Hi Folks - Looking for some insight.

(I have two 630's if that may help - one at home and one in office)

Last week I went into my office and my 630 (lets call this one 630A) was off. I always leave it one, in case I need to access files remotely. I booted it and received one long beep.

I resat the memory and nothing changed. I had a presentation in an hour, so ran home and got my other 630, swapped the hard drive and made the presentation.

I took both 630's home. I took the memory out of 630B put it in A and it booted fine. No beeps etc. Seemed to run on my bench with out issues, so I thought the memory was bad (Corsair Dominator memory). I took at back to the office. It booted but only ran for a few hours and then would shut off. The more I would run it, the less time it would stay on. The fans seem to be working. It's a little tough to check the main CPU fan but I felt air moving.

Any thoughts one what I could check.

THanks....TP

My guess (and it IS a guess!) is a dying power supply.

Yes - It does seem to be the power supply.

What would a good replacement be if I do something like Newegg. - I would be concerned about wire length, etc.

Thanks...TIm

Lots of options at Newegg. The stock 630 PSU is 750 watts, so something close to that range. Modular PSUs give you flexibility without having lots of unused power cords hanging around. Seasonic, Corsair are good brands (many others). The online specs of the PSU will give you the wire lengths you're concerned about. Given the age of your computers, I wouldn't go too high in price; however, you could always move the unit to a new build to justify a high-end PSU.
