Random shutdown help

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey Guys, 


I need a little help diagnosing my PC.  I am not sure if my AIO pump quit, my PSU is dieing, or if there is something else happening.  


When I first start my PC up it will often shut off within seconds, then work if I start it up again.  


If I OC my CPU it is an instant shutdown. 


Everything in my PC is less than a year old. 


1700x cpu

3200 DDR4 Gskil

240mm AIO  corsair

750 watt Thermaltake PSU

Gigabyte B350m motherboard

Zotac 1070 ti

Sounds like a motherboard problem.

If your AIO or PSU is dead, it won't work if you "start it up again". Even if it do, it won't be stable.

But, since you didn't get any trouble with that, maybe you can update your motherboard's BIOS first, and see if that helps.

Getting a debug card for your motherboard is also a good idea to me.

Updating the bios was the first thing I did.  I uploaded cpuid hardware monitor info

1700x temp info.txt


That text document is not as clear as it should be.


Most cores at idle about 38c, but one for some reason stays 10-15c higher

do you have xmp enabled for the ram? I know alot of b350 boards have issues when ram is over 2933mhz. if you do try lowering the ram to under 3000mhz

I will check xmp, however it would be strange that it would happen with having done no firmware updates, and shuts down the PC almost in an overload kind of capacity seconds after startup (on first start) or  if I OC the CPU.
