Computer turns off during stress testing/gaming - Page 2

post #11 of 22
I have a bad habit of skimping on motherboard screws, but my computer still works fine

@ocpokey Thanks for the suggestion. I'm about to tear this computer apart to add some more clearance behind the motherboard. I'm also thinking about re-checking the RAM since I've had memOK lights turn on with every reboot.

@Plex Sorry, it's an Asus p6x58d-e found here http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131641

you never mentioned anything about temps, are you sure you arent overheating? My gf's computer had the same problem, it was due to her cpu reaching over 80C under stress.

Temps are about normal (for my system). CPU stays around 70-75C ish under load and GPUs are about 80C under load.

You need to click on the User CP at the top of this page, then scroll down the left side to the Add System link and enter in your system specs in as much detail as possible. By that I mean 2 x 2gig G.Skil PC2-8500 CL5 ram instead of 4 gig ram, etc. That way we have some idea of what we are dealing with. While you are at it, go to the Edit Your Details link, then scroll down towards the bottom and fill in the Where You Live with at least your country. It makes things so much easier when people know what country you are from when recommending products.

Next, if you try to increase the distance between the motherboard tray and the motherboard you will cause alignment problems. What you really need to do is take everything out of the case, mark where the cpu socket is on the mobo tray, then cut out a backplate access hole that is large enough to allow it to be accessed completely. Much better idea.

Thank you PapaSmurf. I will do that

By the way, I found my problem. I think the motherboard was having grounding issues when my computer components kicked into high gear because of the two missing screws. In particular, after taking out the motherboard again, the standoffs for those two screws were completely off So now, I have screwed everything in the right way and will test the computer as soon as everything is back on. I was going to increase the distance but also thought of the idea that PapaSmurf gave me about cutting a hole into the motherboard tray. I will probably do that next week considering I don't have the tools to do that at the moment since I'm at my dorm. Thanks for your help everyone!

That usually happens when a certain bios setting is to high, I've seen it happen with PLL and SB voltages.

I agree, although I have all of the voltages set to stock.

It turns out I'm still having problems. I set my cpu back to factory settings and I'm running my ram with XMP. I still get shutdowns within 20-30 seconds of starting up a game (in this case, shogun 2) or benchmarking. I tested both GTX 580s individually and the system did not shut down. This leaves out the RAM causing the problem (since I left them completely alone) and basically everything else. I'm thinking maybe it's too much for the PSU to handle at this point.

Can anyone do the PSU math for me since I am not good at it?

Again, here is my PSU. a Silverstone ST1000-P. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...scrollFullInfo Newegg says that it is a 1000W psu and has a single 12V rail with 80A (85A peak) power AND it has 85% efficiency. Each of my GTX 580 Superclocked cards says it needs 600W and 42A on the 12V rail. That means that in SLI, the GTXs use 1200W and 82A total. Although I'm not sure if evga meant that these requirements take into account total system power or only individual gpu power.

ANYWAYS, considering these things, do you think my PSU has enough power? Keeping in mind my H50 (which I heard probably uses about a case fan's worth of power), a bluray drive, two Intel x25m SSDs, 1 HDD, and 6 case fans.

At this point, I would squarely lay blame with the PSU or motherboard. I have had a similar issue (albeit back in the day of my 8800gts 320mb) and it was the PSU just couldn't provide enough stable power under load.

It also happened last year where my Gigabyte UD3R power system failed to work and would shut down under load. It'll be very hard to find out which one it is without having a spare PSU, so I just went ahead and bought both a PSU and new motherboard
