Cannot play BFH - hardware problem?

  • Ola,

    I have a problem with my computer. Since last week I cannot play BFH anymore... Nothing changed... Sometime it is possible to play for half an hour but most of the time my computer instantly reboots when I start playing BFH. I narrowed my search to a possible PSU problem but maybe you guys have some bright ideas?

    Tried a lot already:

    - reinstall BFH

    - watch/monitor temperature of my RIG -> nothing strange -> Even with all fans set to 100% manually... same issue...

    - Driver updates of all my hardware (if applicable)

    - No BIOS update (Donot like to do this with a possible PDU problem)

    - Remove NVidia "Management" Suite

    - Play other games... works perfectly... but BFH is my only "large" 3D game I use... Flightsimulator maximum quality... no issue...

    My RIG:

    Asus Z97-HD3 MB

    Intel Core i7-4790K

    Corsair DDR3-1600 (2 x 8GB identical)

    ASUS Strix GTX970 DirectCU II OC

    Samsung SSD 850 EVO - 250GB

    Samsung SSD 840 EVO - 120GB

    Corsair CX750 PDU

    Many thx for your tips!

  • If instant reboot I would also bet on a PSU problem.

    If you got a blue screen it could be RAM / Disk

    But these problems do not seem to be software-related, so I would not recommend installing / uninstalling / updating random stuff...

    You could try disconnecting one of the RAMs and the 2nd disk to lower the power consumption. If it works then it is definitely PSU.
