I am having a bit of a problem with my PC as of late. When I start to play games on it or run benchmarks the PC will start to stutter and glitch until it eventually freezes completely or even shuts down. the stuttering keeps going after the game is stopped until the system is shut down. Sometimes the problem doesn't occur at al, sometimes after a few hours of gaming and sometimes immediately after booting up a game. The problem doesn't occur when the PC is only under a small load like watching videos. Temps under load are around 60C on both GPU an CPU
My system was originally a prebuild HP but I got a new power supply got a new case, some ram and a new videocard.
The specs are: Intel Core i7-920 2.66 GHz (no OC),
3x 2gb ddr3 ram sticks and 1 4gb ddr3 ram stick,
a Pegatron motherboard know as IPMTB-TK or Truckee,
an XFx rx470 black edition,
a 500gb WD blue HDD,
and a fairly old köning 550watt PSU,
I'm also running 1 120mm fan from a motherboard fan header and another 4 120mm fans directly from the power supply via molex connectors.
Thanks in advance!
A wonky PSU could absolutely cause issues. It's one of the things people skip on and it can bite you in the ass.
