Question about Cooler Master Centurion 5

Computer powers off and must be unplugged from wall before it will power up again

I have a Gigabyte motherboard in a CAC-T05-UWI case. Occassionally the computer will power off and refuse to power on again. Unplugging the power cord from the back of the PC and waiting a few moments before reconnecting fixes the problem. The problem is infrequent so its an annoyance rather than a major hassle (so far) but does anyone know just what might be causing this? Thanks in anticipation.

    Hi Sandrew,

    I probably didn't give enough information in my initial post but I'm pretty sure its not a heat problem. There are several fans already in the case and the IDE cables are tucked well out the way. Taking the side panel off makes no difference.

    The real clincher, to me, is that when the problem occurs you can't get the machine to restart by pressing the power button on the front of the case no matter how long you wait (the first time this happened I left the machine overnight before trying again in the morning). But after you've unplugged/replugged the power cord it will come back up straight away.

Hello, gsaint.

You might want to ensure that the CPU is being cooled properly.

If the problem is intermittent, the adhesive might need to be clean off and replaced, although this sort of problem typically happens when a motherborard is at least a couple of years old.

I had similar problems with my Gigabyte mobo--the board was unfortunately toasted somewhere within--it cost me my RAM (2 gig), and fortunately only the board got the damage beside that. You're lucky, the mobo is shutting you down--mine didn't. It also took Gigabye 5 months to get a new mobo to me-I built a new computer in the mean time--the Gigabye mobo sits in storage--I am afraid to try it again. I hope this helps, Lyla

Please check your processors temperature (h/w monitor, 'Hardware Monitor') in the bios settings, and refer to your mobo manual, sounds like an overheating problem. Try running your pc with the side off, for a few days see if it occurs again, check fans for being clogged up with dust, if overheating is the problem,check ide cables are'nt blocking air flow and fit a case fan, very cheap to buy

Power supplies are not matched to a case. Any one you buy will fit in the case. You need to make sure it has the correct power capacity and plugs for your motherboard, video card, and anything else you will have plugged into it.

It all depends on the equipment you intend to put in the case to meet your power requirements.

Power supply compatible with CAC-T05-UW

It uses standard ATX power supplies, get the best you can afford . Just make sure it has enough power for the components you are going to put in this case.

Power supply compatible for cooler master cac-t05-uw

Most brands like HEC, Gigabyte, FPS, Cooler Master, Enermax, Silver stone, Corsair, etc. Will fit in your casing but you must consider your hardware before buying a power supply.

Most power supplies that are priced below $30 generally do not meet the power requirements of the latest processors. To make matters worse, the components used in them are of inferior quality and more likely to fail over time. While they may power the computer system, inconsistencies in the power to the components will tend to cause instability and damage to the computer.

I have already own a cooler master cac-t05-uw case,gigabyte ga-965p-ds3 motherboard, and seagate st3400620as hard disk drive.. I'm looking for: power supply, cpu, cooling device, ram, and video adapter...

Hi, welcome to FixYa.

Currently, your motherboard only support Intel Core 2 family (not the newest Core i, even the Core i Sandy Bridge series). Here's the list of the supported CPU that your motherboard support.

For the memory, I recommend you that a very good brand such Team Elite, Corsair, or else. Here's the list of supported memory:

For power supply, you can take ThermalTake or CoolerMaster power supply, I recommend you take at least 500W as your power supply.

As for the VGA (video), it's up to your need, but I recommend you to take HIS as their cooling devices is very good.

Sorry I can't give you the model number, there's a lot of it.

Thanks for using FixYa!
