Ok just earlier this weekend I put together my new system its as follows:
amd 64 fx 55
Antec 480watt Trueblue
MSI K8n Neo 2 platinum
Corsair XMS CAS2 2 X 512
BFG 6800 gt
SB audigy 2 ZS
Thermaltake Venus 12 HSF
Now the problem I'm having is Random Reboots. I was also having a lot of crashes in WoW open beta and Doom3. I thought at first that it was my video card because my 6800 gt was running kind of hot so I stuck in my spare 5700 ultra and it had the same symptoms.
I have the latest drivers for everything and I just recently updated my chipset drivers which seemed to have fixed the game crashing problem but my random reboots still persist and seem to have gotten worse.
I do not think it could be overheating my case has 2 front intakes, 1 exhaust, and 1 top exhaust. I put the Arctic silver 5 paste on the cpu and it runs around 39-44C in BIOS so that i dont believe is the culprit.
I thought then maybe it was bad memory so I ran memtest86 for an hour (completed 4 tests) and It came up with no errors so thats not the problem. Then I thought maybe the memory could be overheating? I havent overclocked anything but I have them in slots 1 and 2 and they have heatspreaders but look close together. Would this cause reboots? I'm thinking of moving the one in slot 2 to slot 4.
The only other thing I can think of is my PSU but its an antec should have no problem with the power. But I did notice that it does not seem to be blowing out much air in the back. My cheap PSU that came with my Cheap case on my old comp pushes at more air than my Antec, could this be the problem?
Oh and my OS is Win XP Pro Sp1 if anybody could help it would be much appreciated (sorry for the long post
hope to hear from you soon).
