Kernel Power 41

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi there, sometimes when gaming my pc reboots itself like I've hit the reset switch or something.Sometimes I can game for hours and sometimes after around 10 mins until the reboot happens.
I've tried running an overnight Prime test / memtest86+ and both have came back with no issues.
I've also ran Furmark on 1080p with 4XMSAA for about 2 hours and the max temp was 66 on auto fan.

I played left 4 dead 2 last night with a couple of buddies for about 2 hours. upon loading the 4th campaign pc suddenly rebooted.
When i loaded up my game again after the reboot as soon as the map loaded I instantly rebooted again.

I think maybe the PSU is on it's way out but It's only really started happening after getting a new GPU (GTX 770 Lightning)
I had an AMD 7970 before the 770 and never ran into this issue before so I'm kinda confused on why this is happening.

PSU a Corsair HX 750 which is about 3 - 4 years old so maybe it's time for a replacement i guess?

Sorry for the late reply I've been a bit busy.
Yes I've tried doing all the PSU connections around 3 times but it still happens. I will be receiving a new PSU tomorrow "Corsair TX850" and I will report back on how it goes. I just find it weird how the PC can be fine for days running games then out of the blue it starts rebooting thinking.gif
