catalyst Posted May 28, 2017 Report Share Posted May 28, 2017 First of all These are my PC Specs : -Windows 10 -GTX970 Windforce X3 OC (Gigabyte) -AMD Fx8350 with CoolerMaster Hyper Evo 212 -8gb DDR3 1600mhz Cl11 -WD Blue 500gb 16mb cache 7200 rpm HDD -SSD kingston 60gb -Mobo GIGABYTE GA-970-Gaming -ThermalTake Smart SE 630w 1 year and a half old PC (except for the cpu Cooler which is 1) Original Problem : The PC restarts (the MOBO lights stay on, it seems like the PSU is 'farting') after like 1 minute in Furmark and after 10 minutes or less of gaming (Overwatch all low settings, Warframe, Endless Legend). Event viewer gives kernel power event ID 41 error . I have tried with a different PSU but to no avail. Both the Thermaltake PSU and the GPU have been in warranty. CPU stress tests run for up to 3 hours (at which point i stopped out of boredom). Browsing the web can go on for hours, I haven't got any restarts while doing this. No errors whatsoever just black screen and it starts all over. I scanned with Microsoft anti-malware, Malwarebyte Premium,no viruses. Did a fresh install of win10 but to no avail. Haven't really tested the SSD and HDD. Temps are OK! TL;DR Title + Warranty says OK PSU and GPU, RAM tests OK, GPU stress OK, MOBO OK Solution : Since my I got told my PSU sucks, i tried underclocking the GPU. Seems to be working now(but I've got some really bad fps drops in games) Right now : I have successfully determined that the PSU is the culprit. The warranty won't take it thought, and I can't afford a new one (don't think i'll be going for thermaltake anymore, i paid premium for this one). I've been using my PC for like 2 months now with maximum underclock on my GPU but it started restarting even with these settings. I've searched the internet to no avail. What can I do?
