Random Crashes-Power Supply?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just built a brand new PC:

Motherboard: BioStar TH55B
RAM: Mushkin (2x2gb) 4gb 1333 DDR3
VideoCard: EVGA GTX 460 768mb
Power Supply: Logisys Advertised as 575w but actually 450w
CPU: Intel i3 2.93ghz LGA 1156
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit

So, I was running this without the graphics card (Using integred Intel HD Graphics) for around 2 weeks and I never ran into a single problem. I recieved my graphics card monday, and installes it so very quickly. I have both 6pin power cords plugged in and all that jazz. I installed hella drivers all over that and it was all fantastic.

Then all of a sudden bad things showed their silly head.

I'd be in the middle of games, and the game would just straight freeze. It would be so bad that I can't alt-f4, or ctrl-alt-del, nothing.

Then it wouldnt boot, it would freeze on the windows loading screen.

I unplugged the card and it started running perfect again.

WhAtS uP WiTh ThAt?1!?!

Either it's the power supply (maybe it's unable to handle the stress), a defective GTX 460, or maybe the GTX 460 wasn't perfectly inserted.

However, my vote goes for the power supply. You have a fairly nice system, so why trust it to a cheap PSU?

Logisys is a known low rated power supply. I recommend you get Corsair or something better.
For a second i thought it was your ram timmings but i realized you said 1333 so you're fine. It's your psu. Totally. Time for a better one, go to Best Buy i think i saw a good Corsair for cheap i can't remember how much though but on the other hand go to NewEgg and there is a 500 watt and 600 watt on sale right now. Get it. Get rid of the Logisys. It's not that really good dude. Hope this helps!

psu sounds terrible i'm sorry!..you at least need an antec 500w basic, antec 430 earthwatts, or a corsair 450w-550w psu.
