power supply enough?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
i recently added a dedicated sound card and i feel as if i might have too little wattage on my power supply because my computer will every once in a while freeze while under load (no overclocking, stock configuration).

details:

i7 950
cooler: coolermaster v8
rampage iii formula motherboard
xfx radeon hd 6850
xfx radeon hd 6850
some basic g.skill 6gb 3*2gb ram
1 optical drive
1 hdd 7200rpm
1 ssd
3 R4 Corsair Fans (came with case) (2 x 140mm, 1x 120mm)
fatal1ty sound card

I don't know if these matter but:
mionix naos mouse.
steelseries g6v2 keyboard.
and some headset.

Power Supply: Corsair 650HX


I'm also thinking about adding an LED strip to the case, I dunno if I've already reached or passed the limit for my power supply.

If I've passed, can someone recommend a good modular power supply.

THanks.

Your Power Supply is fine.

Remove the new added hardware and test. If you don't get any lock ups, i would replace the card or find out how much wattage it uses or look into driver software conflicts or maybe temperature issues.

I suggest running a error check on the hard drive for damaged clusters. If none are found but you still have freeze ups, i suggest a full reformat. If the above does not work, it could be inproper settings in the BIOS or signs of hardware fail.

Good Luck.
