Pc boots but doesn't stay on for more than 15 min

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Recently built a new pc using used parts, got it to start and get to the windoes setup screen but then shuts off half way through. Trying hooking it up to an old drive, booted and went into windows but doesn't stay on for much longer than that.
Specs

Cpu- Xeon 1660 v2 

Motherboard- Hp Z420

Ram- 32gb ddr3

Gpu- HD radeon 6870 2gb

Psu- Cooler master 600w

SSD 240gb cruxial bx500

 

Not sure if it's overheating as in the bios it does't give cpu temp, the psu was not bought used and is about 1.5 years old, used it in an old computer before building this one.

Overheating sounds most likely. You applied new thermal paste? Does the cpu heatsink feel loose at all? Is the cpu fan running? You should be able to see temp. or at least fan settings in the bios... something like Power> Thermal or File > System Temperature

I applied the thermal paste that came with my cooler. My cooler is a Deep Cool Gammax RGB. I applied a dot in the center end put the heatsink over it, I hade to take the heatsink off to get the right mounting brackets on, but then put it on again, the fan on it is running and I checked and set my fan settings in trhe bios to max but it really doesn't sound much faster.

Cooler master 600w

What unit


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

EVGA G3 thread, BR/BT threadSeasonic Focus thread, S12II/M12II thread, Userbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions

Not sure, bought it new at a pc store locally, doesn't say 80+ or any other branding on it, just has a ton of amps and volt info on the side.

Thanks for your help, luckly I was able to find the problem on my own, it was plugged into a bad outlet that lost power constanly, now its running windows 10 with no problems. 

Once again thanks for trying to help, this is my first build so I still have a lot to learn.
