Finished WC Build Computer Randomly Turning Off

post #1 of 51
Thread Starter 
Just as the title said. I finished my WC build less than a week ago and now my computer is randomly shutting off. It never did this before I installed the WC setup so im a little flabbergasted. There is obviously no leaks and my temps are normal so nothing is over heating I really dont even know what to say except for please someone try to help me figure this out.....

Updated with more info:
System Spec:
CPU i7 3770k OC'd to 4.5ghz
GPU: 7970 OC'd to 1200MHz and memory at 4650MHz but I dont think the GPU OC is affecting anything because it has crashed at stock speeds also
MOBO: Asrock Z77 Extreme4
RAM: 32gb at 1600MHz
SSD: ADATA 120gb
HDD: 2TB western dig. caviar gree
PSU: Seasonic 650watt gold plus rated
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

WC setup:
EK waterblocks on the 7970 and 3770k
dual swiftech mcp655 pump with bitspower modkit and pump top
danger den radiator reservoir
alphacool monsta 240
and bitspower compression fittings (1/2 3/4) across the board except for a set of koolance QDC

As far as when it crashes. It does crash a little more often in games or heavy tasks but it also crashed on simple things like browsing the inter webs or opening and inter webs page. Also ocassionaly when it turns and it goes to automatically turn itself back on it will sometims immediately shut off again....

I will post a video build log hopefully in the next few days and if its not figured out by then maybe a build log will help out.

How did you install your setup and what was your leak test?

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but, if you didn't do those two steps properly there is a chance water drip dropped on certain hardware and is causing it to malfunction.

Or there is possible bad circuit on your connection to the socket on the wall, faulty power supply, or bad settings in bios

Sorry to hear you're having issues. The first step is to post your full system specs (what hardware, OS, what watercooling gear you are using, are you overclocking, etc. etc. etc.).

Also please give as much detail as possible as to precisely what is happening and under what circumstances. Is it shutting down during boot? While gaming? Or while idle, i.e. not running any applications? We can't really guess what's going on without more details.

What is your power supply?

Are all power cables properly and securly connected in GPU, CPU and in PSU?

I leak tested it for over 12 hours and put paper towel everywhere (and there was not a single drop on any paper towel) so I think there is an insanely small chance that this is the problem. Bad connection also a small chance because literally the only thing I moved or took out of the case was the Video and capture card switched pci spots and obviously installed the WB on the GPU.

Hopefully I got everything let me know if I didnt and I will probably also put this back on my first post.

This.

More information needed.

However, I've experienced this problem quite a few times with my last air cooled build. I had a exposed wire running from the front panel that kept hitting the case everytime I would touch it, even tiny vibrations like opening the DVD case resulted in bad times.

From the sounds of it, it could be a short circuit caused by a possible drop or drops of water.

Can you test with another PSU?

Do you have BSOD code?

Seasonic 650 watt gold rated. And they should be. I will go and check everything in a second and also check to make sure everything is seeded all the way just to be safe.

This power supply has never failed me and I would hope it would start but yes if I do have to I have an OCZ power supply of lesser quality that I could test to see if it is my psu. And its not BSOD'ing it just shuts off no warning at all then turns back on.

Well damn man, that's a LOT of stuff to run on a 650watt PSU.

It sounds to me like your PSU isn't sufficient. Try it with a more powerful PSU, if you don't have on you can pick up an 800+ watt PSU for less than $100
