I'm having a problem with a computer I just built. Here is a video of what is happening Click here

Specs:


EVGA P55 LE Motherboard


Intel Core i5 750 Processor


8GB DDR3 RAM


NVIDIA GeForce 9800GTX+


Ultra LS 600 Watt Power Supply


The case has 3 fans. Not sure about the RPMs.

I think the problem is the power supply. I may need a more powerful one? But I need a second opinion.

Well for starters you should ensure that all the cables are connected correctly.

Then ensure everything is mounted securely in the case with the cables tied back in a reasonable fashion to allow for sufficient air flow. You can damage the components having them lying about on the floor.

Check that all components are installed correctly. Remove the RAM and then reinsert it, making sure it clicks into place on the motherboard.

Since you've built this system yourself did you make sure your power supply was powerful enough to run all these components? It could be that you need a more powerful one to power all the components, although from the looks of it your PSU is more than capable.

Iv taken it apart and rebuilt it twice. And I removed and reinserted the ram earlier and it worked for a while until I plugged in the case fans. Then it started doing it again. And I did not check if it was, I just assumed it was.

After some tests.. The CPU was running at 94 degrees celsius.. Which most likely caused the restarting.

Thanks anyway guys!
