Maybe faulty RAM or CPU?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello overclockers!

My RIG: 4670K @ 4.2 ~ v1.2, Maximux Hero VI, G.SKILL Ripjaws 8GB 2400Mhz, GTX 960, 850 EVO SSD, Windows 10,

I have a problem. It's been a week that my rig is doing some random shutdowns. At the beginnig I thought was because my OC wasn't stable at all. So I put every component in it's default speed (CPU, GPU, RAM) but the random shutdowns continue. I did some test and the shutdowns are very weird because you can pass 2h of prime95 without a problem but maybe 20min. after that test, or 30min after the first boot, the system shutdowns while idle or just browsing, after that the system tries to boot up but there's a message in the bios of Overclocked Failed! or just in the reboot there's no response and I have to unplug my rig and plug it again.

I check the TEMPS and are quite cool (CPU - 45ºC full load, GPU - 48ºC full load, MOBO - 38ºC full system load, Hardrives between 30-36ºC), so I figure out maybe was a PSU problem or a MOBO problem. I changed he PSU, problem still exists, I changed the MOBO, still the same behavior, changed the bank and I'm using only of the RAM sticks, same issue, changed HDDs, same issue, installed new OS, same issue, booted with a LIVE CD, same issue. So the only componentes that are no brand new are the RAM and CPU. What do you think?

The shutdowns are weird because the first boot shutsdown in a couple of hours, you have to wait like 5 min for boot it again, the second shutdown will occur in 20-30 min. But all temps are cool, I'm lost!

Any help will be much appreciated!

But, I checked the temps and are 45-50ºC per core in full load, 54ºC cpu package. Do you think that the sensors are giving wrong temps?

You could check Windows Event Viewer, but you'll likely only find an neoskernel error. ....but maybe there willl be something useful there.

Just guessing at heat...........

Maybe Windows Task Manager is trying to run something that's corrupted?
