PC restarts when I run Furmark or BF3

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
My current setup is an i7-3930k, 32gb 1600mhz ram, gtx670, 180gb ssd, and a 750w Seasonic PSU. The CPU and GPU are watercooled in a custom loop.


My problem is that when I try to play BF3 or run Furmark the computer instantly restarts itself. I'm thinking it may be my PSU but I have no idea how to test it. I thought a 750w PSU would be enough for my setup. Was I wrong?


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Tart

I'd say there is something funny going on with your PSU and the rails on it. Simply put because you only have problems when the GPU is running hard. 750W is plenty for that setup I believe, though it does depend on the brand. What PSU is it that you're using?

My first initial guess would be the power supply. I'd try a different one at around the same wattage or higher and really push the machine to see if you get better results! Good luck!

he says its seasonic in the OP, thats a reputable brand with plenty of power overhead for his rig.
so my guess is also towards a faulty PSU

Wow thanks for the quick responses.

I am currently not OC'd.

Is there a way to test the PSU without swapping it with another one? I don't have a spare at the moment.

It's not the PSU, clean drivers and reinstall them... come back with the results.

When it restarts don't you get a windows check for a solution thing?

Nope. It literally just restarts. I checked the error log and it says the following:

"The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly."
"Source: Kernel-Power"
"Level: Critical"
"Event ID: 41"
"Task Category: 63"
"Keywords: 2"


I updated the nvidia drivers straight from their site. Still the same result.
