4870x2 crashes on i7 board...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
For some reason my computer crashes everytime i try to run the 3dmark vantage benchmarks which came with the video card or when I play WOW. I went and installed the newest drivers on the ati website, and I can play wow for about 20 minutes, then the computer just shuts down. However it still crashes when i try to run the benchmarks.

I have my monitor connected through an HDMI cable, but i switched monitors and used the VGA cable which came with it, and this hasn't helped.

Currently i am running memtest and at 35% i have not found any problems.

Any ideas?

Overclocked at all?
Anything you're doing that's out of the ordinary?

Maybe its your psu? I've never heard of that brand, so for all you know it could be 50 percent efficient.

No, nothing is overclocked, everything is stock.

Well, im not sure how to rule out the PSU.

Here is the PSU have:

I just I noticed under the customer comments section that someone has had a problem with it shutting down under periods of game play...

How would i go about testing the PSU?
