Is my powersupply enough

post #1 of 42
Thread Starter 
i have a coolmax 750 w powersupply but my computer is restarting randomly when i start gaming to hard.

i have a p67 deluxe motherboard
i7-2600k (standard speed right now)
2 geforce gtx 560 ti ds in sli came superclocked
4 4gig sticks of ripjaws x 1333
5 fans plus 2 for my h80 cpu cooler (2 fans have lcds)
1 6gb/s hard drive
edit: also has 1 52x dvd-rw

my temps are all well below the max for both my gpus and my cpus

Or if anyone has any other ideas as to problems i would appreciate it
the thing that is odd is that i can run stress test over night and have no problems

ive also tested my ram in a diffrent computer and it worked fine which lead me to the hard drive.power supply dont know why i put hard drive

Coolmax PSUs itself aren't all that great.

It's rails are poor, and aren't up to snuff for some components.

With your components, SLi & a 2600k, plus all your accessories, I'd definitely switch to a more known PSU, around the same wattage (maybe?).

Mainly, because the higher end PSUs will have much more reliable power outputs, and and won't be as.... hit and miss.

honestly the only reason i have this one is that i won it off a buddy a while back. any suggestions on a good brand to go with for my rig its been along time since i was staying up to date on all of the brands.

I went with a Corsair 650W from my Coolmax 600W which was powering fine, but now that I'm upping some more components, and getting resource heavy, I decided to stop risking it and get something that can handle it.

Corsair, Antec, Seasonic, OCZ...
Just a couple to start off with.

Never was a fan of Raidmax cases, but never tried the PSUs.

TBH: PSUs are that most important part of your computer.
Though, least improvement in usage, but it'll last for sure, if you pick the right one.

I'd invest some money into a nice Corsair, and keep it for awhile.
