This morning I have woke up to find out that my computer has died
I have only had it for two weeks, but now, I have trouble where the computer starts, fans roll and after a length of a second, it switches off.
I have the following specs:
ASUS GeForce GTX 560 1GB GDDR5 850MhZ
8GB Corsair Vengeance
1TB WD Caviar Blue, 120GB Corsair SSD Force 3
Corsair 600W Power Supply
Noctua NH-D14 cooler
Let's start from the beginning. After assembling the computer, everything worked well and I went onto with overclocking. After a few days, I managed to successfully OC Intel i5-3570K to 4.5GhZ on VCore of 1.3V. It seemed to be stable, Prime95 ran once overnight, with no trouble. And last night, I went to sleep switched off the computer, and I find it dead this morning - bizarre.
Immediately, I dug down to find the issue and the solution. First, it was suggested that I should change the BIOS battery. I opened the case and noticed that my GTX 560 has two diodes on green: ELED1 and ELED2. I went onto checking RAM, and the top of the Corsair RAM, the radiator thing, had the fan speed regulator cable stuck in between the radiators. The computer was lying down then, as I opened the case, and upon removing the cable from the "brush", it started and reached the welcome screen point. I decided to turn it on it's feet, and it switched off.
It then returned to the switch on and off problem, so I decided to unscrew the Noctua NH-D14 to reach the BIOS battery. I took it out and took it back in. I reapplied the thermal paste and the cooler back on, and still no result.
Where can I dig for further issues? Please help, I'm hopeless now. Thank you in advance.
