Restarts without warning

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi guys

Was reading through the forums here and came across another thread with basicly the same thing happening to me.

My computer restarts with out warning. I was showing a friend my PC and turned it around for him to l k at and turn it back and it rebooted.
This morning i was getting paper out of my desk drawer and closed the drawer and my PC rebooted.
Now i have been having temp isues in the past 2 weeks. Going from idle 29c to 40c in a matter of 2 weeks. Posted this in the forums this morning and the suggestions i got was to reseet water block with some more AS5.

Now i dont think its a temp issue causing these restarts for the temp never went above 41c.
Each time its done this ((2)) i have either moved the PC or closed the drawer causing a slite jult of my desk.
I was thinking it was a bad USB controller that came with my new board. ((as per the other thread))

Any suggestions out there?

Boo

Thanks for giving me time resolve this issue myself. Rep for me
Figured out it was the main harness going to mobo. I had it routed so i could not see it, but in doing so. The harness was kinked at an angle, so it wasn't straight into the mob. Thus every time i touched it ((Bam)) reboot.
Shocking i would say.

All have a good day
