Power supply issues...

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Earlier today I posted a thread about my gpu's perfomance dropping during benchmarks and gaming. After reading some replies to my thread I figured I was overreacting because I'm fairly new to pc building. However, now I think my psu is having trouble powering my rig...The power in my home cycled(breaker went off and then back on) twice when I turned my computer on, and also my psu is starting to feel VERY hot while playing BC2. The psu is a raidmax rx-850ae 80 plus gold(which is a bald faced lie) power supply. What are some symptoms of a weak or faulty psu? Could it be causing my drop in performance?


My specs are in my sig but I also have a total of 4x 230mm fans and 5x 120mm fans with an aerocool strike X fan controller. Eventhough my psu is listed @ 850watts, based on the specs it's really around 732w(peak). Is this enough to power 2x overclocked 570's and an oc i7-2600k? I think I'm going to call newegg tomorrow and RMA my psu...I really regret going budget on my power supply.

i suggest you get something from here....http://www.overclock.net/power-suppl...-supplies.html

i calculated at least 750w for your power supply...meaning your psu is struggling to give your system that amount...
