Few hours later, happened again. Tried with 2 PSU cables, it happens.

Do you have another PSU to test?

Nope, i cant afford another one lol..

4+1, my mistake.... VRMs are probably not the issue

Good to know that.

Maybe just cause of the sudden shutdown.. but idk, PC is still on, everything inside case is still working.. idk if it is the PSU..

Yep, i did a total reset of everything when removed the battery, and my mobo has a RESET CMOS button in the back, pressed it too.

Okay here's what i'm trying now
Removed 4-pin cable.

700

And from this other part, i removed a 4-pin too.

700

Seems to be working now, 7 hours straight and counting.

BTW, what happens if i leave it like that? without those 4-pin connectors? What are they for?
post #16 of 27
The 4-pin (20+4 pin) on a PSU -> motherboard connection is for the PCI-E stuff. You will not be able to use a PCI-E video card without it.

Aside PSU, RAM might be some electrical connection - wires, mobo capacitors etc - that disconnects due to dilatation when the connection gets warm.

Because it so often is the problem. And so many people will RMA everything in their new system before they'll try another PSU.

Open Event Viewer and check for errors. Things like this are usually either motherboard or PSU, but I've had it caused by a DVD burner that was going bad. Found that in event viewer in fact.

Isn't the 4-pin for CPU?

Try and put some load on it. See what happens. Run Furmark or OCCT GPU tests. wink.gif
