Power surge on Persona 3
#11
When I looked on the net, 90C on full load for i7 was indeed high but was still labeled as safe.

It's hard to clean the the PC when I can't open it and each cleaning would cost 20 dollars and take 3-4 days or 50 to get it done immediately. But I plan on getting better than stock cooler anyway since it can get quite loud.

Even if it says on the net that it can run up to 105C it's way too high, I mean Intel is mostly known for cooler CPUs then AMD ever was, even so my temp with my phenom II 980 dropped from 58C on stock to 35C thanks to the Xigmatek Dark Knight Night Hawk Edition.

Still, seems weird considering I just tested the computer's RAM, temperatures on full load of both CPU and GPU and even under full load of everything the PC didn't crash so I can't quite understand just why it's having problems with The answer where the stress on both CPU/GPU isn't that high (temps around 50-60c)...

I suggest you to buy a Power supply 650W Corsair, is the Best for the PC Laugh

500W are minimum requirement for GTX 760 and @ full speed are really expensive in terms of power.....I play everyday @ P3 FES and no problem....

Sighs I said this before the wattage ISN'T what is important on a PSU it's the Amps on the 12v+ Line. His 500W is more then enough for his hardware.

^ You are right, however, most good PSU have all their amps (and thus watts) on the 12v rail nowadays anyway.

Beware a cheap "500 watt" PSU that has like 30 amps on the 3 or 5 V and only 15 or so on the 12vs. That one is borderline. But it has two 12v rails with 19amp each, so it should be okay.

650W is a bit overkill for his system. He'll be fine using a 430W 80+ rated PSU honestly.

Okay I had my PC tested at the store and no matter how hard they stress tested it with multiple tests, it never shut down on them, not even once.

So any possible ideas just WHY it's shutting down on me with The answer?

Honestly, I have no idea. Doesn't make much sense.
