Hey there bleeping computer. I just built a new PC and have been having non stop issues with it. Wherever I turn (reddit, linustechtips, friends) no one seems to have any clue what's wrong. This has been one heck of a journey.
My PC specs:
Asus GTX 970 Strix 4gb OC edition,
z97 gaming 5 mobo,
1600mhz 8gb ddr3 g.skill ripjaws,
EVGA 750w G2 PSU,
First, I got every installed on Win8, games, etc. Started playing this Dino game in 1080p, when the PC crashed, and the PSU kept making a clicking noise and trying to restart every 1-2 seconds, without success. The only way to get out of this was to do a power flush. The crash was just a black screen, almost like a power failure.
Someone suggested my CPU was overheating, so they had me run stress test. Sure enough, it would crash every time about 7-8 minutes in. My friend and I installed Win7, still crashed. We then applied new clean thermal paste, wiping all the old off (someone thought perhaps it wasn't being cooled properly, a unlevel fan or etc.) But now I'm just getting a different BSOD every time I try and do something, and the PSU clicking thing still occurs every now and then.
