SChico Posted August 15, 2013 Share Posted August 15, 2013 Hello everyone, I’ve built my rig 3 years ago and i can say it has been an uneventful 3 years problem wise. But, recently my PC started behaving strangely. Out of nowhere the power would simply cut. It happened in Gmail and chatting on Steam with friends. Never during heavy loads… yet. No BSOD System is not overclocked All fans are spinning (most of them Corsair AF Silent) Temps are good (CPU and GPU) Case cleaned every 1-2 months with compressed air. Didn’t find any cracked capacitors on the motherboard. Nothing really out of the ordinary in the event logs except an unplanned shutdown. Power cable is connected properly to the PSU No strange noise/smell coming from the PSU No new hardware installation. In short (no pun intended) it’s pretty much like somebody pulled the power cord from the PSU. I press the power button on my case and my PC boots up. No need to flip the switch on the back of the PSU By the way, a power fluctuation is very unlikely since my PC is connected to a CyberPower CP1500PFCLCD Pure Sine Wave UPS. When the problem happen, everything connected on the UPS is still receiving power and behave normally. Is there a simple test or software I could use to rule out a PSU problem? Thank you.
