Sudden restart when gaming.

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Recently there has been a problem (never encountered before) where when I start a game, let's say kerbal space program, game loads, maybe 15-30 minutes into the game my whole pc would just restart without warning, no bluescreens or anything, it's as though I clicked the restart button on my case.

The pc does fine doing non-gaming tasks, I don't even shut it down overnight and it does not crash.

Today I started up world of warships, the game loads fine, but once the battle loads, same thing happens.

So far I have taken out the psu and gave it another fan externally for more cooling, still no dice. I also have taken my GPU out and re-sat it into the pcie slot, along with the PCIE power connectors.
I have also enabled no auto restart on bluescreen, still no bluescreen error.


I do have a custom loop running for my system so I highly doubt it was overheating.

Specs:

Rampage III Extreme
X5650 @ 4GHz
R7970 Lightning
Corsair HX650
4x4gb G.Skill Ripjaws X 1866mhz

Any ideas?

To add on, there was a pump failure before this when I was not at my pc, which resulted in the coolant not flowing and overheating, eventually shutting the system down. Pump has been replaced.

Thanks guys smile.gif

Make sure you try stress testing for at least 15 minutes when you finalize your overclocks. 99% of the time this issue is from an unstable overclock.

Maybe instabile oc or heat probs. Check temps(HWMonitor or something else)
In worst case the damaged cooling circle killed some components.

Not possible, the overclocks were there since a year ago and I never had this before.

How could I test to narrow down to which component could be damaged?

Easiest test around would be with another components.
If possible, test graphic, ram and maybe cpu on another board.
Ram and graphic could be tested by a friends pc.

Got myself problems with my graphic card overheating, but reason was air cooler dont work.
So maybe you can see unnormal temps by reading them out.

Another option is to go to your pc shop and get it tested but it is the expensive way.

A gfx card would normally just crash the driver, not reset the system.

If your CPU OC is not totally stable, that CAN bring down the system like you say.
