The power consumption is stupid high and that's probably where your problem lies.
Intel fanboy? haha

Read the posts, notice that it is not his power consumption, but lack thereof

Hence why I said PROBABLY never once said it WAS, just a thought, and maybe in the future you should try to understand what was said aside from reading what you want to read.

No, not a fanboy, just stating facts man. Bulldozer was a flop and AMD let a lot of people down and the AMD fanboys really took one to the chin with this release.

The power consumption is stupid high when overclocked in some situations and that's probably where your problem lies.

Edited.

Assuming that is your PSU and there aren't other versions with different specs I sincerely doubt CPU power draw is the problem here. I would run some other tests and post your exact settings. Especially helpful would be a P95 run and the FFT size of when it fails. Have you run memtest on your RAM yet?
