Hi guys so iv been working on my new computer i made, and for the life of me i cant work out whats going on. iv spend hours looking at google (guess im not searching the right thing). hope you guys can help.
-GIGABYTE X58A-UD3R - motherboard
- I7 950 3.06ghz - CPU
- NVIDIA GTX 580 - gpu
- 60gb Coasir SSD - hard drive
- 200gb westen digital green - hard drive
- after market CPU cooler (cant remember but it works well)
- i've put the OS on the SSD and all programs on the Green drive.
- no over clocking has been done (yet)
- windows 7 ultermate (64bit) from tecnet (yes i have an account)
i have had (once) BSOD 0x0000000f4 all the googleing seems to say hard drive problem.
when im trying to play a game (crysis 2, fallen new vagas, need for speed shift 2) it will play the video intros. as soon (.5 sec - 3 sec) as the game kicks in the computer reboots (realy quick like a short circit, no beeps from computer)
what i've done:
at first i though must be graphics card so i Downloaded a GPU stress tested (sorry cant remember think it started with a F......) this put the GPU under 99.9% of usage using 14% of the memory. i ran this for 15-20 min (card hit 86C. stable) no problems. i then got a CPU stress tester all cores at 100% for 30min (CPU temp max temp of 38C.) double check looking at task manager and a 3rd party harware stats veiwer that it was at 100% on each core). then got hard drive stess tester tranfered all the data for read and wright at max speed with no errors left to run for an hour.
i've reinstalled the OS twice, aswell as ive reinstalled the OS on the ssd with out having the Green drive pluged in. and reinstalled on the Green drive with out the SSD pluged in. i've usedboth SATA0 and SATA1 for the OS installed HD. i think thats all
i REALY need some expert help on what to try next im close to throwing 1300 quid of kit out the window and go back to my usless Acer laptop.
P.S. i cant spell for my life, sorry.
P.P.S in all other then the first install of the OS there has only been steam installed to play the games.
