Viotek Pro VTK-700W-24pin-v2 i have actually had some issues with Overclocking now on 2 systems, Intel and AMD where any kind of OC would lock the system so not really sure if that's the cause or not.

did a little googling (i am not a PSU expert) and IMHO i would touch that psu with a 100ft poll... I would recommend you pick-up a new psu, you shouldn't have to spend more than $75 on a decent psu.. i can give you some recommendations.. you looking to go xfire in the future?

edit: if your going xfire then this silverstone st-70 should be fine but if your not going xfire then a good 500w-600w psu should be plenty

The PSU is one of the few things in your build that you should never, ever skimp on. Sure, you saved $50 on it, but if/when it fails, it can bring everything else in your system down with it. Even if you're not sure its a PSU problem, as twich said, replace it. If you're on a budget, its even more important because if your current PSU goes south and takes everything else with it, you won't be able to afford a new one for a while.
