    Default Potential Rosewill Capstone 750M issues.

    Hey guys, I'm having issues with system 1 in my signature that *seem* power supply related. I'm having random regular reboots, and during gaming sessions it will slow down and then have a full shut down (like in a power outage). What I've noticed on restarting it is that it reboots to the BIOS startup screen and says that a power surge was detected. I thought it was a brownout the first time it happened, but but none of the other computers shut down (nor did anything else, for that matter).

    Does this sound like the Capstone is shot? This happened at a seriously bad time, if it is. I just had to resign as a special education teacher. For those of you who have me on Facebook, you know what's going on, but for the rest of you, I was assaulted by one of my students, which resulted in 4 separate hernias (bilateral inguinals, an umbilical, and a ventral). I had the surgery to have mesh put in to repair them, but it turns out there was nerve damage, and now I am barely able to walk without a cane, and had to give up swordfighting, rock climbing, and a lot of other things in addition to teaching. I'm still going through diagnostics to find even how extensive the damage is, and it looks like the mesh may be getting recalled. It's a mess.

    If the Capstone is bad, can my olde Corsair VX550 power this system? I have a little bit of Amazon gift credit from wedding gifts, if I have to get a new PSU, but with having to resign, I'm hurting (I mean, in addition to the nerve damage).

    Oh, the warranty just ended a couple of months ago, I checked. My luck, eh?

    You can at least use the VX to troubleshoot. May not be the PSU.

    Can it safely power this setup? I'm mainly worried about the video card.

    You've got 41A on that 12v rail, you should be fine assuming the unit is still functioning properly.

    It was running my roommate's system, until he broke Windows 10, again...

    I'm going out of town for a week on a family emergency. I'll shut down my system and tear it down when I get back to diagnose it. The sad part was that I had recently just splurged on myself and got a new smaller case. It's not quite as high-end as this Lian-Li in build quality, but that little Raidmax Zeta will stick out from the wall a *lot* less and have better airflow. Now I just need to get a friend to help me lift the Lian-Li up to transfer stuff into the Zeta. No, it's not that heavy, I'm just not supposed to lift that much, pretty much ever again.

    I am back home, and was able to switch everything from the Lian-Li with the Rosewill Capstone to the Zeta with the Corsair 550VX, and while it's not definitive, it was stable during some light gaming last night, and this morning it was the first morning in a while that it had not had a spontaneous reboot during the night.

    I still want to actually stress test it, so, what's good for stress testing nowadays?

    OCCT/prime95 + MSI Kombustor (New version) is working very well for me.

    I used LinX 0.6.5. It is a front end for Linpack + AVX2. Linpack is what Intel engineers use to test their CPUs. It puts maximal thermal stress on a CPU.
