PSU malfunction

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
A little introduction, my area has been experiencing power cuts, i had two since the year started. Since the first one occurred my cpu temps started to go too high and my pc shut down, i lowered the voltages to stock and problem solved, at least for a month. I also ran an Intel Diagnostic Tool from intel support, it was fine.
A couple of hours ago it shut down unexpectedly, and it didn't turn on. I then managed to power it up by changing the psu (CORSAIR TX 950) cable for another one from a lesser pc, now im closely watching my temps, but all's good. Im restless thinking that can't be it.
My psu is 5-6 years old with intense use.
Any thoughts?

Dude, my area experiences two power cuts every month, I've never had a PSU fail on me for that reason.
Maybe you should re-seat your cooler, maybe your paste started drying up.
You could be able to get back your OC, I don't see any way power cuts could have caused CPU temps to go up.

I'll try reseating my cpu, but what about the PSU turning off arbitrarily and not turning back on, only after changing its cable?
