    Thumbs up [RESOLVED] Help please: Shutdown on Boots

    I've just built my computer, put it all together and then when I switch it on it runs for a minute or two, and then shuts down.
    I disconnected and reconnected the Processor and Water Cooling. It still did it.
    Bought a new, larger power supply, still does it.

    Now i've run out of ideas and out of patience.

    If someone could help that would be appreciated.

    Hardware:
    ASUS RAMPAGE IV EXTREME/BF3 INTEL X79 (SOCKET 2011) MOTHERBOARD
    INTEL CORE I7-3930K 3.20GHZ (SANDYBRIDGE-E) SOCKET LGA2011 PROCESSOR - RETAIL
    ASUS AMD RADEON HD 6950 DIRECTCU II 2048MB GDDR5
    G.SKILL RIPJAWSZ 16GB (4X4GB) DDR3 PC3-12800 C9 1600MHZ QUAD CHANNEL KIT
    CORSAIR GRAPHITE SERIES 600T MESH MID-TOWER CASE
    CORSAIR H60 LIQUID HIGH PERFORMANCE CPU COOLER
    ICUTE 1000W AP-1000AS

    Software:
    Doesn't stay on long enough to Install anything.


    Need any more information?

    Thanks in advanced for any and all help.

    If applicable,
    Clear the CMOS via CMOS battery removal,
    Assemble only the essential components to test via POST.
    Processor, HSF (Heat Sink Fan), video card and a single memory module.

    If POST is successful,
    Check all temperature readings, voltage readings within the CMOS/BIOS menu for a few minutes and see if shutdown occurs...

    Thanks Shinma,

    I did what you told me to do and wrote down what I could.

    Voltage:
    CPU : 0.792
    3.3V : 3.328
    5v : 5.040
    12v : 12.096

    The temperature is what scares me.
    The CPU was up to 80 degrees, in the red. then shutdown.

    So are we assuming it is the Watercooling not working?

    I will take it off again and check every part of the Watercooling.

    Thanks again.

    Correct. It appears that the processor's heatsink/watercooling is not making proper contact and/or is not working.

    You have every right to be concerned.
    The maximum operating temperature of a Intel Core i7-3930K should be 72.6°C

    Continually going over the maximum listed temperature will cause damage to the processor.

    Just taken my watercooling off, and reconnected it all.
    On start up the CPU is at 79 degrees.

    Any suggestions on how to check exactly what's wrong?
    Or how to move forward?

    That temperature is unacceptably high, especially at startup.

    If you are certain that you installed the watercooling correctly,
    Then only thing left is that Corsair H60 is defective.

    You will need to use another heatsink for the processor.

    How did you verify the Watercooling installation? Did you check the imprint of the cpu on the bottom of the heatsink? It doesn't seem to be making proper contact, or the pump isn't working right.

    I see no imprint of the CPU on the heatsink, so my guess is it's not making contact.
    Though I'm not exactly sure how to get the two to make contact, all screws are as tight as I can possibly get them.


    I'm going to be hitting the sack now, so in the morning i'll take it all apart and try rebuilding the entire thing, see if I've missed tightening anything.

    Thanks so much for all your help.
    I'll keep you posted.

    There's the problem then. Look at the manual. There is on picture that shows the screw mounts specifically for LGA2011. Note that the middle section seems to be shorter.

    Hi guys,

    So it turns out the instructons were useless.
    I ended up using the wrong kind of Screws, and thankfully my motherboard accomodated them. Also making the back panel irrelevant.
    This work and now my machine is running at 29degrees.

    I'd like to give a big thank you to any and all who have helped me.

    For the imediate future, SUCCESS.
    *fist pump*

    Thanks again,
    Red.
