I just built this computer last night, got everything installed fine. Flashed BIOS, installed Windows, and installed drivers. Everything was running smooth! I got home from work today, booted up the computer and everything was kosher for about 15 minutes. I was watching a YouTube video when it shut down on me and automatically restarted. When I got back into Windows I used the motherboard software to check temps and everything seemed fine, it then shutdown and rebooted again without warning. Only this time, it kept rebooting after only having power on for less than a second.
I tried removing 1 stick and both sticks of ram, the video card, reconnecting and connecting all the power cables, running only the motherboard and CPU plugged into the power block, all with the same result. I tried running a PSU test with the 24 bit test pin EVGA provided and it runs the fan as its supposed to.
This is my first build so I am not a troubleshooting expert, but is it possible I blew something in the PSU by running too much power to it? The Watts given on this website are below 500 and I bought the 650W PSU to be safe, but maybe with all the fans at 100% and the GPU doing some work on that Youtube video, it cause a power spike and blew something?
