  1. So I've gone ahead and bought a new PSU, and after installing it, it seems like that the problem has disappeared. So the conclusion is the PSU was the culprit, and I will be returning it as it is only one year old. I've replaced it with a Corsair RM750X.
  2. So I've attached a Youtube video since the file is 30MB and the max allowed size on the forum is 20MB. What you see in the video is a stress test running on the GPU, the temp stabilized at 70 degrees as usual. Then I hit the CPU burner, which instantly causes the PC to restart, which is why I suspect a PSU problem, even though it doesn't draw more than 400Watts. https://www.youtube.com/embed/Dlrg-F5SEIY
  3. It might be similar to that problem. Mine just happens the instant I try to pull a lot of power from my pc. Give me 30 minutes, and I will upload a video with an explanation.
  4. So recently I've started having problems with my pc rebooting under load, and I've tried everything I could think of to try and solve the problem. First my PC specifications, and then below there will be an explanation about what I've tried so far. OS Microsoft Windows 10 Pro 64bit Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-7700K CPU @ 4.20GHz, 4200 Mhz. BIOS-version/date American Megatrends Inc. 1009, 23-07-2017 SMBIOS-version 3.0 Motherboard STRIX Z270E GAMING GPU NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti PSU EVGA SuperNOVA 750 G3 Plus Gold Certified I first experienced the problem while loading a game, at first I thought it might have been a one-time thing, so I just fired up the game again, just to have it crash yet another time. I then tried to replicate the problem, so I started a stress test on my GPU to check if that was the problem. The stress test ran for an hour, and the GPU temp stabilized at 70 degrees. I then moved on to the CPU. I started a CPU stress test and let it run for about an hour. It stabilized around 75 degrees. At this point, the pc hadn't restarted at the CPU or GPU stress test. I then moved my suspicion on to the RAM, which led me to make a Memtest86. The test concluded that there was nothing wrong with my RAM either. So then I tried booting up the game again, which resulted in the PC just rebooted yet again. When I got the PC up and running, I tried to run the CPU and GPU test simultaneously which resulted in another reboot. So then I thought it might be the PSU that couldn't deliver enough, or that I was simply using more than the 750 watts my power supply could give. So I connected an energy surveillance device, which showed a maximum power consumption of 400 watts briefly before rebooting when I ran the CPU and GPU stress test simultaneously. So I'm really at a loss here. What could be the culprit of the reboots, when my PC is at full load? Could it be the PSU can't deliver enough watts even though my system is only using 400W?
  5. If you're only going to use it for gaming, 16GB should be sufficient. If you are going to do a lot of productivity, I would say go for the 32GB.
  6. I had a GTX 1080 Armour from MSI for quite some time, and I never experienced any problems whatsoever with it. I do think it's a bit weird talking a card down; you've never even owned yourself.
  7. I've also been trying to locate Sandbox, but to no avail. And I'm running W10 Pro with the latest update December 19, 2018—KB4483235.
  8. You got both your CPU and GPU overclocked, but how are the thermals? Is it thermal throttling?
  9. What VPN provider do you have? I know there are several which have setup guides, and how to route all of your internet through a VPN with a "normal" router. For example, I have an Asus RT-AC66U, which is set up to deliver a VPN connection to all my devices. I don't think there should be any problem, connecting Google Wifi to one of the ethernet ports, and receive the VPN connection.
  10. I used to clean it once a month. That got pretty tiresome, so I tried moving my pc away from the floor. And that really helped a lot. So now I only clean it every 6 months.
  11. I thought I had already posted a speedtest result. Turns out i didn't. Well before I had a 100/20 connection, but I recently got the chance to upgrade to fiber. :-)
  12. Haha, yeah sorry I'm Cuddlebumble on the folding home page. It definitely sparked my interest in folding, doing it as kind of a 'competition' I have bought a 1080 ti to increase my numbers at the next folding week.
  13. The last thing I heard was that it's still VAT free, but I'm not sure. Good question though.
  14. I wouldn't mind buying used hardware, as long as I know it's still covered by a warranty. I've seen plenty of cards that have been used for a couple months, and then for whatever reason it ends up on eBay. If it still got 12+ months warranty I wouldn't decline a good deal.
