PC Turning off/crashing with no reason or notice

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I'm at a complete loss but this has started happening every night now. I wake up and it's rebooted again. There's nothing of use in event viewer- just that it lost power.

I'm using a Corsair TX750, installed a 1070 about 2 months ago, had odd random crashes once a fortnight or so before and after the 1070 but not sure if related. Last week it's started being almost every single night.

It doesn't happen during intense games. it does seem to crash and turn off (ms windows not responding) when I install a game AND do something at the same time but again no clue if that's related, I've never been able to figure out why it happens, it does seem very unstable. I have checked my temps and they are all low even in games, CPU etc never runs too hot.


At this point I'm about ready to trash the whole thing and buy new parts because I'm so completely confused. I don't have a spare PSU or really any spares at all to test with. Honestly would be incredibly grateful for any help.

Hmm. I am suspecting that you're using an Offset core voltage and you still have the C3 and C6 states enabled or at least set to Auto. If this is true, then the easiest thing to do is just disable C3 and C6.

You were 100% right, offset was enabled, I've disabled C3, C6 and C1e. It isn't overclocked but I was planning to try it sometime soon, this won't cause an issue will it? I'm still at 3.4 even though I stupidly bought the 2600k years ago.

Is there any reason this just started happening now and not before? This stuff must have been enabled for over a year now and it's never been an issue until now.

Thanks so much for your help

Only C3 and C6 need to be disabled.

 

Let's wait to see if this was even the culprit first.

Should I enable C1e again? The others just said C1/C3 Report so I wasn't sure if I had to disable all 3.

The setting for C1E doesn't make any difference for this. The way it works is, if you are using an offset core voltage and you're experiencing problems with the computer during idle conditions and/or light loading conditions, then it's likely that C3 and C6 need to be disabled. It's never C1E because C1E is very different from C3 and C6.

 

Now, I will say that this usually applies to overclocking, so I have my doubts that disabling C3 and C6 have fixed this problem. So, we have to wait and see now.
