chef_nate Posted June 3, 2009 Share Posted June 3, 2009 Hello, I assembled this computer two weeks ago and had two trouble free weeks with the system. I ran Windows XP 64 the first week then decided to try a clean install of Windows 7 RC, which ran problem free for a week as well. Now, however the computer will start and operate hassle free for about half an hour before it turns itelf off then on again. If I leave my computer on after this, the time interval between the computer powering off increases until I can barely get past posting. I've tried leaving the computer in Bios, Express Gate OS (it came with the MOBO) and Windows, and each time I get the power off. I tested the memory, no issues. I reseated the CPU and applied new thermal paste, it runs well within acceptable temperatures. I noticed that while I was monitoring the temperature with Speedfan, my 12V rail was being listed at 11.30V (both the 3.3V and 5V were at acceptable settings). I checked the rails in BIOS however and the 12V was posting at 11.98, but in Speed fan it is always at 11.3V. I have used the PSU in a much older system and it worked well, so I was hoping maybe you could point me in the right direction as I've just about reached my wits end. Thanks in advance.
