|Okay - I've asked EVERYWHERE an NO ONE has a solution for me. |
Intel i5 2500K
AMD Radeon HD 6850
Gigabyte MOBO - can list the details but I forget off the top of my head
8 GB ram
600W PSU; OCZ600MXSP
ASUS CD/DVD drive
Computer randomly restarts - complete power off - during games - Mass Effect 2, 3, Starcraft 2 and once Far Cry 3.
Sometimes after 15 Hours, sometimes after 10 Minutes.
Once after manually rebooting as well with power still on it completely restarted losing all power as well before the OS had loaded.
Had the GPU stress tested multiple times. No Heating issue. Sent to store for test as well same conclusion.
NO consistency in issue. Sometimes after playing for HOURS and HOURS sometimes after 10 minutes.
No Heat Issues with CPU. Sent to store for test as well same conclusion.
Checked HDD no issues. Sent to store for test as well same conclusion.
Everything connected as it should be.
NO BSOD (yes I turned it on)
Ran Memtest86+ 10 times NO RAM issue.
Tried Updating Old Drivers - still rebooted.
ALSO in the event viewer it's a Kernal Dump 41 (63) - 0 bug errors
Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations
Again the case is a Coolermaster v2 or something blue light on the front. Lots of vents.
CPUID Hardware Monitor tells me i have 12V MIN is 12.074 and max is 12.221 during gaming
I see a 3.3 V and the min/max is 3.384 3.384 respectively
No Software Conflict - I booted it with just the essentials played a bit and it still rebooted.
I also have three different sound devices enabled; AMD high def audio device, High def audio device, and Realtek high definition audio device.
I read a few places saying the realtek was an issue with a kernel dump - but if so why would it let me play hours of games first, and how can I go about fixing it. Ive disabled before but it just reenables itself.
I'm lost. Help.
