Hey everyone, I'm having an issue with my machine that I'm having a hard time figuring out exactly where to focus my attention.
So, first off, system specs:
AMD FX 8370 @ stock 4 Ghz
G.Skill Sniper 2133Mhz 16Ghz ([email protected]
2 x Sapphire R9 380 4Gb
Raidmax Vampire RX-800GH 80+ Gold
Win10 Pro 64Bit
Full custom loop on the CPU. Full load temps max at 45C
Now, down to the issue at hand.
In certain games, at random times, the machine will hard shutdown. No crash screen, no BSOD. Just shuts down. Doesn't restart itself.
Games I have noticed this in so far: DA: Inquisition, and Borderlands 2 GOTY
Sometimes it'll happen right after the intro to the game, other times it won't happen for a good hour or more.
Things I've tried so far:
Stress test CPU with IBT and Prime95, as well as stress Gpu in GPU-Z simultaneously. Runs forever with no issues. 24 hour stable if it matters to anyone.
Set CPU voltage manually in BIOS (This Cpu only likes 1.392-1.4)
Set RAM voltage manually in BIOS (1.6)
Tried with single Gpu and XFire. With XFire mode enabled and disabled, 1 gpu physically removed as well.
Any other ideas to check into would be appreciated. I can't seem to find anything obvious as to why this is happening. It seems to hard shutdown similar to what you'd see when the RAM is bad or the RAM isn't compatible with the Mobo at a certain speed. But it will run all day in games that are far more taxing than DA:Inquisition or Borderlands.
