PC shuts off every 10-30 minutes - Page 4

post #31 of 59
It doesn't matter... only the application matters... Like my setup below, I chose a good power supply for my build type. Yes, name brand is reccomened and will work the best. Like I said it depends how you use it.

Very misleading. A PSU is THE most important component in a build. If it blows, it may take your other parts with it. Just today, a fellow OCN member had his generic PSU crap out on him and it fried his SSD which cost him a year's worth of valuable data.

Cause that guy was not using his head... you dont put a Honda Civic engine in a Mabach... My point is that you put a honda civic engine in a freaking honda lol.

Now, if I build a computer that only crunches numbers and I am never going to use it for anything else but that function then Yes I was an skimp out and pick up that Staples PSU. That same PSU WILL NOT go in my current PC.

Not always though. I had a Core 2 Duo E4500 system which was just used for basic editing. Had a 500W generic PSU and within a few months the thing fizzled out and took the mobo with it. The system was never under any sort of load.

Okay so I'm back again. My PC is still doing this.

It's completely random, sometimes it'll stay on all day, sometimes it'll turn off before windows loads, sometimes it'll turn off after 15-20 minutes. It seems to turn off whenever I need it the most redface.gif

Today, it wont even start. The fans will spin a 1/4 turn and thats it. I have to unplug or turn off the power supply and then wait for the light on my motherboard to turn off, and then switch power back on for it to try to start again. All it will do is spin the fans a 1/4 turn.

I thought maybe it was a grounding issue so I took the parts out of the case and set them on some cardboard. Same thing.

The PSU in my computer is good for sure. What do you think...motherboard dead?

It's not entirely about the brand that defines the quality of a PSU. Some brands can change. i.e. Corsair giving us the new generation CX product to replace the CX 400 which was quite a step back... or Rosewill starting to make some seriously decent PSUs.  What counts is the internals of the PSU - this article can help us figure that out.  The internal components are what define a PSU's build quality. But I'm not saying that a brand name is not a good reference for PSU choices; brands usually stick to the same internal components companies for the same PSU lines.

I think it's a little bit of luck too, I had a 600W OCZ PSU, I'd had it 6 weeks and it blew up and took my hard drive with it. Got an RMA, that one blew up too, taking nothing with it this time luckily, so I found my old Pentium 4 gaming rig, took the generic non brand PSU out of that, and it's been in this PC ever since.
Obviously I'd recommend branded ones, but you've got to check reviews, because some are just useless.
