Computer randomly shuts off during high power load? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Idk how it went up to that temp with the watercooling. I checked that out during the original installation and I do have the in-flow going into the inlet on the block. I've opened the block before to see if there was any blockage and there wasn't any problems that I could see. I reassembled the block the same way that I opened it. It could possibly be something to do with the sprayer part within the block. It could be put on backwards by the factory or something...idk. But I guess you gotta consider that IvyBridge runs pretty hot and I had the cpu overclocked to 4.6 Ghz with 1.31 V. :-/[/quote]

I did some research and ivy bridge's max temp operation is 105 so cpu shouldn't be the problem. You might as well just rma the psu. Corsair has the best customer service in my experience and it shouldn't take too long.

Yet another vote for PSU.

Well the problem with RMAing the PSU is that I sleeved the cables (with MDPC-X nonetheless.....). I'm certain that my warranty is void since I had to open the casing to sleeve the motherboard and cpu power cables.

At this point, I'm going to just purchase a new PSU. I have some spare cash anyway atm and it wouldn't hurt to upgrade to a high wattage to futureproof the computer a bit to maybe allow another 690 if I ever want one in the future. This time I won't be sleeving though. The warranty seems more valuable to me than the sleeving's visual enhancements. I should maybe get a fully modular psu if I ever want to sleeve again so that I don't have to open the casing of the psu to fully sleeve the cables. I think I'm going to just buy a HX850 because part of this issue is more-than-likely user error due to me possibly switching a couple of wires during the sleeving. With a 7 year warranty and plenty of amperage to supply my graphics card, I should be good.

I'll be sure to let everyone know if the new power supply install works in resolving my issues. I really hope it does.....

Update: So I got my new PSU a couple of days ago and I installed it (HX850). Everything is installed and all cables are correctly connected and in place. So far, it seems that the computer is performing fantastically. I have yet to have any unexpected shutdowns like before.

I must have messed up somewhere when I was sleeving the cables on the HX750. I guess practice makes perfect but I won't be trying to sleeve any time soon (until I get a better rate of disposable income).

On a side note, I also overclocked the cpu to 4.2 GHz and I used the Precision X tool to overclock the GPU and everything is running stable so far. I played some games for a couple hours straight and no problems at all (*knocks on wood*). smile.gif
