High Temp? No Signal? Ugh! HELP!!

Hi everyone below my issue is the run down/specs of my build thank you kindly in advance for your help!

I just upgraded the following after my motherboard seemed to have taken a dump.

Motherboard
Fans
Case

I just got it up and working this past weekend when it started to show "No Signal" on my TV/Monitor when this happened my back case fan shutdown and stopped which is plugged into "CPU Fan 2" on the mobo. Now this all happened while I was playing my game "The Sims 4" out of no where this happened 3 times the PC will boot fine no issues nothing only when it was during the game it would fault and there was no amount of time it would do this. Also it seems as if everything is still running just nothing on the screen. I went through and performed the following.

1) Hooked up to a new monitor and also switched out my HDMI to a DVI (Didn't help)
2) Rolled back any/all driver updates I manually installed (Didn't help)
3) Went through and updated from the factory site the following drivers (Didn't Help)
USB – (Installed)
LAN – (Installed)
Audio (Installed)
BIOS (Installed)
4) Removed the "CPU Fan 2" so the fan doesn't work (Didn't Help)

***SIDE NOTES***
1) Checked the factory site showing that my CPU is compatible
2) Checked the factory site showing the my RAM isn't compatible (Only showing 14.5GB on OS BIOS is showing the full 16GB)
3) BIOS is showing idle temp of 63C which is roughly 140F seems very hot (I have a stock cooler and ample thermal paste applied)

What the heck is the deal?!!?!? UGH!!!

More about high temp signal ugh
  1. There are others who may know right away, however... Just to be clear. You say that the PC has no issues until you play games? That seems to be a lot powered by an older PSU. Could possibly be the PSU failing while under the load of the GPU and 3 separate HDDs.

    Does the FAN port on the MOBO work when not playing games or has it not worked since?

  2. @jstrad -- Actually I tested it last night it shut down without even touching a game so this is overall now. I actually have no GPU it's only what is built to the mobo.

    Overall this the FAN port still shuts down even if no games are being played and the issue happens.

    Thank you for your interest

    If you are saying the computer turns on and after X amount of time it just randomly shuts off that sounds like the PSU is toast. I would wait for a few others to throw their input before you spend any $.

    Have you tried removing the RAM to see if you get a display warning regarding memory? That way you could maybe narrow down the issue to RAM because you say it isn't compatible with the MOBO?

  4. @jstrad -- Ok on the PSU

    With the RAM i spoke to ASRock tech yesterday they said the following "Your memory should be compatible with m/b"

    What about the temp at rest setting at/around 63C isn't that high?

    Yeah that is absolutely way higher than it should be. In regards to temp you're going to have to wait for a whiz to read your post. In the mean time I would still test the RAM in different slots as well as removing to see if you get a signal to the monitor. But if it keeps randomly shutting off I would test the PSU pins.
