My System Specs

Default Well, PC randomly turning off and steam not working.

Hey HardwareCanucks!


First off, I got my pc from iBuyPower.com (I didn't know how to build a PC when I got it) Since then, I installed so many different things into it that I KNOW it isn't in warranty anymore.

MY PC SPECS:

Motherboard: ASUS M5A97
Processor: AMD FX-8150
Memory: CORSAIR VENGEANCE 16GB
Video Card(s): EVGA 660 Ti FTW
Hard Drive(s): 1TB 7200RPM HDD, 2TB 7200RPM HDD
Case: Thermal Take Dokker
Power Supply: 750 Watt - Corsair CMPSU-750AX
Sound Card: ASUS XONAR DG
Monitor: 2x ACER 23 INCH
Operating System: Windows 8 64-bit


Now, I did purchase a i7 3700k, ASRock Z77 Pro4, and the H100. So if you come back to me and say it's my CPU or my motherboard, I'm okay with that because my shipment should be coming within a few weeks.

SOME RESENT THINGS I DID TO MY PC THAT MAY HAVE CAUSED THIS:

- Overclocked my GPU (I reset it yesterday, still had black screens)
- Turned off the 'Cool n' Quiet' option in the BIOS (I Tried it with this on and off, and still happened)
- Added a 660Ti to my system (Had it in for a week or two, just started to happen now)
- Added 16gb Corsair Vengeance RAM

Now, sometimes it turns off for my CPU being to hot, but I can understand that because I didn't put in the CPU and it's cooler, iBuyPower did. So If it is that, I'll just wait until my i7 comes.

Lastly, none of my steam games open up. I tried to launch BF3 in origin, and it works, but not a single one of my steam games launch. It just launches, then has a black screen and messes up my resolution.

Well any response would help me tremendously.

Thanks!
