Blue screening after new PSU

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
EDIT: Blue screening and freezing requiring hard reset with simple idle tasks

I upgraded from a 4 year old 650 earth watts psu to a 750 true power and now every time i run prime95 my pc blue screens. Haven't tested anything else in fear of a crappy psu (probably normal though)

Wanted to see if these voltages look normal, I know their is a 2% margin of difference accepted but this psu is alot closer to the 2% than the other and since its within doa thought i'd ask here though I know everything is most likely fine

I had that pb with my ax1200. Try moving the cables while the pc is running and check if it crashes. If it does, disconnect and reconnect the cables. See if that works

Are you using the asus software for overclocking at all? Truthfully the asus software is pretty crappy imo. It's caused me to freeze up and blue screen because it has some sort of protection that stops the cpu from being overvolted (which might be your problem). Once i removed all the asus software i stopped blue screening. Did you touch anything else while you installed the new psu?
If possible remove any overclock you have with the software (if you have one)
Uninstall all of the asus software
Run Prime95 Blend with CPU-Z and RealTemp opened up. If it doesn't freeze and works then it was the software.
