Hi folks,

2 weeks ago I assembled and build my second gaming pc and everything was running smoothly.(didn't do any overclocking). Here's what happened: I installed Assassins Creed Unity on the pc and everything was going fine the first 3 times I ran that game. But the fourth time I started seeing that my fps(using fraps) lowered to 20 fps which meant that there was something going wrong...

I started messing with the graphics settings inside the game and all the sudden the screen went black for a second and then i saw red,yellow and blue boxes(I thought the gpu had failed or something) and all the sudden BAM... pc crashed. Tried to turn it back on but even that didn't happen even after waiting some time. The only thing I could hear when trying to power on my pc is a little movement in the fans and a small beep but that's it: no any signs of life. So I thought I was well damned and I started removing stuff to determine what seemed to made the problem.

Here is what I did: removed the gpu, removed all the sata, case controllers till I remained with only 1 RAM memory dimm, the cpu with its liquid cooler(seidon 120v), some case fans and thats it. What happened? No luck. Then I decided to clear the cmos by removing the battery. After doing that my PC finally booted up and I got into the bios. Restarted my PC to doublecheck and then got chassis intrude detection thing. That problem I got fast solved by again clearing the cmos while the jumper of the chasis intrusion was on the right setting.

Long story smile.gif , finally connected back my sata devices and the all the rest EXCEPT THE GPU. And everything ran as itshould. Next thing I read on a forum is that your gpu should always have 2 different power 8- pin cables and not the same. I had one cable which ended into 2 x 8-pin gpu power cables. So what i did is take a seperate capble so that i would be sure. Well guess what happend after i plugged those 2 cables? I saw a green light on the mobo, and 2 green lights on the gpu... so I thought to myself maybe its going to solve itself. BAM... there it was... my pc not starting up and showing no sign of life just like after the pc crash.

I was wondering if anyone could help me or suggest what can be the fault here?

My specs are:

CPU: Intel i7- 4790K Stock Freq.
CPU cooler Seidon 120V with stock CM fan on radiator
M.emory: 2 x 4 GB Corsair Vengeance Black
HDD: 1 TB WD Blue
DVD: Cheap budget asus dvd player
Mobo: Asus Z97-K
PSU: Corsair Modular RM 750
GPU: Asus Gtx 780 Ti 3GB(the name of the gpu on the box is slighlty longer)
Case: Corsair 300R Carbide Windowed

Any suggestions are helpful!

Please ignore my grammar faults smile.gif

Sounds like the PSU or the motherboard decided to die.
Does the PC start up without the GTX 780 Ti?

And your motherboard can be stone dead despite all the lights are green, i killed a Rampage III board and all the lights where green but the board was dead.

Thanks for the reply,

Just like I mentioned my pc does startup without the gpu so I'm currently using onboard graphics...
So I'm trying to see what the exact problem might be...

You sure its the psu and not the gpu who crashed or something?

The PSU you got is not all that good, but it sounds like your GPU is dead and thats why the system wont boot.

Thanks for the suggestion..

Do you know if I have to change the PSU or the gpu? or both? what would you suggest me changing stuff?

any idea how I can really test if my gpu is dead and why it died?

or

what I can do to fix it?

Try the GPU in another system if you dont have an extra system ask someone you know if you know anyone that is?
If that system then wont boot then you know its the GPU.

Dont think its the PSU the system boots just fine with no GPU in it.

i can try to use it in another system but what if that other system hasnt enough watts the give the energy it needs?

My question is actually: do you think that the cause of the crash was that my RM 750 failed at giving the enough amount of power to my gpu? or that it somehow gave the gpu a bad power...? or that the gpu failed because of a manufacturing problem...?

Like, in the end am I going to have to replace my GPU or the PSU? or the mobo? i dont even know where to start and I want to be sure before spending money.

What has more likely happened during that crash? too bad there isnt a log file on my computer or so..(or is there?) that can tell me what caused the pc to crash.

thanks

Really dont think its the PSU unless its broken its not a great PSU but its not bad per say.
You can try with another PSU and see if the problem is still there, but i really dont think its going to help

I could be wrong so if you want to try you could try another PSU if you have another laying around or one you can borrow.

And the GTX 780 Ti dont use that much power so a system with a decent 500 watts or above can run it just fine.

alright, so lets say the gpu is bad(i dont know it yet) and im going to run it on another system.... is it going to harm that other system? or would it just not start up like what i am experiencing now...

hope to not break other systems, ill ask my brother and hopefully ill get his permission...

question: can a bad gpu, possibly in my case, cause that a whole system wont even start? Like if the gpu has gone bad, can a bad gpu connected on the mobo cause for a whole system not to start?

thank you for your kind suggestions and tips

I am not a GPU expert but the the GPU is broken it could be the reason why your system wont start, you said it yourself your system boots just fine when you take it out.
