You do know 750W is more enough to run SLI 580s with a huge overclock? check phaedrus his PSU calc:

Yeah I realize that, but I feel as though its a step in the right direction. I had a stable OC for 1 1/2 years and the minute I changed the PSU i got errors. I realize that PSU's can be different in terms of what they send, however, I feel as though I addressed any possible issues by increasing the voltage 100-200 mV on both the vcore and VTT. I mean, can there really be that much discrepancy (200+ mV) between what two PSUs send with it being considered a normal/legit difference (aka doesn't suggest that one unit is broken)? I could be that something just died when I introduced a new piece of hardware, but that just seems so unlikely.

No, actually I did not. Most of the threads I read suggested that you have at least a 850W and upon finding such threads I decided to go large instead of increasing by a measily 100 watts. However, in regards to the 750 powering SLI, I remember once while stressing my CPU, memory and gpu all at 100% that my PSU fan sounded like it was preparing for a launch to another galaxy, so although phaedrus' math points to the 750 supporting 580's in SLi I'm not sure I'd be comfortable with noise of the 750's fan.

Ultimately, I bought the 1200 as a future proof solution towards tri sli and/or water setups, not to mention the modular build of the AX is a welcoming change coming from the non-modular mess of the TX series. I figure, I'm better of spending the cash now for one large PSU than the same or more for 3-4 smaller upgrades in the future.

Overvoltage will result in BSOD too. More is not always better when in comes to OC. PSU with ATX specifications has a tolerated voltage range. You might want to lower voltage to maintain stability. So start the OC from scratch with new PSU. This will give gou a better idea.

Just an FYI for info.

It may be possible that you got a bad 1200 PSU. While Cosair is touted for their quality and such, it is possible to "get a dud" now and then.

I would tend to want to out the 750 back in and see how things work for a few days. If okay, then RMA the 1200 to NewEgg and let them know it is random failures on it.

Otherwise it is possible that your system is sensitive to something in the new PSU. It certainly has slightly different output than the 750 just from the fact of being new but also is could have a slight ripple/noise on a line that is intermittent.
Or your system has taken a "set" to the way you had it set up and doesn't like the new change. This is less of a thing nowdays but used to happen a lot back in the early days of electronics. Parts would "settle in" and become used to running within a set of parameters and when something would have to be changed, strange things would start to happen.
Weird I know, but I spent many hours chasing such "ghosts".
Especially since you have OC'd your system and "pushed" it out of the basic realm of operating tolerances.

Or maybe something in the motherboard regulation is slowly going bad from being pushed. Their are several "options" as to a cause of the BSOD.

Tough problem to diagnose since it is so intermittent.
Good luck.

I'm going to run with 6 gigs of ram and try an OC from there. From everything I read, even back when I originally OC'd 12 gigs OC'd at 1600 Mhz is pretty rough/taxing in terms of voltage, so my issues may be centered there. I guess I'll see how this runs for a few days and if it doesn't work out i'll try going back to stock speeds.
