Yup... the system all of a sudden shut off entirely, then all on it's own started back up then POP! the capacitor on the 570 blew.

Thank you jemping, I am reading that right now!

also i found this page to be useful. you can look up who makes what power supply. some different brands and models use the same manufacturer.

Thanks HungH, about to read that.

But I have just read something (thank you jemping!) that makes me absolutely 100% sure that it's my PSU.
Quote:
Thermaltake TR2 RX 750 W is, according to our methodology, a flawed product that must be avoided at all costs. It can’t deliver its labeled wattage at high temperatures, but this is not the worst of it: ripple and noise level are way above the maximum allowed when you pull 80% or more from the unit’s labeled capacity (i.e. 600 W and above), overloading your components (especially electrolytic capacitors from the motherboard and video cards), which can cause your PC to present an erratic behavior (crashes and random resets) and, under extreme conditions, damage components.
I know that's for the 750w series, but still. That's exactly what is going on...

The only thing that's odd is that I was only changing my wallpaper... not "extreme condition" kind of stuff going on... but yeah almost sure that it's the problem.

I just spoke with ThermalTake and they are offering to replace my TR2 RX 850w with Toughpower XT 875W:
http://www.thermaltakeusa.com/store/...C=1024&ID=1186

Should I use that over the Corsair TX V2:

What do you suggest?

I'm still thinking Corsair because I just hate ThermalTake now... but thought it would be worth it to get your guys opinion as well.
