(Newbie here, been a LTT's subscirber for over 5 years, so, hi guys)

 

My rig keep doing these thing, it's like suddenly losing electricity, but my rig still on. Fans still running (case, CPU, GPU), but no display (my monitor going to sleep)and mouse turned off (its lights turn off).

 

I've been doing troubleshooting by swapping HDD, PSU, GPU with spares that i have, and been trying to use only 1 RAM and swapping them accordingly to see if one/both of them are the problem. The thing still happening (i can't turn on my rig for 5 days now).

 

What i don't have as spares are motherboard and CPU to use as troubleshooting tools, but i think it is save to say that 1 of them is the culprit (?), Right? 

 

My rig did got electrocuted by thunder 4 years ago, and damaged the ethernet port (it fixed now), and there are burn marks on the 8pin holes (2 of them) that powered the motherboard.

 

Is my conclusion right? Or there's something else that I missed? It's POST smoothly and the OS already loaded (windows 10 and ubuntu, i also to use ubuntu to try if it's a OS problem or not) then after a few minutes, it become like that. 

 

Please help

It sounds a lot like a bad motherboard, and from what you described with the lightning strike, I'm not exactly surprised (well, I am surprised it's not worse)

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.Skill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed 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)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad
