Have you tried switching out the SATA cables and/or the tried the other SATA ports? Could be a cable issue or motherboard issue if it isn't related to the power supply.


That's something I am going to try.

Exhausted everything else.

Well crap.

Event ID 41 Kernel Power.

39 events.

So I get to replace my power supply while I am replacing the hard drives.

Blah.

Needed to replace it any way to take full advantage of Blender dual gpu support.

Bummer.

At least you caught it now and instead of later which could have gotten ugly. Sadly I know from experience. I still remember that day...watching TV with my friends and started smelling smoke. Was fortunate enough to be there to catch it in time before everything burnt, including my apartment. Win some lose some lol.

So I bought a Coolermaster case off of ebay 3 weeks ago, and it FINALLY arrived today.

Spent about a hour taking everything out of the old case and putting in my new old case!

So far every thing seems good.

Getting better temps and no bsods.

I did run into a problem my motherboard power cable are too short to make the run.

Which wasn't a big deal right now it's just laying in the case.

That will be replaced soon enough.

Last night couldn't play Crysis for anything longer than 3 minutes without the PC rebooting itself.

Playing good now.

I really like this Haf 922.

Easy build.

Ah I see, well that makes much more sense.

My current set up isn't even in a case, I have it mounted to a wall in other room on a open server rack.

Does your system reboot when you're doing anything else? If it does, how long until it reboots? Or does it only reboot when playing Crysis?

Have you tried playing a different game to see if you get the same results?

Hmm, thinking of what could be causing that and the first thought that comes to mind is there might be an issue with your drivers. Most likely video card drivers but if your system is rebooting even while not playing a game then I'm thinking maybe it's a RAM issue.

Perhaps it just needs to be taken out and put back in. I know if RAM isn't fully seated in the motherboard it could cause the system to restart.

What is your RAM configuration and have you setup or updated your BIOS?

No doesn't do when I do other things.

Like a said I pulled the thing completely apart, and put it in a new case.

Hasn't rebooted so far.

And from that time Nvidia released a new driver, and did i custom/clean install.

LOL!

One new thing i did was when I was cleaning the dust off everything.

The CPU cooler was pretty clean.. I blasted the snip out of the PSU.

Everything was going fine. Thought I have the problem licked.

Got a BSOD again.

So.

Come next payday I am replacing the PSU and my hard drives, and doing a fresh install once again.

Anything after that.

I'm done with it.

I wish you luck, going to build a new machine with an AMD A6.5400k. Never layed my hands on those with integrated GPU´s. I´m almost sure theres going to be problems...

That is the best thing about newer systems.

You can be up and running with less parts.

Motherboard/cpu/memory/harddrive.

Then add something better when you can.

One more thing.

MY power supply already shipped.

It will be at least a week before my ssds do.

I'm bummed.

The machine is not for me, I took a leftover case and bought

AMD A6-5400K Accelerated 2x3.6ghz/1mb
GIGABYTE GA-F2A88XM-DS2
Kingston HyperX HyperX Fury 2,5" SSD 120 GB
A new PSU (EPS)
8GB Mushkin ram that is not supported by the Gigagbyte :-/.
Took me a while to realize this, so I switched the ones from my own rig to at least get Win7+drivers on it and check the TRIMM and other SSD related tweaks (turn off your firefox disk cache..). Then I realized the DVD-Writer I have left over is not SATA. Damn.

240€. Coldboots in 12 seconds, including POST precedure .

Now I have to return the RAM and get the same model that I already have to make it walk.

Shipping: I was a little surprised, ordered Friday evening 5pm and the next day at 1pm it was already shipped to the person I build it for. That´s what happens if you are customer for 17+ years
.

Waiting for much needed hardware can be cruel, I know...

I use BeQuiet PSUs and never had a smoked one. They are practically unhearable and unbreakable. I burned a SMD thingy glowing orange-red on a mainboard, hot day in 2002...was also the last breath of the mainboard. 1200Mhz Amd Athlon Thunderbird, I still remember. Back then you had to bridge the L1 (?) traces with silver or graphite on the CPU to unlock the multiplier + frontbus manual settings.

Great times.

Ah yes back when soldering was a good thing!

As far as I know, BeQuiet is still a new company? There stuff is highly well received and reviewed. I did not opt to check them out with my current built but I may next time.

I'm in the process of rebuilding my Phenom II x4 build and think I may try one of their coolers.

I went with an EVGA GII PSU for the latest. I've replaced enough power supplies to know better.
