|I currently have the following setup:|
Intel Core2Quad Q6600@2.40GHz
DFI Lanparty UT P35-T2R motherboard
4.0GB of G.Skill RAM
WD Raptor 10,000rpm hdd
PC Power and Cooling Silencer 750 EPS512 PSU
XFX GeForce 8800 GTS 512
For some reason I am getting random reboots and I cant find out whats bad. The HDD came from the last build I had and I just swapped it into this one and its been fine, but one day my computer just started randomly rebooting and I get no message. I turned off the "Automatic restart" in the control panel settings and it doesnt even give me a BSOD. I checked event viewer and got nothing. There is no trigger as well, although it seems to do it more when im playing Counter-Strike(i know its old). I dont think its a heat issue because I grabbed one of the garage fans and have it blowing right into the case and it doesnt seem to help. Sometimes it will reboot as soon as I get into the game and other times it will let me play a few rounds and then reboot. I did notice that if I run prime95 on the blended test or the large FFT test it reboots immediately, but if I run the small one I can run it with no errors. How can I troubleshoot this properly so I will know which component to replace? I already tried a new PSU and it had the same problem. Put one RAM stick in at a time, made sure and cleaned off all heatsinks, cpu and gpu are running at good temps, system is not overclocked...ran crystal disk on the hard drive and it said it was healthy, ran memtest for a couple hours with no problem, took out the sound card. My only guess right now is that its the motherboard, but how can I be absolutely certain?
