    I figured if it starts up that shouldnt be the problem right??
    Well you are complaining about restart issues, so....

    At any rate if you checked the cable and they correctly connected and all they may not be the issue. Haven't heard you mention anything about checking the CPU and thermal paste or CPU cooler?

    You also haven't said anything about reviewing the manual. Trust me, it's when we think we don't need the manual and think we have things under control, we find to our amazement we don't. Been there done that. Now I don't take things for granted and go over the manual to make sure my old way of thinking isn't causing issues

    Try this...

    Unhook all the drives except the OS drive, or even unhook ALL the drives. See if you can just stay in the BIOS without losing your screen (only use one screen), for like 1/2 or 1 hour..

    Also might try with just one stick of RAM in slot 2 counting away from the CPU.


    Btw, in your BIOS the F5 key sets your BIOS to defaults.



    Do this.


    If you can... take a pic of the way you have the PSU installed in the case.

    Me thinks reading the manual for "proper" RAM configuration would be the best way to go

    Me thinks that I've been building comps with AMD chips on ASUS boards for 20 years. ^^

    I've been building for 22 years and I still read the manual. That's me

    The only things I can think is that maybe the RAM is not compatible (rare)
    Maybe the power supply is overheating.
    Maybe there's something with the OS drive (or even one of the others) that is causing this.


    You've eliminated just about everything else.


    The real kicker is that it does work for about 15 minutes.

    Incompatible RAM, overheating PSU, or something wacky on the OS drive (or even on the other drives too), could all cause these symptoms.
    They could let the comp work for 15 minutes...then, mess up.

    As for the OS drive... there's a lot of Services that are Delayed start, which could account for the 15 minutes also.




    If you can unhook everything, and manage to stay in the BIOS for 1/2 hour or 1 hour... we'll be a lot closer to solving this.

    I mean if it wasn't I would overheat right?? My CPU temps have never gone over 65C,
    At my end, everything was fine with the CPU at 84°C. There is no overheating at your end.

    Here's my temps to give you an idea. This is at idle, with air cooling.

    Your temps are bit high but are NOT too high.


    Electrical / Thermal parameters
    Maximum operating temperature ? 95°C
    Thermal Design Power ? 65 Watt

    I assumed the ambient was high, or that you were running Prime 95.
    My room temp is 18C
