well the built in controller is week to be honest. there is no way it max's those fans out, at the most all the way up that controller has them at maybe 60 or 70% at most. I hooked the sentry up right quick and hooked on of the fans to hit and dammit man you get more RPM out of it

You're right i should had tried testing a different PCI cable. But this is a BRAND new PSU a second brand new one. I decided to get another one to see if it was the PSU but no. The video card MIGHT be dying. I won't know til i take it to the shop and find out.

Been working all week on this desktop trying to resolve the problem. I even tried three different NVIDIA drivers and the same problem occurs. It has to be a dying video card or motherboard. I'm gonna find out today finally at a local PC shop. I really don't have a choice now. I like to solve the problems on my own.

Here is an update! I took it to the shop and it magically works just fine on their monitor and apparently maybe it was a bad DVI? So i went ahead and bought a brand new DVI cable.


Hooked it up at home.

Played BF3. Worked good. Then i quit the game and nothing happened then 2 mins later my monitor went black and the PC rebooted itself non-stop.

Like it had a mind of it's own.


So my theory is...


Bad monitor?

Bad motherboard?

Thermal problems?

What could it be?

I downloaded WHOCRASHED program to see if it would dump files to let me know if there is a PC driver issue and there is NONE!


So.. i'm just sooo confused what is causing this.

Can't be temps cuz temps look normal.

Gonna go download PRIME 95 OR Temp Test just in case to see if anything happens.

I am running INtel Burn Test and the only highest load temps are 43c and that's hardly even bad. So far. Well i tested Standard mode. Now doing HIGH and it see the only hottest is 1 core i1 44c but that's normal. Well i did see it show one core is 45c now cuz i'm on a browser at the same time lol. It never reached 50c at all. I won't know til i keep stressing it. So far the PC is working fine and i don't see any crashes?

Weird.. seriously.

Gonna have to post in Corsair forums and see what kind of thermal they use in case i'd have to re-apply it.

So it cannot be my cooler. What in the world would do this? Maybe i need a new video card?

Didn't make sense that it didn't crash on me at the shop.

Maybe it's the monitor? Any ideas?

First, please edit your posts if they are one after another.

second, have you checked the Windows logs for the Critical Errors. My bet is that there is a Error Code 41 which is a restart from power loss. Typically it's from a bad PSU or GPU.

Wooo Hoooooooo

My 630's finally made it!

And double boxed to boot!

Here's a peek at the next adventure;

With a tip of the hat and a quick little flash to the NZXT Team . . . . You Guys Rock!

(maybe rock a little slow sometimes, but rock none the less, lol)

uhhhhh, when I win the lottery, or when NZXT sends you on a mission. . . .

Whichever comes first.


See, if I build a motorized pedestal for it that's RC controlled, then NZXT can buy it to drive around and show off at shows, and you'll have to come down to crate it up . . .

Are you talking about me or someone else?

Well this motherboard i currently own is over 3 years old. I have no clue if it's the GPU or motherboard.

After all i am using Corsair GS800 watts not the 700. I bought a new PSU anyways to see if it was the psu. I still had the same problem so i figured it was video card related or mainly probably motherboard.

I honestly think it's the motherboard. I'm upgrading to Ivy anyways. Probably is best to start fresh and not worry for a few years.

Honestly at this point, I'm just as much at a loss as to what the problem is. If your plan is to upgrade your mobo/cpu already, then I guess you'll be able to rule that out when you make the swap.

Drat! Double drat! I could use a vacation, unfortunately school only permits so much time/money. Get started on the trolly, I'll see what NZXT will do biggrin.gif

Yes.

Windows logs are beneficial to troubleshooting.
