However, that's assuming that the PSU isn't faulty--from what you explained given your previous issues, it could be a PSU problem. Unless you have verified that your PSU is okay?
No i am not 100% sure its the psu yet it still might be the motherboard on why it wont turn off and the psu could be fine with normal coil whine as it goes under stress or playing a game but i cannot tell until my p67 board comes to cross reference it, i mean i could do it now but that means stripping out the wc etc which i am putting off till the psu/mobo actually goes as my mobo is due tomorrow/mon and the job itself is going to take up the best part of half a day (with no other unusual behaviour i am taking a risk running this system with the current faults but i think it will hold off).
I do have one of them cheap psu testers but it only tests that all rails are active and the volts supplied which i will also plug in when i strip it down.
Even with the faults i am overly impressed with this current system as its been running at these settings 24/7 for the past 3 years (2 years current cpu and about a year or so on the x6850).
