    Hey everyone.

    Decided to give HotS a try and my computer shut down and reset when I entered a match. Signed in, went back to the game and everything was fine. Tried again and same issue, only this time my computer isn't registering my screen or mouse. Still turning on, everything's lighting up, just not making that final step. Look in the side of the case and I have an '00' error code.

    I've let it cool down and I've reset the CMOS to no affect. Wondering if anyone's had any experience with this before I start taking things apart.

    Power to the chip . . . (or chip issue)

    I'd check the 8-pin power connector for the chip first. Doesn't sound like it's the issue, but it's easy to check since it's a quick disconnect-connect.

    Then again, part of me wonders if it might not be the PSU as it only crashed when you entered a match and thus, your GPU pulled a lot more power from your PSU. Now, maybe you PSU can't power the processor properly, either.

    It's a shot in the dark, but since those are easier to check than pulling off your heatsink and chip, or pulling out your board to check for a short, I'd probably try it first.
