I have a TX950 Corsair now.
You're still pushing the limit on a 950, especially if anything is OC'd...

I still don't see you having enough draw.

Take off your OC's and if you still crash, than it's not a power problem...But, if it's stable...You don't have enough draw to handle OCing on that PSU.

Brought my cards down to 800Mhz and now works fine.

Thanks alot mate.



Btw would it be a bad idea to increase my voltage?

Yes.

What you've done is essentially taken a 850w stock setup and OC'd it on a 950w PSU...

Your draw, from my experience, is essentially at 1020w give or take the load.

You really should have a 1000w or at least a 1200w...Like I said, personally, I'd spend the extra cash and buy a 1200w...But, you could make due with a really good 1000w.

I agree here, I was lucky driving my 1kW power supply near around 950W and not going over. You definitely will need at least a 1kW, 1200W to be safe if you want to run everything overclocked mild to heavily.

Try running your cards at stock and pc at stock and see if it still happens.

What about my PSU folks? I believe I am covered but some other opinions would be nice.

I would but sadly only just got this PSU.

Tbh, 2 Gtx 580's is more than enough for most stuff at stock atm

Im happy, only a casual gamer

You will not need a 1000W PSU your current PSU will be fine. See this topic http://www.overclock.net/power-suppl...sli-power.html
