|Hey guys, |
So it happened to me when I played Civ5 that my computer just completely turned off without a warning. When I tried turn it on again nothing would happen. After 10 minutes or so I could boot up the computer but after perhaps 5-10 minutes it would crash again.
I waited a little longer and then the computer ran more stable, but I noticed that when I would play a game or do something else that requires a little more power (even like watching videos online) it would crash.
It is not the PSU because my PSU is pretty new and definitely strong enough. I am kinda sure that it is not my video card because when I took out the video card and booted up it would still crash after a while (even though there is a higher chance of crashing when the card is in). Also the card ran at around 65° C a idle and the card can go up to 100°C.
I actually think that it's not my CPU's fault either because it runs with 30-40°C idle and max temp is 62°.
I also took out both RAMs but it still crashed. I also let it sit in the BIOS for a while and eventually it would also crash.
What else can I do?
Mobo: M2N68-AM Plus
GPU: ATI 4870 X2
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955
PSU: XFX Pro 850W
