I'd like to thank everyone for their helpful input. I've finally decided to change my power supply, along with my dated RAM.
How do these sound?
No leakages, but a couple of them are bulging. Not sure what to make of it, but they move when poked. The board is about 4 years old.
Could you give me a couple of options like some good brands, series, etc.?
A little out of my budget, how about this one? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182294
Don't want to replace the PSU unless I absolutely have to, since my current one hasn't nearly run out of warranty yet.
Will try using a single memory stick, and check for any bulging...
Apparently missed this message since I was on my cell. Anyway I just found out that both RAMs have different manufacturers and ridiculously low frequencies. With that said they apparently seemed to work fine on a different computer I had a year ago. Could this cause hard reboots?
Used Prime95 and FurMark to stress test the CPU and GPU simultaneously, and recorded the results.
+12.0V - 12.030
+5.0V - 5.100
+3.3V - 3.390
prime95 + FurMark results:
+12.0V - 11.770V
+5.0V - 5.060V
+3.3V - 3.310V
Interestingly enough, the PC rebooted just after I stopped...
The card manufacturer PowerColor on the box. I also consulted various internet forums before making any purchases. I'm not sure why there's such a wide difference in the recommended power supply. Many internet forums say 650W is overkill for the card, but I'm not sure anymore. Anyway, wouldn't...
Well, the manufacturer recommends a 500W or greater power supply which is why I bought mine in the first place.
Also the PC ran smoothly the first few months running games like Far Cry 4, Wolfeinstein, Shadow of Mordor, all maxed out with nary an issue. Now my PC reboots playing YouTube vids...
Hello tech folks.
Could use some help here.
My PC reboots every 2-3 hours or so when I'm gaming (low-end games like Fallout 3 and farming sim) and sometimes even when I'm watching simple YouTube vids (rarely). Temperatures were completely normal even when running high-end games like Far Cry 4...
