So, this is odd. I got a new PSU, but it’s the same wattage as my previous one. I figured I’d play a round or two to test out the new Elder Kraken, but something very odd happened. First try, I was loading up a solo game, and before I got to the character selection screen, my computer straight up powered off without a warning.
I figured it might’ve been a fluke with the power supply, or just running games in general wasn’t a good idea at the moment, … So I try running another game instead. I run FFXIV just fine, no problem, no weird sounds. So I thought it must’ve been just a one off problem.
I retry Evolve, … I managed to load into the character selection just fine, this time! And I verified the integrity of the game cache, just in case. Everything checked out okay. But as I load into the map, … My monitor stops getting a signal, and my fans go crazy loud. I thought it was overheating, so I checked the temperatures after a reset ( didn’t have a choice to reset my computer ), nothing. No spike in temperature. What gives?
Gonna try to run it for a third time, then I’m giving up until someone posts something to test out here.
