  1. ok so as the the thread states I play any pc game and within 10 to 15 mins all 3 turn off but my pc "runs" if you will when I turn it off it acts as if I shut down windows properly I have not updated my hardware since I made my rig about 2 quarters ago off the pc building guide it started about 2 months ago now I think its the motherboard but all lights/fans stay on the only driver I have not updated is my razor mouse(im not sure if that would cause a problem this big but I will be doing it soon) im just wondering if anyone else in the world has had the same thing happen to them

    OK im cant quite understand your thread that well but one thing I have spotted I have quoted above. You are runnging a VERY high end system here.
    The Graphics card you are using requries a MINIMUM of 500w just to work and your using an ECO PSU of only 520W. Dont forget a PSU is nto 100% perfect so if you allow for a 5% error this may actually only give you a loss of approx 25W bring it JUST below the 500W requrie for the graphics card to run properly.

    ALSO - the i5 Cpu your runnign as a TDP of 95W. TDP (or Thermal Design Power) is the maximum power that it would draw when running real applications. It could just simply be that your does not have enough power to run so it may be worth upgrading your PSU to a higher end spec say perhaps 650W.


    Hope this helps
    James
