HELP! Build is shutting off due to thermal limit moments after it boots up????

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Here are the specs of my build:

MOBO: Asus m4a88td-m
PSU: Thermaltake TR2 series 500W (switched out for a Seasonic 750w when at first I though it was a PSU issue to no avail)
CPU: AMD 960 T OC to 3.8 ghz
Graphics card: ASUS DC II 7850 2 GB OC to 1100/4800
RAM: 8GB Gskill Ripjaws @ 1667mhz

I have had no real problems with the build up to this point. But all of a sudden it just began shutting off at random times. I mean shutting off instantly, no BSOD no error no nothing. Now it wont even boot into windows for more than a few seconds without shutting off. I thought at first that a faulty or possibly underpowered PSU was to blame, but after switching the thermaltake out for my seasonic 750 watt this morning that does not seem to be the case. I also noticed that the heat sink for the CPU was BLAZING hot when I went to check the computer after the last failure. I have not had a chance to even check temps because it wont stay on long enough to do so. WHAT HAVE I DONE???? Also, I have the Big shuriken cooler and I noticed recently that it did not seem to be spinning at full speed. It would also start and stop at some points. I thought initially this was because I had cool and quiet enabled but even after disabling it is still doing the same thing. Is my cooler shot? Please OCN come through for me like you always have before redface.gif

I have done that, and it will boot up without the overclock because the temps are able to stay lower but my idle temps are still around 40C which is crazy. Something is still amiss... I had my cpu vcore at 1.55 at one point which I know is about the max the 960 can take but its been stable for months before this.

First of all, try safe mode. And check cpu cooler if its tight, or missing some washers (meaning it may not have enough pressure on the cpu ihs so it has air pockets)

If it does the same thing on safe mode then it's hardware related, could be cpu or vga. Shouldn't be memory, the programs should crash first. Also check sata cables and off -chance the wires of power and reset switches on the mobo.

Annnnd now my idle temps are going as high as 50C... something is seriously wrong. The cooler is mounted tightly to the MB, I dont see how I could need to retim the cpu but I suppose its possible? Youre thoughts anyone?

maybe redo the thermal paste

Since you were eager to replace the power supply, why not try a different heatsink/fan configuration, since the one you have now is proving dreadfully inadequate?

I agree with Jehab, the problem is your HSF. I had to get the Noctua NH-D14 to get my 1100T temps under control.

If the body oh the cooler gets hot, it is not a heat transfer problem. It's either a problem with ventilator that is not spinning to the top speed or your CPU is suddenly puling too much voltage. Try disabling that extra core. after a while when running CPU at high voltages they know to weaken and become sensitive. So bring back everything to stock and start the OC again.
