Random reboots.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi, My PC recently started randomly rebooting when idle. I have not actually experienced it myself, because it has only happened when I was sleeping or away from my PC. Anyway, when I return I notice all my windows are gone and Firefox wants to restore its tabs when I open it (From that I'm guessing it must have been a crash and not just a reboot).

My PC is: i7-3770k@4.5 Ghz, 2xHD7870 OC Edition Gigabyte, 620W PSU Coolermaster 80+. 8 GB DDR3 RAM.

My question is, is there any way for me to log what happens before the crash?
I can't find anything when looking at BSOD Viewer (But I've also had that as a general problem, even when I KNOW I have had a BSOD).

My PC has been running stable for a over a month now without issue. (Despite this)

Windows Event Viewer gives me the general Kernel-Power 41 event.

Which Cooler master PSU?

If its a Silent Pro M2 then i think i may know why your PC has problems

But you really dont give a lot of info what OS are you running or what RAM and RAM speed?

Nothing like a reboot to re-assure you that your overclock ain't stable. tongue.gif

OS: Windows 7 64bit

This is my PSU:
http://www.coolermaster.com/service/support/model/RS-620-ASAA-A1/

My RAM are dual 4gb Kingston sticks (some cheap ones, probably their ValueRAM line), 1333 Mhz, 9,9,9,24 clocks.

I experienced instability when I tried overclocking to 4.6Ghz, due to the RAM and tried upping the voltage etc. eventually getting very close to stable. I decided however, that I didn't wanna bother anymore with it, and just live with 4.5 Ghz. I scaled the voltage down to what they were before going to 4.6 Ghz.

Problem is, let's say this IS a RAM issue, I can't know for sure, since for some reason, Windows doesn't dump any BSOD log. And since I havn't actually SEEN what happens when it crashes, I can't even check the error code.

It has been running perfectly for a long time though. And crashes have ONLY been at idle. (And ONLY the last 3 days or so)
