When i try to run the performance windows test it shuts off... now it shuts off alot more.. I downloaded HWMonitor and i have a i7 930... Something that i notice with the HWmonitor is that my wattage spikes on my processor.. it runs at 45 wats and jumps to 145 from time to time.. is this my problem is 45 watts to low??
I have a Zephyr 750w PSU that is about 3 - 4 years old.. could it be non i7 compatible? I also noticed that during the performance test my cores got up to 99 C.. but if it is having power issues could it be reading wrong?? because the degrees would also jump down to about 83 from the 99.. the bios reads it idling around 60 C before boot.. I am gonna try going back to just 1 stick of ram and see if that helps also..
I figured I would ask since so many have decided to try building for the first time and maybe you have ran across this problem and know a fix
i7 930 2.8 ghz
6 gb OCZ ram
Nvidia 460 gtx
I figured 750W would be good enough for this setup?
