PC Keeps Rebooting Every 5 Seconds

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Yesterday I was playing Rise of the Tomb Raider and my pc just shutdown. When I went to turn the pc back on, it just turns on for about 5 seconds, then reboots and does the same thing repeatedly until I remove the power from it. I thought it was the psu so I bought a Corsair RM 750i but the same thing happens. I also tried unplugging everything except for the 20+4 and the 8 pin cpu but the same thing happens.

The weird thing is if I keep only the 20+4 pin in but not the 8 pin, other things like the hard drives will work fine and it won't shut down. Any ideas what could be wrong?

Yes I have tried booting it with only power going to the 24pin, 8 pin, and to my cpu fan. I have tried combinations of having all RAM sticks removed, gpu removed, one stick of RAM at a time in different slots; but all combinations end up with it doing the same thing.

The only way it doesn't reboot is if I have the 8pin going to the cpu unplugged, but then the motherboard doesn't even try to post so I don't even get error codes on the board.

Hmmm, if i was you i would order a psu just to test if the problem comes from thsi component, then i would resend it it keep it back if it is the case.

Sounds to me like your board took a dump, unfortunately.

Yesterday I bought a RM 750i because I thought that the psu could be the issue but it does the same thing. My RM 650 is about 6 months old as well so I am kinda doubting that both psu's are bad.

Would there be any point in exchanging the RM 750i or would it be safe to say it is the motherboard or cpu?

Yeah that is what I am thinking at this point since I tried every other combination. Hopefully it is just the motherboard and not the cpu as well so I will post back when I get a new motherboard saying if it fixed the issue or not.

Thanks everyone for the help.

Maybe you should resend your new PSqu while you can, you never know if it could have been damaged by the testing.

Just wanted to follow up on this; I got a new motherboard from a member here and everything works fine with that one so it was defiantly the motherboard. Thanks again to everyone that helped.
