Power issue started when folding

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
my pc just kept shutting down under load or even mild load ... thought I needed a new PSU... so I ended up going with the Seasonic x1250

Unfortunately, I am still having the same issue. it did fire up once... then off again...

I had to reloop my GPUs as my new radiator was larger and was just hanging out of the side of the box. it had been this way for months...

tried booting just minimal components

reset cmos

pulled battery

and nothing.

Starting to think it is my mobo or chip. Plan to reset the chip tomorrow. I started having power drop issue after I started folding a couple weeks ago. PC kept crashing (though my chip was stable and prime tested) down hill from there

Other notable issues/**** - onboard sound went a while back, so I bought a sound card. The sound card doesn't fit under the gpu so I broke the grate of the gpu and plug in the sound card speakers this way. sometime the card slips out and the pc crashes. (could this be the problem? it has happened in the past and it worked thereafter). could this card slipping out fry the mobo or cause these problems?

It's hard to get a good mental picture of what's going on here, but components falling out of position could definitely be a problem. At the least, it could break IC's, chips, resistors, etc.

Worst case, it could short something out and permanently fry some components.

so I let it sit for an hour or so ...it booted it back up. and it fired up to window's ... no overclock .. default settings on bios ...

then crapped out in about 5 minutes. under no load

for clarity, basically the sound card had slipped out of the pci slot.

I am fearing it is a mobo issue... but don't have anything to test this out with. mad.gif

will re-set the cpu and check all connections tomorrow. but mad.gif
