Shoot me in the face!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi guys been a while since I've actually used my machine for games and have had a new cosmos 2 gathering dust so decided to transfer cases and give all the water blocks a good clean and replace the tubing. Got some oversize Tygon anyone who's used it before will know what a pain in the back side it is to get the compression fittings on nice. Anyway all said and done and after a good 2 weeks of leak testing/tidying and setting the fans up etc I started to use it with no problems. Been gaming, watching films, downloading schtuff then while watching a film everything in the house turns off no lights no sockets so flip the breaker back and I notice a popping coming from my usb px21headset and when I open the side I see the mobo's led's blinking at the same time. I then remove all usb's from the case take the power lead out of psu and remove the 24pin from mobo and have a look for any obvious damage or smells as there's no leaks anywhere my piping is tight and really don't want to do a remove/replace test before exploring every option if I don't have to.
I jumped the 24pin and the psu starts and powers the fan controller so the 4 (waiting on another2) deltas spin up the laing d5 pump works and the inline temp sensors power and read fine. So assuming my psu seems ok just wanted to know should I seriously be considering a new mobo? Have i screwed other components? Or is there anything I'm missing?
Spec is pretty much my sig spec other than a new case, external 360 rad (with only 4 deltas), new tubing, and fresh arctic silver.
Temps never over 42° on the gtx590 and 36° on i7 980x. Nothing has been or is over clocked. As anyone knows, a lot of hard work and bleeding fingers (from the fittings lol) has gone into this
Any help at all would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

A little hard to read, But while your PSU is more than enough power, I think that where you should start your trouble shooting.

But it sounds like you may be drawing too much power from your electrical outlet. certain parts of your home can only supply so much power before it trips the switch for that area. I am not an electrical technician so i can't tell you how to check. but a way to test this theory is by Disconnecting all other unnecessary devices while you are using your computer. TVs,fans other computer's etc. and see if this happens again.

I had a friend run in to this issue when i brought over my PC to his place. when i started to use mine both of ours became unstable. He knows a little about house wiring so he got me an extension from a different corner of his house and everything was fine. he did some work after i left and we didn't have this issue afterwards.


Unless you have the knowledge on how to fix this or the money. just try this for a while and see if your problem comes back. if it does I would try testing your PSU somehow.

There is information on how to test PSUs with a multimeter (i believe) look in to it.

I space a lot since I am dyslexic, and i don't know if you mentioned that your PC is still working or not. If its not fried and still working consider my input smile.gif

Goodluck. thumb.gif
