Many warranties specify in small print that all warranty replacements are re-certified. And some don't. Also ask if the warranty on the replacement starts all over at a full seven years or if it continues from were the RMA unit ended.

Purchasing a spare PSU, for backup and testing ur Main PSU, is a must, for all builds unless u already have a spare PSU. A backup would be all the proof u need for a PSU company. If u put in a backup PSU and the problem goes away; then put the questionable unit bak in and the problem returns? Well, that is as absolute as needed. Almost purely scientific.

The only other almost scientific proof is by recreating the same problem in another PC. But i've read disclaimers about maybe not doing that because of the slight possibility that a bad PSU could actually do damage to a working PC. So unless it is a trashy throw-away-PC, the said disclaimer says to do so with warning it could cause damage. And that makes total sense. smile.gif
Well I tested my psu in 2 other pcs in my house, and it seems like the problem could be from my gpu. I plugged it into my extra pc and It crashes instantly in my gpu tests

good thinking.smile.gif

and wow, if it were ur GPU, we'd owe ur PSU a big apology. biggrin.gif

could the gpu crashes on the other PCs be caused by a vid driver? like u installed a fresh new vid driver after 1st uninstalling the existing vid drivers, in the other PCs, didn't u?

but Sherlock would be proud of u. wink.gif

Shouldn't matter since the version of the driver is new enough for the 7970.

nope. PC will always/ eventually crash when vid drivers are installed for one card. and then u swap in a different model number card in. even when everything looks fine and dandy in device manager and everything seems to be AOK. It crashes eventually.

so it could still be the OS and stuff.

u could try (don't have to/ just a suggestion) the following:

backup settings on ur Asrock Z77 Extreme 4 rig with, "Windows Setting Transfer wizard". (Type it in the Start Menu.)

  • backup all data
  • format c
  • Install a fresh Win8 OS
  • run "Windows Setting Transfer wizard" to restore all settings


See u'd have a new OS. And that's one thing u need to try. A fresh OS. Plus all ur settings would be back and u'd have a great new contingency plan for getting a fresh OS installed and restoring settings quickly.

i used Windows Setting Transfer wizard from Vista to my existing Win7 and everything is still perfect. So it will work fine for Win8 to Win8.

All u have to remember is that all settings will be saved/ restored. Just manually backup data because it takes too long to have the WSTW do that too. Have WSTW just backup/ restore settings and basic Apps. And after the restore, install a fresh vid Driver after uninstalling the Vid driver Win8 might install. And all programs and their settings will be restored to the new OS. But u will have to re-install apps on top of themselves. The good thing is that that it goes fast. And once they're re-installed on top of themselves, the old settings for Apps will be set like before. It's kind of weird why u have to re-install apps, but it has to do with Software licensing. Nobody wants WSTW to be manipulated and turned into a Pirate utility. So that's why u have to re-install apps back on top of themselves. But all settings will be there. It's hard to believe until u actually see the magic.wink.gif

but just before ^^, many ppl swear by SFC (System File Checker). And that would be cool when all data is backed up 1st.

system file checker windows 8 (The 1st vid looks promising.smile.gif)


i used to use SFC a lot for WinXP and Win9x before. But after Vista came out, then Win7, SFC seemed to have lost its' magic. But for Win8, well that's different. Because Win8 is all new code with a sprinkle of vista/ win7. i bet SFC is well worth a try; after u back-up all data 1st.

GL

Or skip all above and buy another PSU. Then if it never crashes, demand corsair replace ur bad one; because u will have proven it is bad with a replacement.smile.gif

I got my rma for my gpu so now I need to get a box and send it to them. I might call them and ask if I will be getting a 7970ghz edition or 280x if they ran out of 7970s.

Saw this after posting but I was thinking it could possibly be UPS-related if you use one. Certain UPSs (specifically ones that do not use what is called pure sine wave output) will have problems with PSUs that are Active PFC (which good quality PSUs such as many Corsairs are) and a sudden PC outage is usually a symptom of using that combination. Hope it all works out!
