I have no idea why it does it the PSU came out of my old system and is around 12mths old
Not to sure why it doing what it is every thing was fine when it was @ 4Ghz but now is back to Stock clock it is playing up i think it is the PSU but would like some other OP's
Pehnom II 955BE Stock clock was @ 4ghz but house gets to hot now summer is on it's way (upgrading to FX-8150) soon
16Gb AMD entertainment DDR3 1600Mhz
2x ASUS GTX 550Ti (upgrading to GTX670) soon
2x 500Gb HDD
Antec Kulhar 620 with 2x Noctua NF-F12 fans
2X 120mm case fans
PSU Corsair GX650W
I hope this doesnt post twice as it crashed the first time... only while I post in these forums...
I would try and borrow or grab a power supply with good voltage regulation to verify if its the power supply or not. I understand your reasons for waiting. If you upgrade, the power supply forums are great. Or just ask these guys which they prefer on the 8150 and your upgraded specs.
2nd will your case fit a 240 rad? One possible option is to upgrade the processor clc and use the current 620 with the gpu mod on the new card. That way it will be used and people have had great success cooling their video cards with them while really cutting down the noise. Just an idea.
two people trip-t and chmodlabs are selling brackets to mount them on the cards ( i dont remember if the 670 requires a shim for the gpu or not.
On the cpu there are some cool new clc units that are supposed to hit the shelves soon. Eisberg by coolermaster $$$ which allows upgrades
coolit 320mm version, and i think the h100 is getting a upgrade also.
Hope this helps.
