TLDR: Can a PSU cause a boot loop in one machine but not another?
Built a machine in the winter. Here are the components
I have had issues with boot looping. I reseated CPU, tested ram, replaced mobo.
Finally, I swapped the Corsair CX750 PSU with the Corsair HX750 in my work computer. That seemed to solve the issue. I had it checked out by Microcenter and they said they did not see any issues.
However I've since identified an issue. When running high graphic games like The Witcher 3 or HellBlade:Senua's Sacrifice the machine will reset. No issues when playing less intense games like OctoPath Traveller or Ori and the blind forest.
I built this PC with the geforce 2080 to play all my games, not just the less graphic intense ones.
So thats the situation. With the HX750 the machine works but wont let me play graphic intense games. With the CX750 it boot loops as soon as it enters windows.
Again, Microcenter saw no issue when they had it. I'm scratching my head here and frustrated with an expensive machine that doesn't do everything I built it to do.
