mrgrimm Posted December 22, 2013 Share Posted December 22, 2013 Hello, I just build together a new pc and was trying out BF4 , then after like 10min or 20min(random) The pc shutdowns and the red led appears on my PSU ax860i, i can get the PSU up and running again, but i don't have a idea what the problem could be. various forums say , it might be the GPU or CPU from overheating or it could be bad psu or MoBo. only tried playing BF4 a couple of times since those shutdowns of the psu cant be good for the system Now the r9 290x can get very hot like around 95Celsius, so in order to bring the temp a bit down, i have increased the fan speeds with the catalyst manager and now its around 90C, so that should take care of that part. (crossfire setup) For the cpu it says it around 70Celsius, so that also couldn't be a problem. I also checked the motherboard for any damage to the capacitors, they all look fine to me. For the PSU ax860I, could it be that it cant give enough power to the vcards or is there something wrong with PSU itself. since am not sure on all 4 parts and am not working on a daily base with building pcs together, i might have overlooked some things. I hope this is enough info to explain my problem. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
