Computer turns off during stress testing/gaming

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Alright. So I just upgraded a few things in my computer and now my computer shuts completely off during stress testing and with certain games (such as BFBC2). I don't understand it considering I didn't think I would need more than the 1000W PSU I have now. It is a Silverstone ST1000-P.http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817256057

Can anyone tell me if I might need a new PSU or if maybe it is just set up wrong?

I have a Core i7 930 OC'd to 3.3 Ghz @ stock voltages
Corsair H50 cpu water cooler (along with it's fan)
2X evga GTX 580 superclock cards in SLI
2X 80gb Intel x25m
1X Western Digital WD6401AALS 640gb drive
LG WH10LS30 bluray drive
and about 4 120mm tricools and the big boy fan that is preinstalled in my Antec 902 case

Does all of this seem too much for the PSU? Thanks

That is a high quality PSU..it should be handling this no problem at all.

Did you forget to hook up the 8 pin motherboard power cable?

I had the same problem when I first built my current rig. Make sure you have all the screws that hold down your motherboard tightened. Turns out I missed a screw completely and my computer would boot up fine but when I was in the middle of a game, I guess the mobo got warm and moved a little, hitting the stand off that wasnt screwed down and shorted and shut my system off. I had that problem for a week before I saw the missing screw. Once I added the screw, I havent had the problem since.

That happened to me once when I had my cpu clocked at 3.8GhZ with a stock cooler.
But that probably isn't your problem.
What ram are you using? The problem could be linked to your ram or the ram dimms on the motherboard.

@BlahBlahBlah It is connected.

@liljoejoe54 Haha amusing. I found TWO missing screws. I just put two in, although I'm not sure how much effect they'll have considering they were along the middle of the board.

@Scope I am using the XMP profile for 6GB of Gskill F3-12800CL9T-6GBNQ ram. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231225 . I will admit that my Asus P6X58D-E motherboard has that memok feature and every time I start up the computer, the LED lights on. It's supposed to highlight incompatible ram settings and allows you to press the button to have it search for compatible settings on its own. However, once it decides on a setting for the ram, it'll still blink after a system restart. Maybe bad ram?

Lol yeah it can be easy to miss screws. Mine was in the middle as well. I hope that fixes your problem.

how the heck can you miss screws on the mb? o_O didnt you check the alignement of the standoffs? if not there might be one or more behind your mb damaging some components...

Awesome liljoejoe54, I got the benchmark and games to run after messing with this since yesterday Thanks! I'll post back here if I have any other problems.

@kromar Stupidity can make me miss screws. That and the fact that I installed the Corsair H50 yesterday and the backplate required me to remove the motherboard from the case since it wouldn't fit initially. You just made me realize that although the standoffs were a good distance before the H50, I'm thinking I may have to increase the distance in case the backplate might be rubbing against the case. And here I thought I was finally done after a few hours of cable management yesterday.

You could easily run your system on an 850Watt, and possibly even on a 750Watt even at full stress.

I'd check all your connections twice, pull em and reseat em if you have to. I'd check all your components. I'd check your temps, under stress, and I'd physically feel your PSU when your problem occurs. I'd check your vid cards individually, your CPU individually, your ram individually, see what causes a problem and what doesn't.

If you can swap in another PSU too that'd be the best to test.

EDIT: Looks like you might have gotten it.
